Several small: how inbreeding affects conservation of Cariniana legalis Mart. Kuntze (Lecythidaceae) the Brazilian Atlantic Forest’s largest tree

Abstract:

We investigated the impact of population size on genetic diversity, inbreeding and mating system in small remnant stands of the Neotropical tree, Cariniana legalis, using microsatellite loci. All adult trees within three different size stands (4, 22 and 65 trees) were sampled, along with open-pollinated seeds. A number of impacts related to population size were evident. Allelic richness was significantly lower among progeny in the smallest fragment, as was outcrossing rate. Individual tree ou...
