Genipa americana is a tropical tree species that is widely distributed in the humid tropical and subtropical regions of Central and South America. This study investigated Mendelian inheritance, ge­netic linkage, and genotypic disequilibrium at six microsatellite loci developed for G. americana. Adult trees (188) and regenerants (163) were sampled and genotyped in a fragmented population of the spe­cies. We also genotyped open-pollinated seeds from 12 seed-trees dur­ing reproductive events in 2010 and 2011.
