    Abstract

    Thirteen novel polymorphic microsatellite loci are presented for Geum urbanum (Rosaceae). The microsatellites will be useful tools to analyse the influence of landscape structure and land-use intensity in agricultural landscapes on genetic diversity within and among populations of Geum urbanum. Transferability was tested in 19 other Geum species and two Waldsteinia species. In most species polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products of the expected range were obtained, therefore the markers reported here appear to be applicable across the whole genus
