By means of immunodiffusion, immunoabsorption, quantitative precipitation, and rocket-immunoelectrophoresis serosystematic relationships of Pinus sylvestris L., P. mugo Turra, P. uliginosa Neumann, and P. nigra Arnold were investigated. The high serological affinities between P. mugo and P. uliginosa demonstrate their close relationship. The antigenic properties of individuals from a hybrid swarm population of Pinus sylvestris x P. mugo allowed the establishment of characteristics, and the degree and direction of introgression in the hybrid population. Although the majority of the individuals usually resemble Pinus uliginosa, the genetic influence of both Pinus mugo, and, to a less degree, Pinus sylvestris has been detected. The Swedish Pinus sylvestris populations form two geographical groupings, northern and southern, with gene exchange detected between these two groups when they occur in the central part of Sweden.
