Allozymic diversity was studied for proteins encoded by 28 putative loci in 170 plants of wild barley, Hordeum spontaneum, and for 13 loci in 78 different thalli of the lichen Caloplaca aurantia, from the Lower Nahal Oren microsite, Mt. Carmel, Israel, designated by us ‘Evolution Canyon’. The samples of wild barley were collected from six stations: three (upper, middle, lower) on the south-facing slope (SF-slope) and three (lower, middle, upper) on the north-facing slope (NF-slope). The samples… CONTINUE READING
