Genetic diversity and population structure in the Brazilian Cattleya labiata (Orchidaceae) using RAPD and ISSR markers

Abstract

Brazilian orchids are currently threatened with extinction due to habitat loss and, because of their high ornamental value, intense collecting pressure. Genetic diversity can play a key role in the survival of endangered orchid species. Here we provide the first data on genetic diversity and structure of wild populations in the genus Cattleya, in particular… (More)
