Seed and pollen dispersal and fine-scale spatial genetic structure of a threatened tree species: Pericopsis elata (HARMS) Meeuwen (Fabaceae)
TLDR
This study highlights that (1) seed sources must be diversified for plantation or population reinforcement to limit consanguinity, and (2) the legal minimum cutting diameter in DRC should be increased to maintain enough post-logging reproductive potential.
Fine-scale spatial genetic structure analysis in two Argentine populations of Prosopis alba (Mimosoideae) with different levels of ecological disturbance
TLDR
Compared fine-scale SGS between two populations of Prosopis alba: Fernandez-Forres (FF) and Campo Duran (CD), based on the variation of 12 SSR markers, highly significant genetic differentiation was detected with virtually no admixture between populations.
Spatially limited clonality and pollen and seed dispersal in a characteristic climber of Central African rain forests: Haumania danckelmaniana (Marantaceae)
TLDR
Assessing breeding system and spatial extent of clonality and gene dispersal in Haumania danckelmaniana (Marantaceae), a common climber in the tropical rain forests from western Central Africa, hypothesize for climbers an intermediate genetic structure between herbs and trees.
Janzen-Connell effects shape gene flow patterns and realized fitness in the tropical dioecious tree Spondias purpurea (ANACARDIACEAE)
TLDR
Effective and realized gene flow indicate a population recruitment curve indicating Janzen-Connell effects and suggesting fitness advantages for long-distance pollen and seed dispersal events.
Fine-scale spatial genetic structure in the frankincense tree Boswellia papyrifera (Del.) Hochst. and implications for conservation
TLDR
The high heterozygosity, the low fixation index and the low Sp values found in this study are consistent with outcrossing as the (predominant) mating system in B. papyrifera, and it is suggested that seed collection for ex situ conservation and reforestation programmes of the species should use trees separated by distances but preferably 150 m to limit genetic relatedness among seeds from different trees.
Staying close: short local dispersal distances on a managed forest of two Patagonian Nothofagus species
TLDR
The results indicated restricted gene flow, no selfing and significant seed and pollen immigration from trees located outside the studied plot but in the close surrounding area, which suggests that the recent history of logging within the study area has not significantly influenced on patterns of gene flow.
Distinctions in Fine-Scale Spatial Genetic Structure Between Growth Stages of Picea jezoensis Carr.
TLDR
It is indicated that inbreeding depression, stochastic loss, or eradication of establishment sites by local disturbances alone could not explain the lack of FSGS among mature-stage trees, and it is possible that the colonization history of mature trees present on the study site might differ from that of the current offspring.
Spatial genetic structure in seed stands of Pinus lumholtzii B.L. Rob. & Fernald in Durango, Mexico
TLDR
The goal of this research was to use amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers to identify potential differences in spatial genetic structure within and between five P. lumholtzii seed stands, providing strong support for the theory of isolation by distance that predicts the expected pattern of SGS at drift–dispersal equilibrium.
Demographic history and spatial genetic structure in a remnant population of the subtropical tree Anadenanthera colubrina var. cebil (Griseb.) Altschul (Fabaceae)
TLDR
Patterns of inbreeding and relatedness suggest a mixed mating system, high genetic diversity, and moderate spatial genetic structure suggest long-term population viability, which was stronger in saplings than in adults.
Genetic diversity of populations of the dioecious Myrsine coriacea (Primulaceae) in the Atlantic Forest
TLDR
It is suggested that obligatory cross-pollination and dispersal by birds may be important mechanisms for the maintenance of genetic diversity in natural populations of M. coriacea.

Spatial Scales of Pollen and Seed-Mediated Gene Flow in Tropical Rain Forest Trees
TLDR
Reviewing studies of gene flow and population genetic structure in tropical rain forest trees and places them in ecological and biogeographic context finds significantly higher genetic differentiation in tropical trees.
Demographic spatial genetic structure of the Neotropical tree, Jacaranda copaia
TLDR
The pattern of spatial genetic transitions in Jacaranda is consistent with overlapping related generations and strong but infrequent periods of high recruitment, followed by long periods of population decline.

TLDR
Strong evidence is found for fine‐scale genetically based differentiation and local adaptation in adaptive traits such as plant size, flowering phenology, fecundity, and mortality in bush lupine life‐history traits.
Fine‐scale genetic structure and gene dispersal inferences in 10 Neotropical tree species
TLDR
It is suggested that limited seed dispersal could indirectly limit effective pollen dispersal by creating higher local tree densities, thereby increasing the positive correlation between pollen and seed disperseal distances.
Spatial genetic structure of Simarouba amara Aubl. (Simaroubaceae), a dioecious, animal-dispersed Neotropical tree, on Barro Colorado Island, Panama
TLDR
The relatively weak genetic structure of S. amara, in comparison to other recent studies, may be explained by pollen and seed dispersal over the 50 ha plot, overlapping seed shadows, and postrecruitment mortality.
GENETIC STRUCTURE OF AGE CLASSES IN CAMELLIA JAPONICA (THEACEAE)
TLDR
Results suggest that self‐thinning changes the spatial relationships of individuals, and thus genotypes, and that studies of spatial genetic structure focusing on limited numbers of generations may not be sufficient to reveal the entire picture of genetic structure in populations with overlapping generations.
Seed dispersal patterns produced by white‐faced monkeys: implications for the dispersal limitation of neotropical tree species
TLDR
Long-distance dispersal by Cebus resulted in substantial movement of seeds in and out of the 50 ha plot, and suggests that inverse modelling procedures to estimate dispersal functions from trap data may not adequately describe dispersal patterns generated by this primate.
Genetic evidence of frequent long-distance recruitment in a vertebrate-dispersed tree.
TLDR
Effective dispersal in a natural population of the vertebrate-dispersed Neotropical tree, Simarouba amara (Simaroubaceae) is measured by comparing the distances between maternal parents and their offspring and comparing gene movement via seed and pollen in the 50 ha plot of the Barro Colorado Island forest, Central Panama.
ECOLOGICAL CORRELATES OF REPRODUCTIVE TRAITS OF MEXICAN RAIN FOREST TREES
TLDR
Flower and fruit morphological traits, sexual systems, and tree guilds are related in a comprehensive way, and a flow model based on data from this study is presented.
Spatial structure and genetic diversity of two tropical tree species with contrasting breeding systems and different ploidy levels
TLDR
The spatial distribution pattern analyses of both species showed significant levels of aggregation at small and medium but random distribution at the big diameter‐class, which supports the fact that the species is pollinated by weak fliers, mainly of Thrips and Megalurothrips in the lowland dipterocarp forest.
