Abstract Dendrocalamus stocksii is an economically important strong solid and thorn less bamboo species which is endemic to
Westerns Ghats of India. Increase in utilization of this species has embarked the importance of conservation, diversity study,
propagation and plantation aspects.
Out study aims to analyse the morphological and genetic diversity among the ex-situ conserved 14 Candidate Plus Clumps (CPCs)
established at Bamboo Germplasm Bank of Institute of Wood science and Technology (IWST), Bangalore. This is the first report on
diversity studies of D. stocksii. The morphological diversity data among the 14 Candidate Plus Clumps (CPCs) originated from
different regions revealed variability in terms of culm height, diameter, internodal length, no. of culms/clump and solid and
hollowness of the culms. Highest culm diameter and number of culms/clump were recorded in PS-27.
In this study, the genetic diversity existing in the fourteen CPCs was estimated using ISSR–PCR. Eight ISSR primers amplified fifty
three amplicons in the size ranging from 225 to 1480. The total number of polymorphic bands varied from three to nine with 71.26 %
polymorphic banding profiles. Unweighted Pair Group Method with arithmetic mean (UPGMA) revealed two major clusters. Dice
similarity coefficient ranges from 0.48 to 1.00. Genetic diversity studies based on location divided all the 14 genotypes in to three
clusters Sirsi, Dandeli and Ponda. Existence of 60-70% genetic diversity in the species dominated with vegetative multiplication and
sporadic flowering habit is a noteworthy for a germplasm bank and its contribution for future conservation programmes.

1 Introduction

with lateritic soil type, this species has a wide
adaptability and comes up well in tropical humid, sub
humid and semi-arid conditions under black and red
soils as well. Multi-location trials have shown that this
species performs well in humid, sub-humid and
semi-arid zones, which expands the scope for its
cultivation across peninsular India. This species has
great economic and ecological importance as it is well
adapted by local community for cultivation along the
bunds and in and around homesteads. It is very well
appreciated and renders bread and butter for locally
economically poor medar community. It is used in
making furniture, construction, baskets, umbrella
handles, stakes for banana and poles (Singhal and
Gangopadhyay, 1999). D. stocksii is considered as an
important agroforestry species, ideal for plantations in
watershed and coastal regions. On-farm trials have
shown success in intercropping with Ipomea

Dendrocalamus stocksii (Munro.) M. Kumar, Remesh
& Unnikrishnan (Pseudoxytenanthera stocksii Munro.,
Oxytenanthera stocksii) is locally known as Marihal
bamboo or seemae bamboo, is endemic to Western
Ghats of India. It is a medium size slender solid non
thorny bamboo species, grows to a height of 9 m and a
diameter of 2.5 to 4cm broad (Seethalakshmi et al.,
1998). It is a mid-sized bamboo species with loosely
spaced solid erect culms ranging from 30-50mm
diameter, which provides flexibility in harvesting,
easy management and steady income to farmers. It is
distributed majorly in Central Western Ghats and
spreads across Maharashtra, Karnataka, Goa and
Kerala states. It is mostly confined to the banks of
streams with a temperature range of 25-35ºC and
requires a well drained deep loamy soil. Though the
natural distribution of this species is in humid tropics

Peculiar flowering habit in bamboo has been made it almost impossible to breed for superior traits particularly in woody bamboos. In recent times due to the scarcity of cane/rattan this species is increasingly been seen as a substitute in furniture industry due to its typical anatomical characteristics like the presence of non-predominant nodes. Eleusine coracana and Curcuma longa (Viswanath et al. 2011).biopublisher.. 1999). Because of its multifarious uses this species was considered as one among 15 industrially important species by National Bamboo Mission (NBM) and it is the most preferred species by the farmers in Peninsular India. Since it is a collection of CPCs from three regions based on morphological parameters with an objective to use for micro propagation studies.. solid nature of culms and good culm wall thickness (Chandramouli et al. 1989. 1-8 http://ijmec.

As such there is no published information on genetic diversity studies of D. IWST. Somashekar et al.. Germplasm Bank for 21 industrially important species of bamboos was established in 0. Traditionally propagated by the offset cutting and splitting rhizome. Estimation of genetic diversity is also important in designing improvement programmes. there was no sample size and sampling design followed for planting. Uttar Kannada from Central Western Ghats were transported to Bangalore and planted in Bamboo Germplasm Bank. In vitro propagation through nodal segments from mature tree has been reported (Sanjaya et al. Germplasm bank serves as a major repository for conservation of germline. Macro and micropropagation assumes importance in this species since seed setting is very poor. 2015. 2007). One of the major requirements of ex situ conservation programme is to study the genetic diversity information about the material conserved and use the same for mass multiplication of the species. Clonal propagation can encompass the traits of plus trees and clonal forestry based on elite selected genotypes allow a considerable improvement (Geilis et al.

That’s why few ISSR primers can capture much more variability from genomic segment than several RAPD primers with random coverage of entire genome (Moreno et al.

Genetic uniformity within the species collected from distant locations with distinct phenotypic variations was observed in Bambusa balcooa and B..
