DescriptionPatterns of genetic variation were studied in three populations of ponderosa pine in Colorado by using electrophoretically variable protein loci. Significant genetic differences were found between separate clusters of trees and between age classes within populations. In addition, data indicate that differential cone production and differential animal damage have genetic components. These results suggest that many diverse phenomena can affect allele frequencies within populations and may contribute to the high levels of genetic variability detected within populations of this species.
