- ... • Premise of the study: Archaeological and genetic analyses of seed-propagated annual crops have greatly advanced our understanding of plant domestication and evolution. Comparatively little is known about perennial plant domestication, a relevant topic for understanding how genes and genomes evolve in long-lived species, and how perennials respond to selection pressures operating on a relatively ...

- ... A structured collection of 80 seedling pecan trees [Carya illinoinensis (Wangenh.) K. Koch], representing 19 putatively native pecan populations across the species range, was evaluated at three plastid and 14 nuclear microsatellite (simple sequence repeat, SSR) loci. Data were analyzed using a priori population designations and also within a Bayesian framework, in which individuals were assigned t ...
