Abstract

This study was to determine the relationships between genetic variation and metal concentrations based on polluted and clean populations of Centella asiatica from the transplantation study through the use of Random Amplified Microsatellites (RAMs). The 19 primers amplified a total of 153 reproducible bands across the 8 populations of C. asiatica used for a transplantation study at week 3 and week 6. For the transplantation study under laboratory conditions, there was a similar relationship found between the genetic variations and the metal accumulations. This indicated that the roots, leaves and stems of C. asiatica were able to reflect the metals pollution of the sampling sites.
