Allozyme variation in natural populations of deodar (Cedrus deodara)

Principal Investigator: Dr. Rajesh Sharma
Duration: 2005-2009

Genetic variability in fifteen populations of Cedrus deodara studied through isozyme analysis revealed variation in the populations for allelic diversity and differentiation, heterozygosity and genetic distances. As these populations originate from different geographical areas and occupy different geological formations, yet the allozymic variation showed tendencies of grouping based on the values shown by these populations for population parameters and was grouped into three clusters.
