- ... This is the first known large-scale molecular study of simple sequence repeats (SSR) loci based on samples from grafted trees found in the Iberian Peninsula and Canary Islands and hybrids. Interspecific hybrids resistant to ‘ink disease' (Phytophthora spp.) were obtained in France, Portugal and Spain, although difficult to distinguish by morphology. This study focuses on genetic variation using 10 ...
