Genetic structure and differentiation of populations of the tetraploid species Oxytropis chankaensis (Fabaceae)

Genetic structure and differentiation of populations of the tetraploid species Oxytropis... The population genetic variation of the tetraploid species Oxytropis chankaensis Jurtz. (Fabaceae), a local endemic of the western coast of Khanka Lake (Primorye), was examined. Five populations were analyzed using 28 isozyme loci encoding 16 enzyme systems. Significant allelic heterogeneity among the populations was found for six out of twelve polymorphic loci. The heterozygosity of the samples (total sample size 294 plants) H e = 0.301 was considerable higher than the mean values in populations of endemic species (0.076). Based on the results of this study, we identified two groups of O. chankaensis populations (southern and northern), in spite of the absence of marked hiatus between them. Of special interest is the population from Przhewalski Spit, which is a natural reserve of genetic diversity of the species and the putative center of formation of the autotetraploid O. chankaensis.
