Molecular Diversification and Phylogeny of Mangifera (Anacardiaceae) in Indonesia and Thailand

Topik Hidayat, Adi Pancoro, Diah Kusumawaty, Wichan Eiadthong


Phylogenetic relationships among 19  Mangifera L. species of Indonesia and Thailand were analyzed by comparing sequences of maturase-K gene of chloroplast genome. Phylogenetic analysis using parsimony method revealed that the gene could clasify Mangifera into three major groups. Although this classification system is different with the previous system, it can provide a new information about Mangifera taxonomy. Results further exhibited that DNA sequences of the matK of two Mangifera species (M. laurina dan M. macrocarpa) are different between Indonesia and Thailand specimens.
