The population genetic structure of Arabidopsis thaliana was investigated in and among 16 British populations by means of an electrophoretic survey of nine enzyme systems. Seven out of 17 allozyme loci examined were polymorphic. One polymorphic locus was used as a marker locus for estimating outcrossing rates. No outcrossing was observed within any of seven populations surveyed and a joint estimate of the upper limit of outcrossing, [tcirc ]u, indicated that average outcrossing in the wild does… Expand

Microsatellite polymorphism in natural populations of the wild plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
Variation in repeat number at 20 microsatellite loci of Arabidopsis thaliana was studied in a worldwide sample of 42 ecotypes to investigate the pattern and level of polymorphism in repetitiveExpand
Genetic variation within and among populations of Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
Level of nucleotide polymorphism within and among populations of the highly self-fertilizing Brassicaceous species, Arabidopsis thaliana, is investigated, finding no association between geographical distance between populations and genetic distance. Expand
Genetic Diversity in Natural Populations of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. from Karelia
TLDR
It is suggested that a high polymorphism level in Karelian Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) populations increasing from the south to the north is due to extreme environmental conditions in the northern part of the species range. Expand
Subdivision and haplotype structure in natural populations of Arabidopsis lyrata
TLDR
Analysis of patterns of DNA polymorphism within and between four populations of the outcrossing plant Arabidopsis lyrata suggests lower recombination than predicted based on the variability together with physical recombination rates estimated from A. thaliana, suggesting either a population bottleneck in North American populations or recent admixture involving diverged European populations. Expand
Genetic variability in natural populations of Arabidopsis thaliana in northern Europe
TLDR
There was a positive association between variability in quantitative traits and microsatellites within populations, and several quantitative traits exhibited QST values significantly less than FST, suggesting that selection may be acting to retard differentiation for these traits. Expand
Genetic variation in Arabidopsis suecica and its parental species A. arenosa and A. thaliana.
Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers were used to estimate the level of genetic variation in Swedish accessions of the allopolyploid Arabidopsis suecica and its parental species A.Expand
Patterns of Polymorphism and Demographic History in Natural Populations of Arabidopsis lyrata
TLDR
Nucleotide diversity in six natural populations of Arabidopsis lyrata was studied, finding evidence of population divergence over the past 19,000 to 47,000 years involving non-equilibrium demographic events that reduced the effective size of most populations. Expand
DNA variation in the wild plant Arabidopsis thaliana revealed by amplified fragment length polymorphism analysis.
TLDR
A neighbor-joining tree was constructed on the basis of the AFLP variation and has a star-like topology and shows no clear association between ecotype and geographic origin, suggesting a recent spread of this plant species and limited migration between its habitats. Expand
Distribution of genetic variation within and among local populations of Arabidopsis thaliana over its species range
TLDR
It is hypothesized that most dispersal between A. thaliana populations is by pollen rather than seed, and it appears that regional groups of local populations may provide the most appropriate genetic material for linkage disequilibrium mapping of adaptive traits. Expand
Population genetic structure of Arabidopsis lyrata in Europe
TLDR
The maintenance of geographically widespread polymorphisms and uniformly high diversity throughout central Europe is consistent with periglacial survival of A. petraea in historically nonglaciated regions of central Europe. Expand

TLDR
The results strongly suggest that some outbreeding occurs in natural populations of Arabidopsis thaliana, as well as between families within populations. Expand

TLDR
The results of Napp-Zinn (1964) suggest that Arabidopsis populations are in fact of this type, and it is found that the variation shown by families from natural populations is greater than that of inbred lines. Expand

TLDR
High overall levels of inbreeding are observed, and chasmogamy significantly reduces fixation, which may account for the observed greater fitness of CH progeny. Expand
ECOLOGICAL DETERMINANTS OF GENETIC STRUCTURE IN PLANT POPULATIONS
TLDR
This work limits the definition of genetic structure to the nonrandom distribution of alleles or genotypes in space or time and disregard genome organization and meiotic processes that can also affect allele and genotype frequencies. Expand

TLDR
The results from these investigations, which concern metrical characters, show that the variances of natural progenies are heterogeneous inter se and that they frequently exceed those of laboratory inbred lines. Expand

Allozyme variants of 10 enzyme systems occurring in megagametophyte and embryo tissues of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) seeds and evidence for their inheritance are described and linked relationships among the loci coding these allozymes are reported. Expand

TLDR
Electrophoresis was used to examine levels of association between alleles at different variable loci within eight natural populations of the annual plant, Impatiens capensis, and revealed significant levels of disequilibrium in most of the populations. Expand
Genetic differentiation, sympatric speciation, and the origin of a diploid species of stephanomeria.
TLDR
The origin of "Malheurensis" appears to be an exception to the theory of geographical speciation because spatial isolation is not necessary at any time for the origin or establishment of its reproductive isolating barriers. Expand

TLDR
Glutamate dehydrogenase of Arabidopsis thaliana could be resolved by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis into seven anodal migrating isozymes, and genetic analysis showed that the two variants N and S represent co-dominantly expressed allelic forms of the gene GDH1. Expand
