Summary: We would like to investigate the genetic relationship of soil seeds and surface plants across several life history stages and populations of different species. Due to the nearly complete absence of empirical data bearing on this question, this is necessarily an exploratory study that simply asks whether there are genetic differences between soil seeds and life history stages of surface plants at scales larger than a single population. To investigate this question, we would like to compare the genetic relationship of several, ecologically different species soil seeds and surface plants among five ecologically diverse populations across the Czech Repubic.
