Abstract

Twelve polymorphic microsatellite markers were isolated from the kelp Ecklonia cava Kjellman (Phaeophyceae, Laminariales). The applicability of these markers was confirmed by genotyping of 24 individuals from a natural population in Japan. All 12 loci were polymorphic, with the number of alleles ranging from 2 to 11 per locus. The range of expected heterozygosities in the population was 0.187-0.867. These informative microsatellite markers will be useful in genetic studies of this species.
