Genetic Diversity in Natural Populations of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. from Karelia

Genetic Diversity in Natural Populations of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. from Karelia The genetic structure of ten natural populations of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. at eight isozyme loci was studied. The populations were located in the northern part of the species range, 200 km from the north to the south along the Onega Lake coast in Karelia. Considerable genetic diversity (P 99% = 43.7, H obs = 0.003) was revealed that is not typical of populations of self-pollinating plant species. A direct correlation between the proportion of polymorphic loci and geographical latitude was shown (r = 0.68; P < 0.05). It is suggested that a high polymorphism level in Karelian Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) populations increasing from the south to the north is due to extreme environmental conditions in the northern part of the species range. The distribution of genetic diversity within and between populations is typical of self-pollinating species: the larger part of the total diversity resides among populations (G ST = 0.583).
