A linkage genome map for Eucalyptus camaldulensis DEHN was constructed using segregation data from a 92 full-sib progeny. The linkage map was based on Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD), Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (RFLP) and nuclear Microsatellite (SSR) markers. Marker data were analyzed for linkage using mapping software JOINMAP version 2.0. Linkage analysis resulted in 168 markers covering 1236 cM of the genome. The number of linkage groups determined was equivalent the haploid number of chromosomes (n=11) of Eucalyptus. This map can be used to define regions of the genome that are associated with important traits in E. camaldulensis and other Eucalyptus species such as wood and oil quality.
