Genetic variability and structure of natural and domesticated populations of Caribbean pine (Pinus caribaea Morelet)

  title={Genetic variability and structure of natural and domesticated populations of Caribbean pine (Pinus caribaea Morelet)},
  author={Y.-Q. Zheng and Richard A Ennos},
  journal={Theoretical and Applied Genetics},
 Isozyme analysis of seed samples derived from natural and managed populations of the tropical pine Pinus caribaea vars ‘bahamensis’ and ‘caribaea’ was used to assess population genetic structure in its native range and to detect changes occurring during early domestication of the species. Baseline data from natural populations of the two varieties showed that populations sampled as seed are characterized by high gene diversity (mean He=0.26) and a low level of inbreeding ( mean Fis=0.15).
