Abstract

DNA fingerprinting has proved useful for the analysis of genotypic distribution and estimation of genetic relatedness in apomictic plant groups like Rubus, Amelanchier, Hieracium and Taraxacum. Speciation through interspecific hybridization has been demonstrated in one case involving apomictic Rubus species. The application of molecular markers to progeny derived from experimental cross-pollinations has yielded information on levels of apomixis as well as on its inheritance and regulation in e.g. Rubus, Poa, Pennisetum and Tripsacum.
