|Abstract: ||Relatedness among parents, variation in clonal fertility and background pollination deviate the
realized genetic gain and the gene diversity of open pollinated seed orchard from expectation, in
particular in wind pollinated species such as Pinus pinaster Aiton.
• This work investigates the genetic variation, the mating system and the pollen contamination in
a P. pinaster clonal seed orchard (CSO), by screening the 60 clones from the CSO and the seeds
collected from 21 mother-trees with three nuclear microsatellites.
• The expected diversity was similar, but the observed heterozygosity decreased 20% in the progenies
compared with the parental trees. The outcrossing rate was 90.1%, the biparental inbreeding 21.7%
computed through a multilocus approach, and the observed selfing 3.9%. The observed gene flow
from outside the CSO was 52.4%.
• From the results we concluded that the observed gene flow and the biparental inbreeding were
high, and care should be taken in the implementation and management of future CSO, in particular
clones should be checked for relatedness and the ramet number could be directly proportional to their
