Abstract

We have screened 11 microsatellite markers developed in other Pinus species for their ability to produce fingerprints in the Pinus elliottii x Pinus caribaea hybrid as well as their ability to determine gene flow and parental contribution in this hybrid. We found that cross-species amplification was possible with two thirds of the microsatellite markers screened and that by pooling information from several microsatellite loci it was possible to determine gene flow and parental contribution in the hybrid.
