Abstract

Compares the genetic variation within and among four populations of Schizachyrium scoparium using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers. Plants were collected from high and low fertility sites in a forest biome (New Jersey) and grassland biome (Oklahoma). Both local site characteristics (fertility) and geographical distance significantly contributed to genetic differentiation in this species.
