As a model species, Populus offers opportunities to study processes unique to woody, perennial species, such as seasonal senescence, dormancy and wood production. As a long-lived species, it is also possible that different adaptive survival strategies have been selected for in comparison to annual species. To date, a number of miRNAs have been shown to be differentially expressed or induced in response to abiotic stress and to be involved in processes such as wood development. Although Populus has not yet been extensively profiled for short RNAs, the available data has been used to identify a number of phased loci and to characterise association of short RNA and repetitive elements in the genome. There appears to be a hotspot of sRNA production on chromosome 19, which contains the proposed sex-determining locus.
