dc.description.abstract The population structure of a lichen, Thamnolia subuliformis and a moss, Dicranum elongatum, was examined in northeastern regions of Wapusk National Park. With the use of microsatellite molecular markers, it was reported that the sterile lichen had a level of variation similar to that of a sexually reproducing species. The variation reported for the moss, where sporophytes were not encountered, supported subdivided populations. It was concluded that these species have the genetic resources necessary to adapt to changing environmental conditions. en
