Sustainable management of neo-tropical tree genetic resources: combining molecular and modelling methods to understand structure and dynamics of gene diversity

Objective

This proposal aims to investigate the influence that life history and ecological traits have on the structuring of genetic variation for a range of ecologically and economically important forest tree species from across the Neo-tropics. On this basis specific case studies will be considered to examine the impact that four human-mediated land-use changes (i.e. logging, fragmentation, regeneration and domestication) have on the structure and dynamics of genetic diversity within mature and regenerating cohorts. Collected data will be used as input into a specific and novel computer model to identify and produce management strategies that are likely to maximise genetic resources for the species and pressures considered.
