Morphological and genetic analysis of Brunnera sibirica (Boraginaceae) cenopopulation in the Southern Siberia Mountains

Abstract

Fifteen Brunnera sibirica cenopopulations have been studied. Morphological and genetic investigations reveal increasing variability and high level of correlation between morphological features (according to decreased sizes of vegetation organs) during the first years after deforestation in fir and aspen forests. High morphological and genetic variability is typical for mountain fir forests, pine–birch, and pine forests.
