Title: Gene diversity and genetic structure in a narrow endemic, torrey pine (Pinus torreyana Parry ex Carr.)

Author: Ledig, F. Thomas; Conkle, M. Thompson;

Date: 1983

Source: Evolution 37(1):79-85

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Recent reviews have suggested that tree species are the most variable of organisms, as measured by proportion of polymorphic loci or average heterozygosity (Hamrick, 1979; Hamrick et al., 1979). Average heterozygosity is greater than 0.30 for several conifers. By contrast, annual herbaceous species have a mean heterozygosity of 0.13 (Hamrick et al., 1979).
