Identical Major Gene Loci for Heavy Metal Tolerances That Have Independently Evolved in Different Local Populations and Subspecies of Silene Vulgaris.


Heavy metal tolerant Silene vulgaris plants, originating from different metalliferous sites in Germany and one in Ireland, were crossed to each other and to nontolerant plants from a nonmetalliferous site in The Netherlands. Analysis of the crosses suggested that there were two distinct major gene loci for zinc tolerance among a total of five tolerant… (More)
