Description: A great expanse of shortleaf pine in Missouri was logged before the mid-20th century, and since that time, seedlings of the species have been planted. Due to large-scale decline in oak trees occupying previous shortleaf pine range, restoration of the shortleaf pine is a priority in Missouri. Restoration can be enhanced through the use of locally adapted trees that have the genetic background to endure the nutrient- and water-limited environment of the Ozark hillsides of southern Missouri. This study's objective was to document the distribution of genetic diversity and population structure in natural, remnant shortleaf pine stands. Based on the geographic level of genetic structuring, the results will be used in combination with ecological and silvicultural results to formulate a conservation-oriented seed management strategy for effective restoration of the species.
