This chapter is concerned with plant breeding structure in fragmented landscapes. It first examines the theoretical effects of fragmentation on the genetic composition of forest tree populations. It then discusses case studies of the breeding structure of several Neotropical dry-forest tree species in fragmented landscapes, such as Jobo, Guanacaste, Laurel, and Spanish Cedar. It also examines the implications of forest fragmentation on the conservation of genetic diversity in these disturbed landscapes.

Keywords:   plant breeding, fragmented landscapes, fragmentation, Neotropical dry-forest tree, Jobo, Guanacaste, Laurel, Spanish Cedar, genetic diversity
