ABSTRACT
Texas snowbells (Styrax platanifolius var. texanus) is one of
the most threatened native Texas plants. A preliminary study using
DNA fingerprinting (RAPDs) was performed on plants from three
natural populations. Almost no genetic variation was found, either
within or between these three populations. Implications for
conservation are discussed. Phytologia 93(2):198-202 (August 1, 2011)
KEY WORDS: Styrax platanifolius var. texanus, Texas snowbells,
RAPDs, conservation.
