Effect of selective logging on genetic diversity and gene flow in Cariniana legalis sampled from a cacao agroforestry system

J. B. Leal, Santos, R. P., and Gaiotto, F. A., Effect of selective logging on genetic diversity and gene flow in Cariniana legalis sampled from a cacao agroforestry system, vol. 13, pp. 626-635, 2014.

The fragments of the Atlantic Forest of southern Bahia have a long history of intense logging and selective cutting. Some tree species, such as jequitibá rosa (Cariniana legalis), have experienced a reduction in their populations with respect to both area and density. To evaluate the possible effects of selective logging on genetic diversity, gene flow, and spatial genetic structure, 51 C. legalis individuals were sampled, representing the total remaining population from the cacao agroforestry system.
