      Westergaard, Kristine; Alsos, Inger Greve; Engelskjøn, Torstein; Flatberg, Kjell Ivar; Brochmann, Christian (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      The red-listed, amphi-Atlantic sedge Carex rufina is highly specialized to certain alpine snowbeds, and threatened by current changes in snow cover duration and moisture conditions. Here we address its range-wide genetic diversity, history, and conservation using amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs). Despite extensive primer testing, we detected very low overall diversity (4.1% polymorphic ...
