The palaeoendemic conifer Pherosphaera hookeriana (Podocarpaceae) exhibits high genetic diversity despite Quaternary range contraction and post glacial bottlenecking

James Worth, James Marthick, Peter Harrison, Gregory Jordan & Shota Sakaguchi
Glacial relict plants are often endangered because extant populations can be small, geographically isolated and persist in suboptimal environments, leading to increased clonality and reduced genetic diversity putting their survival at further risk. This study examines how restriction to interglacial refugia has impacted the genetic diversity and structure of the threatened Tasmanian palaeoendemic, Pherosphaera hookeriana W. Archer bis. This species is a poorly dispersed, dioecious conifer that, having once been a major component of Last...
