    Abstract

    Polymerase chain reaction primers amplifying 10 microsatellite loci for a tropical emergent tree, Dipterocarpus tempehes (Dipterocarpaceae) were developed. The polymorphism was estimated by screening 34 adult trees. The numbers of alleles per locus were from seven to 14 with the average of 10.3. Expected heterozygosity ranged from 0.57 to 0.88 with the average of 0.78. Total exclusion probabilities with the present 10 loci for the first and second parents of seedlings were 0.9962 and 0.9999, respectively. The high level of polymorphism indicates that the present loci are useful for the analysis of pollen movement, seed dispersal and inbreeding depression.
