The contact zone between two migration routes of silver fir, Abies alba (Pinaceae), revealed by allozyme studies

Plant Systematics and Evolution 206(1/4): 259-272
The contact zone between two migration routes of silver fir, Abies alba (Pinaceae), revealed by allozyme studies
Enzyme data were obtained from 35 populations or regional samples of A. alba from Austria and Bavaria. Genetic analysis revealed a clear differentiation between the western and the north/eastern populations. A narrow transition zone (the river valleys of Salzach and Traun) with genetically intermediate populations connected these 2 regions. This west-east differentiation was interpreted as the result of distinct migration routes from a glacial refuge in Central Italy.
