AbstractThe main Korean mountain range that stretches from north to south (the Baekdudaegan) has been suggested to harbor an important glacial refugium for boreal and temperate plant species. Under this scenario, we expect high levels of within-population genetic variation and low or moderate degree of among-population differentiation within these species. To test this hypothesis, we examined clonal diversity and levels of allozyme diversity in the boreal Iris odaesanensis and in its temperate congener Iris rossii. In addition, we compiled data on boreal and temperate species whose distribution in the Korean Peninsula is mostly centered in the Baekdudaegan to determine if there is a common pattern. We found lower clonal diversity in I. odaesanensis compared to I. rossii. Both studied species maintained high levels of genetic variation as well as a moderate genetic differentiation (%P = 52.5 and 47.5, A = 1.70 and 1.58, H e = 0.158 and 0.150, and F ST = 0.196 and 0.189 for I. odaesanensis and I. rossii, respectively), in line with what occurs for the species distributed on the Baekdudaegan (n = 14, %P = 46.7, A = 1.73, H e = 0.161, and F ST = 0.190). This study strongly suggests that the Baekdudaegan may have acted as a refugium for boreal and temperate species, in a similar way to the southern Appalachians in the eastern United States.
