Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) of nrDNA and cpDNA
(petN-psbM, trnD-T, trnL-F, trnS-G) of Juniperus grandis were
examined from throughout its range. All the sequences showed J.
californica to be quite distinct. 27 SNPs from nrDNA displayed mosaic
variation among J. grandis-occidentalis-osteosperma individuals. Four
SNPs from petN-psbM showed the Yolla Bolly plants with no differences
from J. occidentalis (Sisters, OR), supporting the terpene data that the
Yolla Bolly Mtns. putative J. grandis population is a form of J.
occidentalis. No systematic differences were found in petN-psbM
