Effects of heavy metal pollution on genetic variation and cytological disturbances in the Pinus sylvestris L. population



Effects of heavy metal pollution on genetic variation and cytological disturbances in the Pinus sylvestris L. population



Journal of Applied Genetics 47(2): 99-108



This isoenzymatic and cytogenetic study has shown significant differences in genetic composition between two groups of Pinus sylvestris trees: tolerant and sensitive to heavy metal pollution. Total and mean numbers of alleles and genotypes per locus were higher in the pollution-sensitive group of trees, but heterozygosity (Ho) was lower in this group.
