Abstract: 
Forty-eight European beech populations from the territory of France have been analyzed using twelve isozyme loci. Practically in all loci the relation was found between allelic frequencies and geographical situation (altitude, longitude) and/or climatic conditions of the population site. The populations from the north of France are significantly different from those orginating from Pyrenees, as revealed by the spatial autocorrelation analysis based on genetic distances. The populations from Aquitaine, Central Massive and Alps occupy an intermediate position between these regions. The gene diversity as well as heterozygosity was found to be the highest in the north of France and it decreases towards the south.
