Acrocomia aculeata is a tropical palm tree native to Central and South America that has significant economic, social, and environmental potential. However, land encroachment due to the expansion of agribusiness, and other factors such as urban sprawl, have resulted in the fragmentation and destruction of its habitat, leading to the loss of genes and genotypes in A. aculeata populations. In this context, the objective of this study was to characterize the genetic variability of A....
