- Population dynamics of the symbiotic mushroom Hebeloma cylindrosporum: mycelial persistence and inbreeding. Gryta, Herve; Debaud, Jean-Claude; Marmeisse, Roland // Heredity;Mar2000, Vol. 84 Issue 3, p294
The pattern of colonization of a forest site by the ectomycorrhizal basidiomycete fungus Hebeloma cylindrosporum Romagnesi was followed from 1993 until 1997. Fruit-bodies of this tetrapolar heterothallic species were mapped, collected and propagated as pure mycelial cultures. Isolates were...
- Cypripediurn cakeolus -- reasons for rarity, and reintroduction. // Orchid Review;Sep2012, Vol. 120 Issue 1299, p135
The article focuses on the results of recent DNA studies conducted by a team of geneticists at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, England and from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark which unveiled the low genetic variation in isolated populations of Cypripedium calceolus.
- hitchhiking effect:. Schlegel, Rolf H. J. // Encyclopedic Dictionary of Plant Breeding & Related Subjects;2003, p211
A definition of the term "hitchhiking effect" is presented, which refers to genes favored in a population by close linkage with other genes.
- Genetic mechanisms of floral trait correlations in a natural population. Conner, Jeffrey K. // Nature;11/28/2002, Vol. 420 Issue 6914, p407
Genetic correlations among traits are important in evolution, as they can constrain evolutionary change or reflect past selection for combinations of traits. Constraints and integration depend on whether the correlations are caused by pleiotropy or linkage disequilibrium, but these genetic...
- Genetic diversity of Chilean and Brazilian Alstroemeria species assessed by AFLP analysis. Han, Tae-Ho; De Jeu, Marjo; Van Eck, Herman; Jacobsen, Evert // Heredity;May2000, Vol. 84 Issue 5, p564
One to three accessions of 22 Alstroemeria species, an interspecific hybrid (A. aurea � A. inodora), and single accessions of Bomarea salsilla and Leontochir ovallei were evaluated using the AFLP-marker technique to estimate the genetic diversity within the genus Alstroemeria. Three primer...
