DescriptionRecent reviews have suggested that tree species are the most variable of organisms, as measured by proportion of polymorphic loci or average heterozygosity (Hamrick, 1979; Hamrick et al., 1979). Average heterozygosity is greater than 0.30 for several conifers. By contrast, annual herbaceous species have a mean heterozygosity of 0.13 (Hamrick et al., 1979).
