Abstract
Understanding site criteria for the preservation of genetic variability in American wild rice (Zizania palustris) is necessary if healthy wild rice populations are to remain viable. Leaf samples were collected on a single day, from a wild-grown stand of approximately 45 acres location in northwestern Wisconsin. Characteristics of each plant and site criteria were recorded at the time of collection. Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphisms (RFLP) was used to assess genetic variation.
Description
Color poster with text describing research conducted by Diana Downes, advised by Dr. Kim Mogen (University of Wisconsin-River Falls) that used DNA fragments to measure the genetic variability of a natural stand of wild rice in northwestern Wisconsin.
