Abstract: Genetic analysis in 53 early introduced clones of rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) collected from different areas inSouthern Thailand was performed using RAPD (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA) and microsatellite markers. Seventeencultivated clones (34 samples) were also included to compare DNA patterns. DNA was isolated from leaf samples usingCTAB buffer. One hundred and ninety two 10-base oligonucleotide primers for RAPD were first screened and 8 primers(OPB-17, OPN-16, OPR-02, OPR-11, OPZ-04, OPAD-01, OPAD-10 and OPAD-12) were chosen for genetic variationanalysis in 87 individual plants. Seventy amplification fragments were obtained from the 8 primers with an average of 8.75fragments for each primer. From all fragments 55 were polymorphic fragments (78.57%). One RAPD primer (OPAD-01)yielded a 700-bp fragment that was present only in the Tjir1 clone. Four microsatellite primer pairs (hmac4, hmct1, hmct5and hmac5) produced a total of 44 amplified fragments with an average of 14.67 fragments per primer, of which 37 werepolymorphic (84.09%) while hmac5 produced only monomorphic fragments. A phenogram showing genetic similaritiesamong rubber trees was constructed based on the polymorphic bands of the RAPD and microsatellite analyses using UPGMA(Unweighted Pair-Group Method Using Arithmetic Average). Cluster analysis was performed by the NTSYS Version 2.1program. The results from phenogram showed that the 87 rubber clones could be clustered into 6 groups with similaritycoefficients ranging from 0.541-1.000. Cultivated clones revealed more narrow genetic diversity compared to the early introducedclones. The clustering was not correlated with the geographical location of the collected samples.

Abstract: rubber tree clones present different intensity of symptoms, depending on their age. this is mostly clearly seen inthe presence or absence of old leaves with ascopores, corresponding to flows of new and susceptible leaves. the objective of this work was to evaluate the intensity of symptoms of south american leaf blight (salb) in six rubber tree clones, one and eight years old, in the vale do ribeira region, s?o paulo state. the results showed that clones fx 3864, rrim 600, ian 873 and ian 717 suffered more attacks when young, and rrim 600, ian 717 and fx 3864 when adult. the clone ian 873 showed the smallest amounts of disease in the adult phase, due to uniform change in the leaves and a compact flow of new leaves, which happened during a season that was unfavorable to pathogen infection, presenting the phenomenon of avoidance or evasion in time.

Abstract: the objective of this study was to make a quantitative assess of the anatomic characteristics of leaf blade of the sugarcane cultivars rb855113, sp80-1842, sp80-1816, rb867515 and clone rb957689 presenting different sensitivity to the mixture of sodium trifloxysulfuron + ametryn herbicides. compared to the other cultivars assessed, rb855113 cultivar, considered more sensitive to the herbicide mixture, presented relevant differences such as greater proportion of bulliform cells, greater tissue proportion in the transverse section of the leaf blade, greater stomata and trichome density on both surfaces, thinner epidermis on the adaxial surface and length of stomata on both surfaces. the external paraclinal wall of the bulliform cells was thinner than in the common epidermis cells in all the genotypes on the adaxial and abaxial surfaces. multivariate analysis of the data on the variables considered most relevant to explain the herbicide penetration singled out the sensitive rb855113 from the other materials. such characteristics can explain the greater penetration, and consequently, greater sensitivity of this cultivar to the sodium trifloxysulfuron + ametryn mixture.

Abstract: This study aimed to estimate the repeatability coefficients, to compare the efficiency of methodologies used inthe estimation process, and further to determine the minimal number of evaluations in the selection of rubber tree [Heveabrasiliensis (Willd. ex Adr. de Juss.) Muell. - Arg.] clones. The following methodologies were used: analysis of variance;principal component analysis based on the correlation matrix together with the phenotypic variances and covariance matrix;and the structural analysis. The r values for girth growth varied from 0.77 to 0.79 and rubber yield from 0.39 to 0.52. It wastherefore admitted that the principal component method based on the correlation matrix as well as for the phenotypicvariances and covariance matrix are the most efficient to estimate the coefficient of repeatability. At an accuracy of 90% and80%, two measurements of girth growth and four to six measurements of rubber yield would be necessary for the selection ofrubber tree clones, respectively.

Abstract: this work aimed to evaluate the effects of simulated drift of glyphosate on the morphoanatomy of three eucalypt clones and to correlate the intoxication symptoms on a microscopic scale with those observed in this visual analysis. the effects of glyphosate drift were proportional to the five doses tested, with eucalyptus urophylla being more tolerant to the herbicide than e. grandis and urograndis hybrid. the symptoms of intoxication which were similar for the different clones at 7 and 15 days after application were characterized by leaf wilting, chlorosis and curling and, at the highest rates, by necrosis, leaf senescence and death. anatomically glyphosate doses higher than 86.4 g.ha-1 caused cellular plasmolysis, hypertrophy and hyperplasia, formation of the cicatrization tissue and dead cells on the adaxial epidermis. the spongy parenchyma had a decrease, and the palisade parenchyma and leaf blade thickness had an increase. the increased thickness in leaf blade and palisade parenchyma may be related to the plant response to glyphosate action, as a form of recovering the photosynthetically active area reduced by necroses and leaf senescence caused by the herbicide.

Abstract: life cycle of tenuipalpus heveae baker (acari, tenuipalpidae) on leaflets from three rubber tree clones. the biological cycle of tenuipalpus heveae baker, 1945 (tenuipalpidae), a potential rubber tree pest mite, was studied by the observation of individuals reared on leaflets of the clones gt 1, pb 235 and rrim 600, in controlled environmental conditions. three daily observations were done of 60 eggs on leaflets from each clone in order to verify the development of immature stages and the female oviposition. the fertility life table was constructed based in the collected data. mites reared on pb 235 had faster rate of development, requiring less time in days, to double its population in number (td), and had the highest values for egg production, female longevity, net reproductive rate (ro), intrinsic rate of natural increase (rm) and finite rate of increase (λ). lower reproductive values and the longest time necessary to reach adult stage were recorded for the mites on gt 1. in all studied clones, the deutonymphal phase had the highest viability, while the larval phase had the lowest, highlighted by the survivorship curve that indicated high mortality during this life stage. the clone pb 235 allowed the most suitable conditions for the development of t. heveae, followed by rrim 600, while gt 1 was the less suitable substratum to rear this mite species.
