Data from: Using seedling and pericarp tissues to determine maternal parentage of dispersed valley oak recruits

Peter E. Smouse, Victoria L. Sork, Douglas G. Scofield & Delphine Grivet
The spatial pattern of established seedlings yields valuable information about variation in fecundity, dispersal, and spatial structure of distributed recruits, but separating maternal and paternal contributions in monoecious species has been hampered by the “2 parent” problem. It is now possible to determine the maternal parentage of established recruits with genetic assay of maternally derived tissues of the seed or fruit, but the DNA of weathered maternal tissues often yields unreliable genotypes, reducing the practical...
