Pollen flow and dispersal patterns were investigated in a small, isolated forest fragment of the Neotropical insect pollinated tree Copaifera langsdorffii, using paternity analysis and eight microsatellite loci. We also investigated the coancestry and effective population size of progeny arrays for conservation and environmental restoration purposes.(More)
Throughout the world, large trees are increasingly rare. Cariniana legalis is the tallest tree species of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, reaching up to 60 m in height. Due to extensive deforestation of the Atlantic Forest, remnant C. legalis populations are small and spatially isolated, requiring the development of strategies for their conservation. For in(More)
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Microsatellite primers were developed for the tree species Genipa americana (Rubiaceae) for further population genetic studies. • METHODS AND RESULTS We identified 144 clones containing 65 repeat motifs from a genomic library enriched for (CT)8 and (GT)8 motifs. Primer pairs were developed for 32 microsatellite loci and(More)
