Data from: AFLP markers reveal high clonal diversity and extreme longevity in four arctic-alpine key species

We investigated the clonal diversity, genet size structure and genet longevity in populations of four arctic-alpine plants (Carex curvula, Dryas octopetala, Salix herbacea and Vaccinium uliginosum) in order to evaluate their persistence under past climatic oscillations and their potential resistance to future climate change. The size and number of genets was determined with molecular markers (AFLP) using a standardized sampling design in several homogenous climax populations across arctic-alpine regions in Europe. Genet age was estimated...
