Data from: Vertical and horizontal photobiont transmission within populations of a lichen symbiosis

Francesco Dal Grande, Ivo Widmer, Helene H. Wagner & Christoph Scheidegger
Lichens are widespread symbioses and play important roles in many terrestrial ecosystems. The genetic structure of lichens is the result of the association between fungal and algal populations constituting the lichen thallus. Using eight fungus- and seven alga-specific highly variable microsatellite markers on within-population spatial genetic data from 62 replicate populations across Europe, North America, Asia and Africa, we investigated the contributions of vertical and horizontal transmission of the photobiont to the genetic structure of...
