Data from: Can clone size serve as a proxy for clone age? An exploration using microsatellite divergence in Populus tremuloides

Dilara Ally, Kermit Ritland & Sarah P. Otto
In long-lived clonal plant species, the overall size of a clone has previously been used to estimate clone age. The size of a clone, however, might be largely determined by physical or biotic interactions, obscuring the relationship between clone size and age. Here, we use the accumulation of mutations at 14 microsatellite loci to estimate clone age in trembling aspen, Populus tremuloides, from southwestern Canada. We show that the observed patterns of genetic divergence are...
