Abstract

Laccaria laccata is an early successional ectomycorrhizal fungus. We isolated five polymorphic microsatellite loci from L. laccata using a dual-suppression polymerase chain reaction technique. The number of alleles per locus ranged from three to six. The observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.269 to 0.462, and 0.249 to 0.775, respectively. These microsatellite markers would be valuable molecular tools for population genetic studies of L. laccata.
