ThesisA candidate gene approach to the detection of edaphically-based adaptive divergence between Pinus contorta ssp. contorta and P. contorta ssp. bolanderiShahi, HurshbirEdaphic conditions have been documented as an important factor in the adaptive evolution of plant species. The soils in Mendocino County, California are heavily podzolized yet they sustain dwarf, endemic conifers such as Pinus contorta ssp. bolanderi. . . .
