EcolChange seminar – Sabrina Träger about landscape-scale genetics of Primula

Seminars of Department of Botany and Centre of Excellence EcolChange

Speaker: Dr. Sabrina Träger is a post-doctoral fellow at the Department of Botany, University of Tartu. Her research focuses on landscape genetics of grassland plant species.

Title of the talk: Landscape genetic analysis of Primula veris in Estonian alvar grasslands

Time: Thursday, 13. February 2020 at 14.15

Place: Tartu, Lai 40-218 (Vaga auditorium)

Summary: Fragmentation of semi-natural habitats due to management changes is one of the major threats to genetic diversity. Recent high-throughput genotyping enables the detection of numerous genetic markers distributed over the whole genome, including regions of adaptive relevance. Here, I will present results of a landscape genetic investigation of Primula veris populations in Estonian alvar grasslands to estimate the effect of habitat deterioration on the genetic diversity and adaptive potential of this valuable grassland species.
