Details

The aims of the study were to establish the level of genetic diversity within the endangered black poplar (Populus nigra subsp betulifolia) in Britain and Ireland, using molecular genetic methods, and to update the national survey of the species, first undertaken by Edgar Milne-Redhead between 1973 and 1988 (Milne-Redhead, 1990), in order to provide a complete national inventory.
