Abstract
Twenty microsatellite markers were developed for the polyploid plant Triglochin maritima L., an important component of declining saltmarsh ecosystems that are now subject to much restoration effort. All loci were polymorphic when tested across 24 individuals from three populations. The average number of alleles per population was 6, ranging from 2 to 12. Private alleles were identified in each population, demonstrating the utility of these markers for the investigation of the population genetic structure and diversity of this species.
