Abstract

To aid in understanding the structure, dispersal and genetic dynamics of their populations, we developed microsatellite and amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers for the sea palm, Postelsia palmaeformis (Laminariales) for samples taken from nine sites in the area of Cape Flattery, Washington State, USA. We identified two AFLP primers that yielded 798 variable fragments and five microsatellite markers with three to seven alleles each. We also report patterns of allelic variation for four previously identified microsatellite markers in this species and several new alleles.
