Abstract:
NorthAmerica is a center of diversity for Prunusspecies. Tree architecture, endodormancy requirement, heat requirement,fruit development period, fruit size, fruit texture, fruit flesh, diseaseresistance, and adaptive changes to multiple environmental conditions, are afew examples of the tremendous genetic variability available in the plum germplasm. Wild native Prunus species constitutes an importantsource for genetic diversity for stone fruit breeding and selection. The studyof genetic variability within the subgenus Prunussection Prunocerasus was theprimary objective of this research. Analyses recovered the major relationshipswithin section Prunocerasus. Highvariability was found across the major groups. In addition, possible candidatesof selection for adaptation were identified that could be transferred to otherstone fruits, such as peaches, apricots, and cherries.
