Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


During the past centuries habitats of the dioecious species Juniperus communis L. (juniper) became fragmented or disappeared. Moreover, rejuvenation in Dutch J. communis populations is minimal. As a result, J. communis has become an endangered species. A study was started into the genetic diversity and relationships of the surviving J. communis populations. The results will serve as a basis for programs to protect and restore Juniperus communis populations in the Netherlands, and for future international projects.
