Levels of genetic diversity, inbreeding, and spatial genetic structure were investigated at different ontogenic stages for a population of Hymanaea courbaril, before and after Reduced Impact Logging (RIL) was applied, in a 546-ha plot in the Tapajós National Forest, in the Brazilian Amazon. The multilocus genotype of nine microsatellites loci was determined for 74 juveniles (dbh < 10 cm), 59 subadults (10 dbh < 50 cm), 76 adults (50 dbh < 100 cm), and 54 large adult trees (dbh 100 cm).
