Project Description:

This project explores for the first time the genetic variation and relationship of two Michigan native hazelnut species Corylus americana and C. cornuta using DNA sequence data of chloroplasts. We aim at testing whether there was hybridization and introgression between the two species leading to a high similarity of plastid genomes between them relative to other species of Corylus.
