Comparison of allozyme variability in a native and an introduced species of Lonicera

Author(s): K. A. Schierenbeck, J. L. Hamrick and R. N. Mack

Month: Jul
Year: 1995

Publication Type: Article
Journal: Heredity
Volume: 75
Pages: 1-9

Article Topic(s): Genetics,Invasive species
Research Setting(s): Laboratory

Species Referenced: Lonicera sempervirens (Coral honeysuckle),

Abstract

Compares genetic diversity of the native Lonicera sempervirens and the invasive L. japonica in the southeastern United States. Lonicera sempervirens had higher levels of genetic diversity than L. japonica, although both species exhibited high levels of diversity. The article concludes that genetic diversity may be less important than life history traits in determining invasibility of L. japonica.
