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


, : 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

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.
