DIVERSITY ANALYSIS AND CONSERVATION OF CORYDALIS PUMILA (HOST) RCHB. - AN ENDANGERED SPECIES IN POLAND

J.T. Puchalski
Corydalis pumila (Host) Rchb. is a very rare species of Polish flora occurring on limited number of sites in leafy or mixed wet forest communities and therefore included to the "Red List" of endangered plant species in Poland. The studies carried on natural populations of Corydalis pumila indicated only 10 sites of that species in whole Poland. In some sites Corydalis pumila occupied the same area together with other Corydalis species: C. intermedia (L.) Mérat and C. solida (L.) Swartz. The genetic diversity was analysed by means of isozyme markers within and among all Corydalis pumila populations and in the populations of accompanying Corydalis species. It was showed that diversity within Corydalis pumila populations was different in particular sites and some populations were monomorphic for 8 enzyme systems, but some were highly polymorphic. These studies showed also that isozyme patterns of Corydalis pumila were specific and distinct from other Corydalis species from Polish lowlands: C. intermedia and C. solida and especially different from C. bulbosa.
