    Abstract

    Microsatellite markers for Ficus montana and Ficus septica were developed using genomic libraries enriched for di-, tri- and tetranucleotide repeats. The subsets of five and three best scorable primer pairs were characterized on 24 F. montana and 36 F. septica individuals, respectively. For F. montana, loci showed five to 14 alleles per locus and expected heterozygosities ranged between 0.23 and 0.87. For F. septica, loci showed three to five alleles per locus and expected heterozygosities ranged between 0.36 and 0.49. Four primer pairs (two from each subset) cross-amplified in the other species, indicating transportability of the markers within the genus Ficus
