Interspecific and Intraspecific Pollination Patterns of Valley Oak, Quercus Lobata, in a Mixed Stand in Coastal Central California
(The University of Chicago Press, 2011)
Pollination patterns within Quercus lobata and interspecific hybridization between Q. lobata and Quercus douglasii were studied in a coastal central California mixed woodland. We first identified hybrids by means of ...
Pollen-Mediated Gene Flow in Isolated and Continuous Stands of Bur Oak, Quercus Macrocarpa (Fagaceae)
(Botanical Society of America, 2010-12)
Premise of the study: Pollination patterns determine the reproductive neighborhood size of plants, the connectivity of populations, and the impacts of habitat fragmentation. We characterized pollination in three populations ...
Plant Parentage, Pollination, and Dispersal: How DNA microsatellites have altered the landscape
(Taylor & Francis, 2010-05)
DNA microsatellites provide plant ecologists with molecular markers precise enough to assign parentage to seeds and seedlings. This allows the exact distance and trajectory of successful pollen to be traced to characterize ...
