Spatial and temporal genetic structure of Asclepias verticillata (whorled milkweed) among prairie patches in a forested landscape
Author(s): S. A. Fore and S. I. Guttman
Journal: Canadian Journal of Botany-Revue Canadienne De Botanique
Article Topic(s): Genetics
Research Setting(s): Prairie
Species Referenced: Asclepias verticillata (Whorled milkweed),
AbstractA study was conducted to determine if patch size affects genetic diversity (estimated with allozymes) of Ascelpias verticillata. Genetic diversity among patches was low in each of two years. Some evidence for differentiation was observed among regions.
