Abstract

Plant condition, analysed using fluoroscopy and morphological characteristics and, genetic structure using microsatellite markers and chloroplast DNA sequences was studied in Phragmites australis in the Gippsland coastal wetlands, SE Australia. Gene flow appeared regular and widespread between populations of P. australis in the Gippsland Lakes with some local genetic structure and no clear association with salinity. There was no genetic evidence of either salt tolerant or introduced variants.
