Estimative of genetic diversity in germ-plasm of elephant grass using the Gower algorithm

This work aimed at estimating the genetic divergence among 85 accessions of elephant-grass using the Gower algorithm for the joint study of quantitative and qualitative traits. The experiment was conducted in the city of Campos dos Goytacazes, Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil, with of 85 elephant-grass genotypes. It was applied a randomized block experimental design with two replications. The exper.. Read More»

Brazil has great potential to produce bioenergy since it is located in a tropical region that receives high incidence of solar energy and presents favorable climatic conditions for such purpose. However, the use of bioenergy in the country is below its productivity potential. The aim of the current study was to select full-sib progenies and families of elephant gras.. Read More»
