Chloroplast population genetics reveals low levels of genetic variation and conformation to the central-marginal hypothesis in Taxus wallichiana var. mairei, an endangered conifer endemic to China.

The central-marginal hypothesis predicts that geographically peripheral populations ought to exhibit lowered genetic vary and elevated genetic differentiation than central populations due to smaller environment friendly population dimension and stronger geographical isolation. We evaluated these predictions in the endangered conifer Taxus wallichiana var. mairei. Eight plastid simple sequence repeats (cpSSRs) have been used to look at plastid
