Abstract

Lycopodium fordii Bak. (Lycopodiaceae, Pteridophyta) is a gardening plant with a native, fragmentary distribution in Taiwan. In this study, we described the development of eleven microsatellite loci in L. fordii for genetic studies. These new markers were tested in 16 individuals of three populations. The number of alleles ranged from 1 to 5 and the expected heterozygosity from 0.41746 to 0.72222. Four of the nine polymorphic loci were significantly deviated from Hardy-Weinberg expectations due to the heterozygote deficiency. The microsatellite markers have also been proved as informative genetic markers for other 15 Lycopodium species.
