Mangrove forests are ecologically important but globally threatened intertidal plant communities. Effective mangrove conservation requires the determination of species identity, management units, and genetic structure. Here, we investigate the genetic distinctiveness and genetic structure of an iconic but yet taxonomically confusing species complex(More)
A set of 15 new microsatellite loci was developed and characterized for the widespread mangrove tree species Sonneratia alba (Lythraceae) by using next-generation sequencing. Forty-eight S. alba samples from seven populations in the Indo-West Pacific region were genotyped; all loci were polymorphic, with the number of alleles ranging from three to eight.(More)
The paleotropical woody bamboo subtribe Bambusinae has not been satisfactorily circumscribed and remains a major taxonomic problem. Genera such as Holttumochloa, Mullerochloa and Temburongia have not been confidently assigned to this subtribe. The phylogenetic relationships among genera hitherto placed in or near the Bambusinae, together with the related(More)
A set of 14 new microsatellite markers was developed for mangrove species Rhizophora mucronata (Rhizophoraceae) by using pyrosequencing. Fifty-six samples from 9 populations of R. mucronata in the Indo-West Pacific region were genotyped; all loci were polymorphic, with the number of alleles ranging from 2 to 9. The mean expected heterozygosity per locus was(More)
Human impacts have seriously damaged mangroves, and conservation of mangroves will require information on local and regional population genetic structures. Here, we report the development and polymorphism of eleven novel microsatellite markers, developed using next-generation sequencing on 56 samples of widespread mangrove species Xylocarpus granatum(More)
