Abstract

Our results are inconsistent with the idea that the genotypic diversity of trembling aspen is related to the intensity of disturbance within the boreal forest. It appears that species‐specific disturbance responses and post‐fire recruitment mechanisms are more important than dominant ecological factors, such as climate and fire regimes, in shaping distribution‐wide patterns of neutral genetic variation and clonal structure.
