Abstract

We developed 11 polymorphic microsatellite DNA markers for an Australian native shrub Banksia hookeriana (Proteaceae). The number of alleles per locus in 37 individuals varied from three to 17, observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.297 to 0.838 and from 0.279 to 0.900, respectively. Two loci (BH-B5 and BH-B107) showed significant deviation from Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium (P < 0.05), and null alleles may be present at these two loci. All loci showed independent inheritance.
