Nice paper about willow trees 

Regional patterns of genetic structure and environmental differentiation in willow populations (Salix humboldtiana Willd.) from Central Mexico onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pd

The willows grow along rivers in Mexico. The study asked how much the genetic structure of the populations matched the rivers the trees grew along - and boy howdy does it! Trees growing along the same river are more related than trees growing along different rivers.
