The conservation of Populus nigra L. and gene flow with cultivated poplars in Europe


, : The conservation of Populus nigra L. and gene flow with cultivated poplars in Europe. Forest Genetics 2(3): 135-144

Populus nigra can be considered on the verge of extinction in a large part of western Europe, as its natural habitat is being gradually reduced by human activity, and the gene pool is threatened by the large-scale presence of cultivated hybrids as well as the ornamental cultivar 'Lombardy poplar' (P. nigra var. italica), which spontaneously hybridize with P. nigra.

The stands could be ranked as superior, medium-superior and medium.
