AbstractAllozymes wer used to compare the genetic diversity of plants at a restoration site in Indiana with the diversity of nursery seed sources. Baptisia leucantha, Asclepias incarnata, Coreopsis tripteris, and Zizia aurea in restored sites all had lower allozyme diversity and lost polymorphisms. However the majority of diversity was represented at the restoration site.
