  • 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… CONTINUE READING
