Abstract

Sasa senanensis is a dwarf bamboo species distributed on the floors of cool temperate forests in Japan and adjacent regions. We isolated eight polymorphic microsatellite loci from this species. The number of alleles ranged from two to eight and the observed heterozygosity per locus from 0.13 to 0.74. Seven of the eight loci were also polymorphic in Sasa nipponica. Most of these markers were successfully amplified in other dwarf bamboo species. These markers will be useful for investigating clonal structure and population genetics in some dwarf bamboo species.
