Assessing genetic variation within populations, and genetic exchange between geographically separated populations, requires an understanding of the quantitative distribution of individual genotypes within the population. Studies of genetic variability isolates of Suillus granulatus by using randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers revealed two groups of isolates in Israel. The differentiation of populations within groups (GST) was 0.732 for ISG-I and 0.495 for ISG-II. Conspicuous genetic differentiation between the two S. granulatus groups indicates that there was no extensive gene flow. The spread of alleles within or between populations might be by repeats of short-distance spore dispersal rather than by long-distance spore dispersal.
