A new common reed haplotype in Québec


Laura Meyerson (University of Rhode Island) and James Cronin (Louisiana State University) discovered, at La Pocatière and Rivière-du-Loup, a new non-native common reed haplotype (L1), well camouflaged among stands of common reed with the haplotype M (the invasive North american haplotype). The L1 haplotype is usually found in northern Europe, Great-Britain and Romania. We do not yet know if the L1 haplotype is as invasive as the M haplotype, but this discovery complicates the picture of the common reed invasion in Québec. Further details are available in the article published in 2013 in the journal Biological Invasions (vol. 15, p. 205-2608).
