Population genetic structure of the endangered tropical tree species Caryocar brasiliense, based on variability at microsatellite loci
We report the population genetic structure of the endangered tropical tree species Caryocar brasiliense, based on variability at 10 microsatellite loci. Additionally, we compare heterozygosity andExpand

Functional Extinction of Birds Drives Rapid Evolutionary Changes in Seed Size
The Birds and the Seeds When species are lost from ecosystems through local extinction, the pattern of ecological interactions changes. Galetti et al. (p. 1086) show how the loss of largeExpand

Evidences for multiple maternal lineages of Caryocar brasiliense populations in the Brazilian Cerrado based on the analysis of chloroplast DNA sequences and microsatellite haplotype variation
In this work we report on the phylogeography of the endangered tree species Caryocar brasiliense based on variability in two classes of maternally inherited chloroplast DNA sequences with differentExpand

High resolution microsatellite based analysis of the mating system allows the detection of significant biparental inbreeding in Caryocar brasiliense, an endangered tropical tree species
In this work we investigate the mating system of four populations of the endangered tropical tree species Caryocar brasiliense, using genetic data from 10 microsatellite loci. Eight to 10Expand

Molecular dating and phylogenetic relationships among Teiidae (Squamata) inferred by molecular and morphological data.
We present a phylogenetic analysis of teiid lizards based on partitioned and combined analyses of 12S and 16S mitochondrial DNA sequences, and morphological and ultrastructural characters. There wereExpand
