Genetics of local adaptation in Arabidopsisthaliana – seed dormancy as a case studyInaugural-DissertationzurErlangung des Doktorgradesder Mathematisch-Naturwissenschaftlichen Fakultätder Universität zu Kölnvorgelegt vonIlkka Kronholmaus Turku, FinnlandKöln, 2010Die vorliegende Arbeit wurde am Max-Planck-Institut für Pflanzenzüchtungsfor-schung in Köln in der Abteilung für Pflanzenzüchtung und Genetik (Prof. Dr. M.Koornneef) in der Gruppe Dr. J. de Meaux angefertigt.Berichterstatter: Prof. Dr. Maarten KoornneefProf. Dr. Thomas WiehePrüfungsvorsitzender: Prof. Dr. Siegfried RothTag der Disputation: 30.06. 2010PublicationsKronholm, I., Loudet, O. & de Meaux, J. 2010. Influence of mutation rate onestimators of genetic differentiation – lessons from Arabidopsis thaliana. BMCGenetics 11: 33IIAbstractLocal adaptation occurs when natural selection favours different phenotypes indifferent locations. Here, I studied the genetics of adaptation using local adapt-ation for seed dormancy in Arabidopsis thaliana as a model system. I asked, isthere local adaptation for seed dormancy and what environmental factors drive it?What is the genetic basis of adaptation and what is the molecular nature of adapt-ive changes? To answer these questions I conducted a population genetic study,comparing neutral markers, candidate genes and traits. Some QTL-mapping ex-periments were also performed.
