    Description

    Isozymes of female gametophyte tissue were analyzed for allelic variation in knobcone, lodgepole, loblolly, Jeffrey, and sugar pines and in Douglas-fir. Linkage was studied in the five pines. The average number of alleles and average herozygosity per enzyme locus were estimated. Knobcone pine ranked lowest among the six species in number of alleles and average heterozygosity; loblolly pine and Douglas-fir ranked highest. Numerous linkages were identified, and one chromosome segment contained between one-fourth and one-third of all loci examined. Linked loci had a consistent gene order in the different pine species. Linkage relationships support the concept that similar isozymes represent the same loci in each pine species. The consistency with which loci map in the same order and with similar map distances in species from different subsections of the genus, further suggests that evolution of the pines is not associated with major chromosome rearrangements.
