Morphometric diversity between fruits and seeds of mahogany trees (Swietenia macrophylla King.) from Parakanã Indigenous Land, Pará State, Brazil

Abstract: Morphometric studies of fruits and forest seeds may indicate the presence of variability among individuals of the same species. The objective of this study was to investigate the morphometric diversity of fruits and seeds of Swietenia macrophylla in 20 individuals belong to the Parakanã Indigenous Land, PA, Brazil. The following characteristics of the fruits, wingless seeds, and seeds without testa of the 20 trees were evaluated. Analysis of variance was performed on the collected data, followed by test of the… Show more

“…Fresh fruit weight, pulp rate, fresh pulp weight, and moisture rate were the traits that most helped to explain the difference between materials. Partially similar results were found in research carried out by Leão et al [ 19 ], in the state of Pará Brazil, for the mogno tree species ( Swietenia macrophylla King.) in which the fresh fruit mass was the second characteristic, with 21.47% in explaining the genetic diversity.…”

“…Swietenia macrophylla King (Meliaceae), commonly known as mahogany, is one of the most important timber resources in the Americas and the most valuable in Mexico [1,2]. Physical, chemical, mechanical, and anatomical properties of its wood contribute to its high economic value.…”

“…According to Newton [15] and IUCN [16], it is considered vulnerable to extinction, and was therefore included in 2003 in Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora [17]. Similarly, Martins-Leão et al [2], mention that in Brazil and other regions it is in danger of extinction. In addition, it has been reported that the seeds of this species are sensitive to desiccation [18], as they cannot support the extreme loss of cellular water and quickly lose their viability.…”

“…Os resultados biométricos para frutos e sementes de Swietenia macrophylla King, coletados de 20 matrizes localizadas em diferentes municípios do sudeste do estado do Pará indicaram alta diversidade fenotípica, independentemente da localização da matriz (LEÃO et al, 2018). Com relação aos estudos de emergência de plântulas, houve diferença significativa entre as procedências para tempo médio de emergência (TME) e índice de velocidade de emergência (IVE), conforme observado na tabela 1.…”
