Chloroplast DNA Variation in Shortleaf, Slash, Longleaf and Loblolly Pines

We have identified a chloroplast DNA polymorphism that separates shortleaf, slash, longleaf, and loblolly pines into three groups. Although little intraspecific variation was evident, the marker was polymorphic in slash pine. This marker may be useful for monitoring interspecific hybridization and introgression in the southern pines.
