Abstract

We report the characterization and optimization of nine polymorphic nuclear microsatellites from Cupressus sempervirens L. using an enriched library method. A total of 24 individuals from four different populations were used to estimate genetic diversity parameters. High level of allelic diversity was found with a number of alleles ranging from two to 13. These markers will prove very useful in screening diversity at different geographical scales and in monitoring gene flow in cypress orchards.
