    It has recently been hypothesized that genetic markers experiencing high rates of gene flow would be better suited to differentiate closely related species. We tested this hypothesis by examining genetic variation in the chloroplast (cp) DNA ( trnS- trnG and trnL- trnF) and mitochondrial (mt)...

    Hybridization experiments among fir ( Abies) species contribute to clarification of both crossability and evolutionary relationships of organisms at least from the second half of the nineteenth century. The main aim of our study was to find possible effects of hybridization on survival rate and...

    Abies nephrolepis Max. is a fir species occurring in Northeast China, the extreme southeast of Russia and Korea. In Korea, A. nephrolepis is one of only three native fir species growing in high, mountainous areas with a disjunct distribution. We investigated genetic variation in A. nephrolepis...
