We present a set of 35 chloroplast microsatellite primers for Eucalyptus. Ten of the microsatellites displayed intraspecific polymorphism, and identified nine haplotypes among 16 Eucalyptus globulus individuals. Primer conservation was high, with a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) success rate of 98% when tested on four other Eucalyptus species and seven additional myrtaceous genera. Chloroplast microsatellites have applications in phylogeographic studies, fingerprinting and progeny analysis.
