One goal of population genetics is to quantify and explain genetic structure within and among populations. Factors such as genetic drift, inbreeding, gene flow and selection are expected to influence levels and distribution of genetic variation. I review available data on genetic structure of vernal pool plant species with respect to these factors. Where relevant data are lacking, as is often the case for vernal pool plants, I examine how these factors are expected to influence vernal pool… CONTINUE READING
