The first introduction of Tectona grandis in Indonesia took place between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries and in Africa in the nineteenth century. A total of 1.1 and 0.3 million ha, respectively were planted in the two areas. The extension of teak plantations often started from these first introductions. Unfortunately, the documentation concerning dates, planting stocks and the sources of origin of the teak imported into the different countries was very inaccurate. In this study, the use… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Worldwide translocation of teak—origin of landraces and present genetic base
TLDR
The genetic data suggests that the studied teak landraces originated from either the semi-moist east coast of India, southern Myanmar or western Thailand, and indicates that translocation of teak has mainly come from a certain part of the native distribution. Expand
Genetic diversity of teak (Tectona grandis L.F.) from different provenances using microsatellite markers
TLDR
The objective of this work was to characterize the genetic diversity of teak genotypes used in Brazilian plantations, and Suggestions were made concerning the identification of contrasting genotypes to be used as parents in breeding programs. Expand
Genetic diversity and the origin of commercial plantation of Indonesian teak on Java Island
TLDR
There is a weak genetic structure on teak plantations among the regions, which indicates that most plantations were established using plant materials from a specific part of the natural teak distribution, and information regarding the genetic diversity and structure of plantation forests should be taken into account when making future plantation programs. Expand
Genetic variation and origin of teak (Tectona grandis L.f.) native and introduced provenances
TLDR
AMOVA analysis showed that the majority of variation existed within provenances and variation in India provenances was highest than in other countries’ provenances, showing different countries populations should be preserved in the natural habitat or collected for ex site conservation with cooperation and region-wise strategies. Expand
Genetic resources of teak (Tectona grandis Linn. f.)—strong genetic structure among natural populations
TLDR
The pattern of genetic diversity supports the hypothesis that teak has its centre of origin in India, from where it spread eastwards, and a strong genetic structure among populations is implied. Expand
Genetic diversity of teak populations in native regions and plantations in Myanmar detected by microsatellite markers
Teak (Tectona grandis L.f) has been regarded as one of the world’s most precious tropical tree species because it provides premium timber with a number of very desirable properties including highExpand
Genetic variation of teak (Tectona grandis Linn. f.) in Myanmar revealed by microsatellites
TLDR
The observation of significant IBD and high differentiation between the populations of the north and the south of Myanmar suggests to include populations from widely separated forests in conservation programs, and to delineate provenance regions for the harvest and transfer of teak seeds and seedlings. Expand
Genetic Differentiation and Adaptability of Teak (Tectona grandis L.f.) Meta-Population in India
TLDR
The integration of spatial/climatic variables altered the clustering pattern of the teak meta-population with signature of the adaptation to the temperature and longitudinal gradients that was also verified by the similar adaptation pattern of meta- population towards predicted global climate modeling for year 2050. Expand
Tracing the genetic origin of two Acacia mearnsii seed orchards in South Africa
TLDR
The relatively larger number of unique allele from the Potgieterskues stand suggest that seed unknown to the ICFR was used to establish the orchard, and will provide the foundation for DNA-based molecular support to the breeding programmes. Expand
Trait variations in 28-year-old teak (Tectona grandis) provenance field trials in Ghana, West Africa
TLDR
Nilambur and Savannakhet II provenances proved to be favourable choices for the moist zone, whereas the Temandsang provenance from Indonesia was found to be the best choice for the dry site. Expand

Isozyme variation among teak (Tectona grandis L.f.) provenances
TLDR
Fourteen enzyme systems were analysed in leaf parenchyma of nine native and introduced populations of teak, showing genetic distances among populations of the same group were similar, and lower than the genetic distances between populations from different groups. Expand
Diversity and genetic structure of teak (Tectona grandis L.f) in its natural range using DNA microsatellite markers
TLDR
Analysis of the genetic variability and structure of 166 teak trees distributed over the whole natural area of teak showed that in the teak natural area there were four main centers of genetic variability, and the use of SSR markers for conservation of Teak forest diversity is discussed. Expand
A multivariate study on genetic variation in teak (Tectona grandis (L.))
TLDR
Genetic differentiation between populations of teak (Tectona grandis (L.) was examined in 9 quantitative characters and 10 allozyme loci, and large differences were revealed in the quantitative traits. Expand
Assessment of genetic diversity in Tectona grandis using amplified fragment length polymorphism markers
There is much concern over teak (Tectona grandis L. f.) genetic resources because of uncontrolled logging during the past centuries. We investigated patterns of genetic variation within and amongExpand
Evaluation of International Teak Provenance Trial Plot in North East Andhra Pradesh
TLDR
The Analysis of Variance of data on 26 year old trees indicated non-significant differences among provenances for height, clear bole height, gbh, Crown scores while significant differences for survival rate, straightness and roundness of stem and health characteristics. Expand
Preliminary Observations on Variability of Teak in India
TLDR
Recommendations have been made on tbe pretreatment requirements of teak seeds collected from different seed sources and are presented in the form of a table, of practical importance for raising nursery seedlings. Expand
Development and characterization of microsatellite markers in Tectona grandis (Linn. f)
TLDR
Fifteen highly polymorphic microsatellite loci were developed from a genomic library enriched for AG/TC repeats and constitute a powerful tool in investigating the mating system, gene flow, parentage analysis and population dynamics for use in sustainable management of teak forests and for in situ conservation purposes.

Proportion and quality of heartwood in Togolese teak (Tectona grandis L.f.)
TLDR
The heartwood proportion, modulus of elasticity (EL) and wood density at 12% moisture content of 80 trees of various ages from different ecological zones in Togo showed that the percentage of heartwood differed significantly in trees depending on the ecological zones. Expand
High level of genetic differentiation for allelic richness among populations of the argan tree [Argania spinosa (L.) Skeels] endemic to Morocco
TLDR
It is shown that the measure of subdivision, θST, obtained when allelic richness is used in place ofh (Nei's index of diversity), is much larger than the FST, which suggests that rare alleles have a more scattered distribution than more frequent ones. Expand
Growth, Stem Quality and age-age Correlations in a Teak Provenance Trial in Tanzania
TLDR
The findings demonstrate that it is possible to find large height and yield differences between teak provenances, and the best performing provenance grows some 10% (height) to 40% (volume) better than the average. Expand
