Four Salvia officinalis L. populations were examined for the extent of genetic variability and compared with S. judaica Boiss., by extracting genomic DNA and generating a random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) marker profile. Hierarchical cluster analysis separated the common sage populations into two groups. The two Hungarian S. officinalis L. samples were tightly clustered (61% dissimilarity). The Greek and Romanian populations also clustered together, and were genetically more distinct from the Hungarian samples (77% dissimilarity). The S. officinalis L. group, including all populations, was separated from S. judaica Boiss. with the greatest genetic distance (83% dissimilarity).
