Our overall estimates were lower than those reported for other rare perennials analyzed using allozymes (Rutidosis leptorrhynchoides, [F.sub.ST] = 0.17), nuclear microsatellites (Grevillea macleayana, [F.sub.ST] = 0.218, and Gymnadenia odoratissima, [F.sub.ST] = 0.19), and ISSRs (Physaria bellii, [F.sub.ST] = 0.24) found on fragmented landscapes (Young, Brown, and Zich, 1999; England et al., 2002; Gustafsson and Sjogren-Gulve, 2002; Kothera, Richards and Carney, 2007).
