Abstract

We developed seven novel polymorphic microsatellite loci for the aquatic macrophyte Sparganium emersum (Sparganiaceae). These were characterized on 62 individuals collected from nine different populations. In this set of individuals, seven to 20 alleles per locus were detected and observed heterozygosity ranged between 0.16 and 0.95. Cross-species amplification was tested in the related species Sparganium erectum, and was successful for five of the seven microsatellite loci. [KEYWORDS: dispersal ; gene flow ; microsatellites ; null alleles ; population]
