Title: Genetic diversity and structure of western white pine (Pinus monticola) in North America: A baseline study for conservation, restoration, and addressing impacts of climate change

Author: Kim, Mee-Sook; Richardson, Bryce A.; McDonald, Geral I.; Klopfenstein, Ned B.

Publication Series: Journal/Magazine Article (JRNL)

Description: Western white pine (Pinus monticola) is an economically and ecologically important species in western North America that has declined in prominence over the past several decades, mainly due to the introduction of Cronartium ribicola (cause of white pine blister rust) and reduced opportunities for regeneration. Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers were used to assess the genetic diversity and structure among populations at 15 sites (e.g., provenances) across the native range of western white pine. The level of genetic diversity was different among 15 populations tested using 66 polymorphic AFLP loci.

Keywords: genetic variation, tree population structure, Pinus monticola
