Abstract
Zostera marina, the dominant seagrass on the Northern Hemisphere, forms the basis of important but threatened marine ecosystems. Here, we report 14 microsatellite DNA markers derived from an expressed sequence tag library corresponding to a wide range of genes. All loci were moderately to highly polymorphic, with allele numbers ranging from three to eight in a single Wadden Sea population of 48 individuals. Observed heterozygosities ranged from 0.082 to 0.837. Reaction conditions for five pooled polymerase chain reactions are given. The markers will advance the population genetics of seagrasses because they allow indirect tests of selection on closely linked genes.
