Lippia origanoides is a species of interest and promising for the quality and potential industrial use of its essential oils. Using AFLPs, we reliably identified four populations at contrasting altitudes (FST = 0.18, P-value < 0.0000) in the canyon of the Chicamocha River. The differences in altitude among the basins seem to be relevant in determining the genetic structure of this species.
