AbstractResearches the genetic variation within and among populations of Iris hexagona in the Florida peninsula. Populations are predominantly outcrossing, with the majority of genetic variation within populations. Genetic variation among populations is estimated to be around 20%. There are four population clusters and seven effective populations.
