Abstract

Vochysia ferruginea Mart. (Vochysiaceae) is a gap colonist of Neotropical forest. As a result of its high tolerance of low‐nutrient acidic conditions and high aluminium and iron concentrations, and its high potential seed and pollen dispersal, it is a promising timber species for commercial development as regenerated or reclaimed forest on degraded land. We present here the primer sequences for 10 polymorphic simple sequence repeat loci for use with V. ferruginea to assess fine‐scale genetic structure and gene flow dynamics.
