Abstract

Anadenanthera colubrina (Vell.) Brenan var. cebil (Griseb.) Altschul is a tree species in South America important for its cultural, economic, and medicinal uses. In addition, it represents a trace in memory of the forests that have decreased over the years and for this reason it is not only interesting to study but also important to preserve the tree species for future generations. In this paper, we have characterized the genetic diversity of four populations. We collected seeds from four different sites: San Bernardo (B), El Cebilar (C), Metán (M), and El Gallinato (G) in Salta Province, North Argentina. We then compared the intergenic transcribed sequences of ribosomal DNA, a known genetic molecular marker. Our previous results, obtained through the morphological and genetic analysis of only four individuals (one for each zone), have showed that the individuals from B and M sites were more similar to each other as well as the individuals from G and C sites. In this paper, a larger number of individuals (25) were characterized and their phylogenetic relationships were computed. The results confirmed the previously found similarities.
