This study examined the interspecific amplification of nuclear microsatellite loci developed
mainly for eucalypts in the subgenus Symphyomyrtus across five species within the second
most speciose subgenus, subgenus Eucalyptus. A set of eight to 10 loci, depending on taxon,
have been identified that are highly variable and easily scored. The successful transfer of
microsatellite loci to these eucalypt species sidesteps the expensive and time-consuming
development of species-specific microsatellite libraries. This primer set will enable the
examination and cross-species comparison of the genetic resources of commercially and
ecologically important members of the subgenus Eucalyptus
