The Influence of Environmental Features on the Morphometric Variation in Mauritia flexuosa L.f. Fruits and Seeds

Abstract: The environmental heterogeneity may reflect the different morphological and phenotypic traits of individuals belonging to a single species. We used 14 morphological traits of Mauritia flexuosa L.f. to understanding the relation between environment and phenotypic traits. Twenty-five fruits were collected from each of the 10 individuals sampled in each study site: Chapada dos Guimarães (CG), Vila Bela da Santíssima Trindade (VB), and Alta Floresta (AF). We analyzed the genetic divergence, using the standardized … Show more

“…Overall, our results suggest that populations from the continental and Mediterranean eco-geographical regions, despite their admixture in some cases, are isolated by the environment. It is well known that environmental heterogeneity can have a fundamental impact on phenotypic diversity [ 91 , 92 , 93 ]. In particular, different environments can result in spatially variable selection pressures, thereby contributing to phenotypic divergence among populations via phenotypic plasticity or local adaptation [ 92 , 94 ].…”

“…According to the new system for classi cation of the main types of Brazilian wetlands, the veredas are considered a macrohabitat contained in the interior wetlands system, and their hierarchy is presented in Table 7: The following other classes listed represented less than 6%: exposed soil, which mainly represents the access roads around the vereda; the classes of Dicranopteris exuosa in three vegetative stages (photosynthetically active (FA), in senescence (IS), and photosynthetically inactive (FI)), consisting of clusters of the Pteridophyte; and the class Mauritia exuosa L. f., representing the individuals and clusters of the buriti palm. M. exuosa is a palm species popularly known as buriti and characteristic of veredas (Sander et al 2020). The highway is the paved access road MT-251 and the water blade class discriminated the small areas where the gallery forest did not form the canopy closure and it was possible to visualize the watercourse.…”

“…No caso do buriti, o desenvolvimento dos frutos ocorre durante a estação seca e a maturação dos frutos durante a estação chuvosa, quando as condições de germinação das sementes são ótimas devido à maturidade fisiológica (ROSA; BARBOSA; KOPTUR, 2013). Contudo, as características morfofisiológicas sofrem alterações devido às variações ambientais, embora os frutos pertençam à mesma espécie e sejam distribuídos em locais diferentes, estes estão sujeitos à variação pela temperatura, fotoperíodo e taxa de precipitação, bem como a outras variáveis que podem estar ligadas a determinados aspectos da composição genética da espécie (SANDER et al, 2020).…”
