Population Processes at Multiple Spatial Scales Maintain Diversity and Adaptation in the Linum marginale - Melampsora lini Association

Figure 4

Diversity in resistance of L. marginale and infectivity of M. lini in Mountains and Plains regions.

(A) Relative phenotype diversity was calculated as the ratio of phenotypes found per population over the number of individuals tested. A value of 1 would mean that all individuals tested were different in the assay. (B) The total number of phenotypes in each region calculated for both host and pathogen. (C) The relative frequency in the region of different phenotypes plotted for host and pathogen in Mountains vs Plains. Phenotypes occurring at a frequency of less than 2% were characterized as “rare” and grouped.
