The Thai teak forests are under pressure. They have already suffered severely from overexploitation and conversion to agricultural land. Only fragments of the original teak forests remain at present, mainly in a few protected National Parks. Teak is a tree species of major importance for plantings in South East Asia, Africa, South and Central America, and it is therefore considered to be very important to improve the conservation status for the genetic resources in Thailand. A conservation plan… Expand
Conservation of Genetic Resources of Teak (Tectona grandis) in Thailand
A conservation plan for teak in Thailand has been developed with the objective to protect this precious genetic resource for future use based on so-called genecological zonation, and it is recommended to conserve a network of conservation stands rather than a few populations. Expand
Research article
Teak (Tectona grandis L.f; Verbenaceae) is a diploid species (2n=36). It is native to the tropical deciduous forests of India, Myanmar, Thailand and Laos. Snuffed for its aesthetic physicalExpand
Diversity and genetic structure of teak (Tectona grandis L.f) in its natural range using DNA microsatellite markers
Analysis of the genetic variability and structure of 166 teak trees distributed over the whole natural area of teak showed that in the teak natural area there were four main centers of genetic variability, and the use of SSR markers for conservation of Teak forest diversity is discussed. Expand
Genetic diversity of teak (Tectona grandis L.F.) from different provenances using microsatellite markers
The objective of this work was to characterize the genetic diversity of teak genotypes used in Brazilian plantations, and Suggestions were made concerning the identification of contrasting genotypes to be used as parents in breeding programs. Expand
Teak (Tectona grandis) silviculture and research: applications for smallholders in Lao PDR
ABSTRACT Teak is an important forest plantation species in Lao PDR (Laos), that has been planted extensively by smallholders, supplying domestic industries and international markets. There have beenExpand
Genetic Structure and Conservation of Teak (Tectona Grandis) Plantations in Côte d'Ivoire, Revealed by Site Specific Recombinase (SSR)
The use of site-specific recombinase (SSR) technology using microsatellite DNA markers to investigate the level of genetic variability, distribution of genetic variation and genetic relatedness in Tectona grandis grown in Côte d'Ivoire indicates a core collection of superior genotypes with large genetic diversity is a prerequisite for conservation of teak forest diversity.

Teak genetic diversity in Ghana shows a narrow base for further breeding and a need for improved international collaboration for provenance exchange.
We evaluated the genetic diversity of teak provenances at a newly established provenance trial with 52 provenances collected from Africa, South America and Asia in Tain II Forest Reserve in CentralExpand
Nilambur- Genotypically A Unique Teak Population in India
Gene diversity and population structure were analyzed in 14 natural teak (Tectona grandis L.f.) populations in India belonging to Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Orissa using microsatelliteExpand
Discrimination of Calophyllum inophyllum L. Progenies Through ISSR Markers
The nature and degree of divergence in the base population is a pre-requisite for any improvement and conservation strategies (Gradual et al., 1999). Expand
Genetic Diversity Strategy for the Management and Use of Rubber Genetic Resources: More than 1,000 Wild and Cultivated Accessions in a 100-Genotype Core Collection
A molecular database is generated that should facilitate the management of the Hevea germplasm and its use for subsequent genetic and genomic breeding and could provide resources for forming an association panel to evaluate traits with agronomic and commercial importance. Expand


A systematic approach to the conservation of genetic resources of trees and shrubs in Denmark
The systematic approach to gene resource conservation taken in Denmark is focused on and an overview of the conservation effort required is provided, estimated as a number of conservation stands with a minimum size and a specified geographical distribution for each species. Expand
Genetic structure and mating system in teak (Tectona grandis L.f.) provenances
Genetic variability in teak has been analysed up to now quite exclusively in provenance or progeny tests using quantitative traits. Few data were available on gene diversity revealed by geneticExpand
The breeding seedling orchard in the multiple population breeding strategy
The conclusion is that this strategy is flexible, provides the potential to respond to new materials and new demands and allows the breeder freedom to be adventurous without taking unacceptable risks. Expand
Outcrossing rate of teak (Tectona grandis (L.))
The outcrossing rate of (Tectona grandis) was estimated from allozyme segregation in progenies from 15 teak trees collected near Ngao, Thailand, suggesting that teak is mainly a outcrossed species. Expand
Estimation of effective population number in a Picea abies (Karst.) seed orchard based on flower assessment
Equations for estimation of effective population numbers from relative gamete contribution are discussed, and inbreeding and variance effective population number were calculated based on the relative flowering of Picea abies. Expand
The genetic response of plant populations to a changing environment: the case for non-Mendelian processes
A whole body of population and quantitative genetic theory has been developed for plant population changes under the evolutionary forces of natural selection, mutation, migration and drift and the models have been verified in a large set of observational and experimental data. Expand
Population genetics and genetic conservation of forest trees.
Cet ouvrage presente les resultats des divers projets de recherche menes ces cinq dernieres annees en matiere de diversite et de gestion des ressources genetiques des arbres forestiers. Il donne unExpand
