Presentation Title

Genetic Rescue in Fragmented Populations of Self-Incompatible Eurybia furcata

Student Presenter(s) and Advisor

Elisabeth Bacon,, Lake Forest CollegeFollow

Location

Lillard Lobby

Abstract

Fragmentation of previously intact habits can result in local extinction, genetic drift and inbreeding depression. One way to restore populations affected by habitat fragmentation is to augment populations with genetic material from nearby locations I examined the fitness consequences of genetic augmentation of a rare Aster species, Eurybia furcata.
