Genetic resource impacts of habitat loss and degradation; reconciling empirical evidence and predicted theory for neotropical trees
The theoretical impacts of anthropogenic habitat degradation on genetic resources have been well articulated. Here we use a simulation approach to assess the magnitude of expected genetic change, andExpand

Increased pollen flow counteracts fragmentation in a tropical dry forest: An example from Swietenia humilis Zuccarini
Habitat destruction and the resultant fragmentation of the remaining forest are a common phenomenon in the tropics. Most investigations emphasize the potential dangers of fragmentation in isolatingExpand

Genetic variation within a fragmented population of Swietenia humilis Zucc.
With large tracts of once continuous forest now modified by human use to leave reduced and highly fragmented stands of trees, the determination of the genetic consequences of forest fragmentation isExpand

Genetic considerations in ecosystem restoration using native tree species
Rehabilitation and restoration of forest ecosystems are in growing demand to tackle climate change, biodiversity loss and desertification—major environmental problems of our time. Interest inExpand

Population genetics of Cordia alliodora (Boraginaceae), a neotropical tree. 3. Gene flow, neighborhood, and population substructure
The utility of a) rare allozyme markers and b) paternity exclusion in estimating gene dispersal in tropical forest trees was demonstrated for a population of Cordia alliodora (R. & P.) Oken in CostaExpand

Genome sequence and genetic diversity of European ash trees
Ash trees (genus Fraxinus, family Oleaceae) are widespread throughout the Northern Hemisphere, but are being devastated in Europe by the fungus Hymenoscyphus fraxineus, causing ash dieback, and inExpand

Ecology provides a pragmatic solution to the maintenance of genetic diversity in sustainably managed tropical rain forests
Abstract An important aspect of the sustainable management of tropical rain forests is the maintenance of genetic diversity within populations of commercial tree species. Logging may reduce geneticExpand

Population genetics of Cordia alliodora (Boraginaceae), a neotropical tree. 1. Genetic variation in natural populations
We provide an estimate of genetic differentiation within and among 11 populations of Cordia alliodora, an economically important timber tree. Cordia alliodora is a widespread species that isExpand

Population genetics of Cordia alliodora (Boraginaceae), a neotropical tree. 2. Mating system
A multilocus mixed mating model was used to evaluate the mating system of a natural population of Cordia alliodora (Boraginaceae), a neotropical tree. The population was highly outcrossed (tin =Expand
