Abstract :

There is growing interest in defining indicators of sustainability which are important for monitoring the conservation of native forest particularly in areas of permanent protection. These indicators are references for assessing the state of the forest and the status of the depredated area and its ability to maintain species populations. The aim challenge is to select genetic parameters as indicators of sustainability fornative forest species in fragments located in riparian areas in Brazil. This study was carried out using the indicators suggested by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development which were identified as Driving-Pressure-State-Impact-Response (DPSIR) factors. The genetic parameters were obtained by DNA molecular markers analysis in populations located in different biomesin Brazil. The framework for species conservation suggests 17 indicators of sustainability. In accordance with genetic parameters, the populations could be isolated and these genetic parameters can be used to monitor the sustainability of those populations with the aim of defining strategies for forest restoration and to selectecotypes for industrial use.
