Population genetic structure of wild-growing ginseng (Planax ginseng C.A. Meyer) assessed using AFLP markers

Population genetic structure of wild-growing ginseng (Planax ginseng C.A. Meyer) assessed using... Genetic variability in ten populations of wild-growing ginseng was assessed using AFLP markers with the application of fragment analysis on a genetic analyzer. The variation indices were high in the populations (P = 55.68%, H S = 0.1891) and for the species (P = 99.65%; H S = 0.2857). Considerable and statistically significant population differentiation was demonstrated (θB = 0.363; Bayesian approach, “full model”; F ST = 0.36, AMOVA). The results of AMOVA and Bayesian analysis indicate that 64.46% of variability is found within the populations. Mantel test showed no correlation between the genetic and geographic distances among the populations (r = −0.174; p = 0.817). Hierarchical AMOVA and analysis of genetic relationships based on Euclidean distances (NJ, PCoA, and MST) identified two divergent population groups of ginseng. Low gene flow between these groups (N m = 0.4) suggests their demographic independence. In accordance to the concept of evolutionary significant units (ESU), these population groups, in terms of the strategy and tactics for conservation and management of natural resources, should be treated as management units (MUs). The MS tree topology suggests recolonization of southern Sikhote-Alin by ginseng along two directions, from south and west. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals
