Analysis of the population structure and mating system in Robinia pseudoacacia L. by molecular markers

Black locust is a fast growing tree species with hard and durable wood. The tree is characterized by good growth on poor and nitrogen-deficient soils and is suitable for afforestation of arable land and devastated areas. There has been a remarkable increase in the interest in this multipurpose tree species not only aimed at the production of construction timber, but also for the use as biomass source in short rotation plantations.

Background and Objective

Black locust is a fast growing tree species with hard and durable wood. The tree is characterized by good growth on poor and nitrogen-deficient soils and is suitable for afforestation of arable land and devastated areas. There has been a remarkable increase in the interest in this multipurpose tree species not only aimed at the production of construction timber, but also for the use as biomass source in short rotation plantations.

Approach

The application of nuclear microsatellite loci has many aims in population genetic studies. Here we introduce a very cost-effective method for combining the information of 14 nuclear microsatellite loci into two multiplex PCR sets as a contribution to greater standardisation and more comparable results.
Combined non-exclusion probabilities for clone identification using example populations are estimated at between 1.37*E-5 and 1.67*E-11, and for paternity analysis for 1.59*E-4. The detected weak linkage between some microsatellite loci is not considered to be a substantial restriction to the reliability of the set of markers in providing an appropriate method for fingerprinting and parentage analysis.
