Analysis of Population Structure from Allozyme Frequencies

Selection strategies for tree improvement depend on population structure which will probably vary among species and even among regions within a species' range. Analysis of population structure using allozyme information can help in determining improvement strategy. Population structure can be described in terms of inbreeding, the grouping of genotypes within stands, and genetic distances among stands.
