37 Included Data Sets
The content of this book includes several data sets that come with the
popgraph libraries. Here is a brief overview of those data sets with references to the manuscripts from which they were analyzed.
37.1 The Sonoran desert bark beetle, Araptus attenuata
Arapatus attenuatus is a bark beetle endemic to the Sonoran desert. It is known only from the senescing stems of the desert plant, Euphorbia lomelii (syn Pedilanthus macrocarpus). Samples for this data set were collected from 39 populations throughout the species range.
37.1.1 Nuclear Markers
The markers in the
arapat data set consist of eight polymorphic and codominant nuclear markers.
library(gstudio) data(arapat) column_class( arapat, "locus")
##  "LTRS" "WNT" "EN" "EF" "ZMP" "AML" "ATPS" "MP20"
These markers span a range of allelic diversity and richness.
37.1.2 Methylation Markers
In addition to codominant nuclear markers, an msAFLP analysis was performed on the major clade and paired sequence and \(C_pG\) methylation markers were derived.
37.2 The Flowering Dogwood Cornus florida
Flowering dogwood is an ubiquitous feature of eastern north american forests.
The data set contains five microsatellite loci.

##  "Cf.G8" "Cf.H18" "Cf.N5" "Cf.N10" "Cf.O5"
of roughly equal genetic diversity.
