Abstract
Understanding the genetic composition and mating systems of edge populations provides
important insights into the environmental and demographic factors shaping species'
distribution ranges. We analysed samples of the mangrove Avicennia marina from Vietnam,
northern Philippines and Australia, with microsatellite markers. We compared genetic
diversity and structure in edge (Southeast Asia, and Southern Australia) and core (North
and Eastern Australia) populations, and also compared our results with previously published
