Nine microsatellite loci for genetic analysis of three populations of the tropical tree Eugenia uniflora L. (pitanga or Brazilian cherry) from fragments of semideciduous forest were developed. We used the technique of building a (GA) n and (CA) n microsatellite-enriched library by capture with streptavidin-coated magnetic beads. We assessed the polymorphism(More)
Metrodorea nigra (Rutaceae) is an endemic Brazilian tree of great ecological importance, frequently found in the submontane regions of ombrophilous dense and semideciduous forests. This tree is useful for reforesting degraded areas and the wood can be employed in construction. We developed 12 microsatellite markers from a genomic library enriched for(More)
In this study, a set of nuclear microsatellite markers were transferred and characterized from two Myrtaceae sub-families to four neotropical Eugenia fruit tree species (E. uniflora L., E. pyriformis Cambess., E. brasiliensis Lam. and E. francavilleana O. Berg), which are neglected and underutilized foods of great ecological and potential economic value(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY This study was designed to develop and characterize a preliminary set of nuclear microsatellite markers for Aspidosperma polyneuron, an endangered tropical tree species. METHODS AND RESULTS Leaf samples were collected from a group of mature A. polyneuron trees in a large area along the Pardo and Mogi-Guaçu river basins in São Paulo(More)
Background The neotropical tree species Aspidosperma polyneuron and Cariniana estrellensis, known as peroba-rosa and jequitibá-branco respectively, are characteristic of late secondary semideciduous Atlantic forest in submontane formation. Their wood is widely used for carpentry and construction. Increasing logging, intensive agriculture and urban expansion(More)
Background Aspidosperma polyneuron (Apocynaceae), commonly known as peroba-rosa, is a native and perennial species characteristic of semideciduous forest in submontane formation of Atlantic rain forest [1]. This species is recommended for ecosystems recovery and restoration of riparian forests in areas without flooding. But, the crescent logging,(More)
