Unique genetic variation Once known for its green cover, Bengaluru has lost 78% of its green cover in the last two decades due to rapid urbanisation. The citys fig trees, however, have withstood the onslaught. Aiming to evaluate the loss of green cover, researchers from the Indian Institute of Science studied the genetic structure and diversity of the cluster fig tree population in Bengaluru. For the study, the researchers collected leaf samples from individual trees from different locations across the city. The study revealed that the population of cluster fig trees in Bengaluru has a fairly robust genetic structure, with no signs of inbreeding. Inbreeding results in low genetic diversity that could cause loss of fitness and increase the risk of extinction for small population of individuals. However, in the case of the cluster fig trees, the credit for maintaining healthy population probably goes to their pollinator fig wasps, which live in a special mutualism with the fig. The DNA extracted from the ...
