Conservation of black poplar: insights from a DNA fingerprinting approach.

Black poplar is Great Britain’s rarest native hardwood. Here, we summarise the results of DNA fingerprinting of 811 black poplars which identified a total of 87 clones. Some clones had a restricted distribution whereas others were widespread. DNA-based clonal identification can be utilised to ensure the current genetic diversity in the British population is characterised and protected into the future.
