Abstract

Juniperus sabina L. is an evergreen coniferous shrub, with a widespread distribution in Asia and Europe. It is one of the key species for restoration of the ecosystem in desertification areas. In the present study, we isolated and characterized eight microsatellite loci of this species. The number of alleles per locus ranged from two to 27, with observed heterozygosity values ranging from 0.256 to 0.744 and expected heterozygosity from 0.276 to 0.939. The markers developed in this study could be useful for population genetics studies of J. sabina.
