Abstract

Twelve pairs of simple sequence repeat markers (SSR) were developed using a single ascospore isolate of Ophiostoma ips, isolated from the bark beetle, Orthotomicus erosus, infesting Pinus elliottii in South Africa. All markers were found to be polymorphic when tested on seven isolates of O. ips collected from Austria, Chile, Israel, Mexico, South Africa, Sweden, and the USA. These will now be useful in population and phylogenetic studies on O. ips.
