Abstract: Obtaining reliable estimates of genetic parameters, including data related to the existing level of variability in breeding populations is essential to elucidate the genetic structure of populations and to infer their genetic variability and potential for improvement. 

Therefore, this study aimed to estimate genetic parameters and diversity in progenies from Macaw Palm based on morphological and physiological traits. For that, morphological and physiological traits were evaluated in 15 macaw palm progenies (established following a random block design with 5 repetitions and 3 plants per plot - 5x5m spacing). No significant genetic variability was observed for physiological traits in the evaluated progenies. However, for the morphological traits, the existence of genetic variability was evidenced. 

The macaw palm families were grouped into three distinct groups based on its genetic dissimilarity, being CPAC-03, the most divergent progeny to the others. The water use efficiency and the leaflet length were the traits that contributed most to the dissimilarity of the families.
