Bottom Line: Nei's genetic diversity was 27% in S. macrocephala and 11% in S. capitata.For S. macrocephala, all of the allelic diversity was represented by 23 accessions, whereas only 13 accessions were necessary to represent all allelic diversity for S. capitata.The data presented herein evidence the population structure present in the Embrapa-Cerrados germplasm collections of S. macrocephala and S. capitata, which may be useful for breeding programs and germplasm conservation.

ABSTRACT
Stylosanthes species are important forage legumes in tropical and subtropical areas. S. macrocephala and S. capitata germplasm collections that consist of 134 and 192 accessions, respectively, are maintained at the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation Cerrados (Embrapa-Cerrados). Polymorphic microsatellite markers were used to assess genetic diversity and population structure with the aim to assemble a core collection. The mean values of H(O) and H(E) for S. macrocephala were 0.08 and 0.36, respectively, whereas the means for S. capitata were 0.48 and 0.50, respectively. Roger's genetic distance varied from 0 to 0.83 for S. macrocephala and from 0 to 0.85 for S. capitata. Analysis with STRUCTURE software distinguished five groups among the S. macrocephala accessions and four groups among those of S. capitata. Nei's genetic diversity was 27% in S. macrocephala and 11% in S. capitata. Core collections were assembled for both species. For S. macrocephala, all of the allelic diversity was represented by 23 accessions, whereas only 13 accessions were necessary to represent all allelic diversity for S. capitata. The data presented herein evidence the population structure present in the Embrapa-Cerrados germplasm collections of S. macrocephala and S. capitata, which may be useful for breeding programs and germplasm conservation.

Mentions: The STRUCTURE procedure clustered the S. capitata germplasm accessions into four groups (Figure 2), wherein 131 accessions (68%) were assigned to a single group with more than 80% probability of membership, and the remaining 61 accessions were so to different groups. Group D contained the largest number of accessions assigned with more than 80% membership probability (97%), whereas group A contained the highest percentage of mixed accessions (61%). HO values ranged from 0.40 in group A to 0.56 in group C, and HE values varied from 0.40 in group A to 0.49 in groups C and D. The Nei’s genetic diversity among the groups (GST) was calculated to infer the proportion of genetic diversity due to differences among the groups clustered by STRUCTURE in both species. GST values were 27% and 11% for S. macrocephala and S. capitata, respectively.
