Genetic Diversity and Hybridization in Natural Stands of Shortleaf Pine (Pinus echinata Mill.) and Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda L.)

Ninety-three shortleaf pine and 112 loblolly pine trees from 22 seed sources were sampled from Southwide Southern Pine Seed Source Study (SSPSSS) plantings in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Mississippi. These sample trees were grown from shortleaf pine and loblolly pine seed formed in 1951 and 1952, prior to extensive forest management throughout their geographic range. Amplification fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers were developed and used to estimate genetic diversity and hybridization in these pine species.
