AFLP diversity of teak clonal seed orchard

Published on

The extent of genetic variation in a Clonal Seed Orchard
(CSO) revealed low genetic variation, and the UPGMA
dendrogram constructed with genetic similarity data did
not yield a firm pattern with respect to the geographic
location of the mother tree. In the CSO, all the flowered
clones were not able to produce seeds. Seed germination
showed that only two clones were able to germinate.
Mantel test showed that genetic distance was positively
correlated to height and Gbh and negatively related to
flowering of clones in the orchard.
