Tree genetic improvement programs usually lack, in general, pedigree information. Since molecular markers can be used to estimate the level of genetic similarity between individuals, we genotyped a sample of a Portuguese Eucalyptus globulus breeding population—a reference population of 125 individuals—with 16 microsatellites (SSR). Using genotypes from the(More)
The fish assemblage in a mangrove tidal creek was studied in monthly collections between August 1998 and July 1999 in the quadrature low tide and high tide, using a fyke net of 30 m x 1.5 m and meshes of 8 and 10 mm. Simultaneously with the biological collections, temperature, salinity, pH, water transparency, and current speed data were obtained. The(More)
In this communication we present a new sol–gel route to obtain high quality BaFe12O19 thin films. X-ray analysis confirmed the crystal structure with a crystal size of 32 nm. Atomic force microscopy images determined the film thickness to be around 250 nm and a roughness factor of less than 40 nm where the grain size averaged around 150 nm. SQUID(More)
Background RAIZ is a Portuguese private non-profit research institute owned by the Pulp & Paper Portucel Soporcel Group (http://www.raiz-iifp.pt). RAIZ E. globulus genetic improvement program is managed in order to generate trees with increased economic value, through gains in forest productivity and wood properties. Molecular markers have been used for(More)
