Genetic Diversity of Wisconsin Populations of Cirsium pitcheri

Year: 2013
Project Description:

Recent studies of genetic diversity in two of the five known populations of Cirsium pitcheri present opposing picture of the state of affairs. One population had low diversity and high inbreeding, while the other had high diversity and low inbreeding. To determine if the low diversity is a state wide problem or restricted to the one populations, genetic diversity will be measured in additional Wisconsin populations.
