The genus Dryobalanops Gaertn. f. is a small but important genus that contains seven species and is found in the Southeast Asian tropical rain forests. Seven polymorphic nuclear microsatellite markers were analyzed in 46 natural populations of six extant Dryobalanops species (N = 700 individuals) covering the distribution range in Western Malesia. The mean gene diversity at the species level ranged from 0.392 in D. rappa to 0.635 in D. aromatica. The FST value ranged from 0.156 in D. keithii to…

Findings indicated that genetic conservation of Sumatran camphor might be performed in situ in combination with enrichment planting using locally propagated sources.

Knowing the vast variety of species and their potential uses in conventional agroforestry systems is critical to increasing tropical area efficiency and ensuring the sustainability of the natural
Use of molecular markers in the conservation management of tropical trees
Advances in the development and application of molecular markers in conservation planning, landscape restoration and DNA forensics of tropical tree species are reviewed, and future directions are discussed.


Genetic variation in nine Shorea species (Dipterocarpaceae) in Indonesia revealed by AFLPs
The population of rare species S. blumutensis possessed the highest genetic diversity suggesting that geographically restricted species can have levels of genetic variation comparable to closely related widespread common congeners, and AFLP markers proved appropriate for phylogenetic studies of Shorea species.
Genetic diversity, population structure and conservation implication of the endemic Sumatran lowland dipterocarp tree species (Shorea javanica)
The results show genetic variation in S. javanica is extremely low at both population and species levels, and it is suggested that conservation efforts should focus on promoting connectivity and augmenting population size across the species range.
Comparative Study of Seed Germination and Genetic Variation of Rare Endemic Rhinanthus osiliensis and Related Widespread Congener R. rumelicus (Orobanchaceae)
The low genetic differentiation between R. osiliensis and R. rumelicus confirmed their close affinity and the short evolutionary period of both taxa after the postglacial colonization, suggesting this species may face a loss of genetic variation in the future.
Cross-species amplification of cassava (Manihot esculenta) (Euphorbiaceae) microsatellites: allelic polymorphism and degree of relationship.
Previous work with amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers and this microsatellite analysis show that these three wild taxa are the most distant relatives of the crop, whereas the wild forms M. flabellifolia and M. esculenta subsp.
Genetic diversity of the endangered coastal violet Viola grayi Franchet et Savatier (Violaceae) and its genetic relationship to the species in subsection Rostratae
The coastal violet populations showed markedly lower genetic diversity than those of the common species, V. grypoceras and V. kusanoana, and these three species showed a remarkably high inbreeding coefficient, which indicates high in breeding under natural mating conditions.
Development of microsatellite markers for Dryobalanops aromatica (Dipterocarpaceae), a tropical emergent tree in Southeast Asia
Eight polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed in Dryobalanops aromatica, an emergent tree in tropical rain forests in Southeast Asia, using an enriched library method, and will be useful for studies of population genetics, reproductive ecology and regeneration dynamics of D. aromatica.
Genetic diversity and molecular differentiation of Chinese toad based on microsatellite markers
The results suggested that the level of genetic structuring in B. gargarizans was relatively low in the geographical scale of the study area, and genetic differentiation among the populations was considerably high with the overall and pairwise FST values.
Identifying Populations for Conservation on the Basis of Genetic Markers
The methods proposed to identify prior- ity areas for conservation of the genetic resources of the argan tree are compared to those sometimes advo- cated in the case of reserve design, where one of the goals is to maximize species richness.
Effects of life history traits on genetic diversity in plant species
An analysis of twelve plant families indicated that species within families with predominately outcrossing, woody species had more genetic diversity and less interpopulation differentiation than species withinfamilies with predominate herbaceous species.
Nuclear and chloroplast DNA phylogeography reveals Pleistocene divergence and subsequent secondary contact of two genetic lineages of the tropical rainforest tree species Shorea leprosula (Dipterocarpaceae) in South‐East Asia
The genetic structure of S. leprosula was largely formed during the middle Pleistocene and was subsequently modified by eastward migration across the subaerially exposed Sunda Shelf.
