Genetic diversity among Hymenaea courbaril L. genotypes naturally occurring in the north of Mato Grosso State, Brazil

Hymenaea courbaril L. is a tropical tree species with economic and medicinal potential largely used in programs for the recovery of degraded areas. The use of molecular markers in genetic studies can help in the definition of forest restoration strategies. This study was conducted to analyze the genetic diversity among H. courbaril (‘jatobá’) geno.. Read More»

Effect of fragmentation on the natural genetic diversity of Theobroma speciosum Willd. ex Spreng. populations

    T.L. Varella, A.A.B. Rossi, J.F.E. Dardengo, G.F. Silveira, M.D.A. Souza and M.L.S. Carvalho

t fragmentation reduces the effective size of natural populations, isolates individuals in the landscape, and, consequently, changes species’ mating systems by increasing the degree of relatedness between individuals and inbreeding. Investigating the impact of habitat degradation on forest fragments helps to assess the genetic and ecological consequences of th.. Read More»

Population structure and genetic diversity in natural populations of Theobroma speciosum Willd. Ex Spreng (Malvaceae)

    L.D. Giustina, L.N. Luz, F.S. Vieira, F.S. Rossi, C.R.A. Soares-Lopes, T.N.S. Pereira and A.A.B. Rossi

The genus Theobroma found in the Amazon region is composed of 22 species, including Theobroma speciosum, better known as cacauí. These species are constantly threatened by forest fragmentation caused by human activities and require conservation strategies and management aimed at preserving them in their natural environments. The main objective of this study w.. Read More»

Genetic diversity of Cajazeira (Spondias mombin L.) in three geographic regions

    B.M. Silva, A.A.B. Rossi, A.V. Tiago, K.F.M. Schmitt, J.F.E. Dardengo and S.A.M. Souza

Cajazeira (Spondias mombin L.), of the family Anacardiaceae, is a species of fruit tree found in the Amazon region with fruits that have excellent prospects for commercial use. We aimed to evaluate the genetic diversity within and among natural populations of S. mombin, with natural occurrence in northern Mato Grosso State, by using inter-simple sequence repeat (ISS..

Genetic structure of natural populations of Theobroma in the Juruena National Park, Mato Grosso State, Brazil

    B.M. Silva, A.A.B. Rossi, J.F.E. Dardengo, C.R. Silva, I.V. Silva, M.L. Silva and C.J. Silva

Several species within the genus Theobroma have particularly high economic value, including T. cacao and T. grandiflorum. Other species in this genus, such as T. speciosum and T. subincanum, have potential value for use in the conservation of genetic diversity in breeding programs. These latter species could also be domesticated or improved to produce commercial products. Using 13 simple sequen.. Read More»

The genetic diversity and population structure of Genipa americana L. in Northern Mato Grosso, Brazil

Genipa americana L. (Rubiaceae) is an Amazon region-natural species, which may be subject to inbreeding, since it grows in fragmented environments. The aim of the current study is to assess the genetic diversity and population structure of three G. americana populations naturally grown in Northern Mato Grosso State using SSR markers. The DNA extraction was performed.. Read More»

Genetic diversity in natural populations of Theobroma subincanum Mart. in the Brazilian Amazon

    L.H. Rivas1, L.D. Giustina1, L.N. Luz2, I.V. Karsburg1, T.N.S. Pereira2 and A.A.B. Rossi1

The genus Theobroma, recently reclassified in the family Malvaceae, comprises some species with high economic potential, including the cupuí, Theobroma subincanum Mart., which has not yet been domesticated, and whose genetics and population structure are mostly unknown. This study aimed to assess the population structure and genetic diversity in natural populations of T. subincanum Mart... Read More»

    A.V. Tiago, A.A.B. Rossi, P.V. Tiago, A.A. Carpejani, B.M. Silva, E.S.S. Hoogerheide and O.M. Yamashita

Brazil is considered one of the domestication centers of cassava (Manihot esculenta), containing a large part of the biological diversity and traditional knowledge of the species. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the genetic diversity of cassava landraces grown by farmers in the north of Mato Grosso State, Brazil, using inter simple sequence repeat (ISSR..

Diversity and genetic structure of the native Brazil nut tree (Bertholletia excelsa Bonpl.) population

The present study was carried out in a native Brazil nut tree population (Bertholletia excelsa Bonpl., Lecythidaceae) to assess its genetic diversity and structure. Ten microsatellite markers were used to genotype 198 adult trees (B. excelsa). The population presented high genetic diversity and inbreeding absence rates. The empirical Bayesian method showed three dis.. Read More»
