PREMISE OF THE STUDY Polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed for Fosterella rusbyi (Bromeliaceae) to evaluate the population genetic structure and genetic diversity of natural populations of F. rusbyi and other Fosterella species in Bolivia. METHODS AND RESULTS 454 pyrosequencing technology was used to generate 73027 sequence reads from F. rusbyi DNA, which together contained 2796 perfect simple sequence repeats (SSRs). Primer pairs were designed for 30 loci, of which 15 were used… Expand
Development of 18 polymorphic microsatellite markers for Vinca minor (Apocynaceae) via 454 pyrosequencing1
The novel polymorphic microsatellite markers developed in Vinca minor are promising tools for studying clonality and population genetics of V. minor and for assessing the historical origin of Central European populations. Expand
Development of 15 nuclear microsatellite markers in the genus Dyckia (Pitcairnioideae; Bromeliaceae) using 454 pyrosequencing
15 microsatellite markers are promising tools for studying population genetics in Dyckia species and proved to be polymorphic in five populations from three heterologous species. Expand
Development and characterization of microsatellite markers for Vriesea simplex (Bromeliaceae) and cross-amplification in other species of Bromeliaceae
Ten polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized for Vriesea simplex epiphytic and endemic species from the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest for studying population genetic structure, mating system variation, and the origin and maintenance of reproductive barriers to gene exchange among sympatric Vriesaea species.

Microsatellites from Fosterella christophii (Bromeliaceae) by de novo transcriptome sequencing on the Pacific Biosciences RS platform1
Microsatellite markers developed in Fosterella christophii (Bromeliaceae) are promising tools to study the population genetics of F.christophii and to discover species boundaries within the F. micrantha group. Expand
A set of plastid microsatellite loci for the genus Dyckia (Bromeliaceae) derived from 454 pyrosequencing.
The set of 12 cpSSR markers provides a toolbox to analyze phylogeographical patterns of Dyckia species and provides a better-resolved genus-wide plastid genealogy of Dyckeria. Expand
Development of 15 nuclear microsatellite markers in Deuterocohnia (Pitcairnioideae; Bromeliaceae) using 454 pyrosequencing
15 new microsatellite markers are promising tools for studying population genetics in Deuterocohnia species and are shown to be polymorphic in one population each of D. meziana and D. seramisiana. Expand
Strong genetic differentiation among populations of Fosterella rusbyi (Bromeliaceae) in Bolivia
The observed patterns are consistent with the hypothesis that newly available sites are sporadically colonized by one or a few founders, followed by in situ population expansion via vegetative propagation, self-pollination and/or biparental inbreeding, genetic differentiation among persistent populations and, ultimately, allopatric speciation.

A set of variable plastid SSR markers for the genus Cryptanthus (Bromeliaceae)
The development of plastid microsatellitemarkers (cpSSRs) for Cryptanthus are described and six loci were identified to be polymorphic among 30 individuals of each of the two endangered species C. schwackeanus and C. warren-loosei. Expand
Transferability of 10 nuclear microsatellite primers to Vriesea minarum (Bromeliaceae), a narrowly endemic and threatened species from Brazil
The results show the great potential in working with these co-dominant markers for V. minarum, which may help in developing conservation actions for the species in the future. Expand
Transferability of nuclear microsatellite markers to the atmospheric bromeliads Tillandsia recurvata and T. aeranthos (Bromeliaceae)
The cross-transferability of SSR markers isolated from other bromeliad species to Tillandsia recurvata (L.) L. and T. aeranthos (Loisel) is reported, which will be a helpful tool to address a range of evolutionary and ecological questions. Expand


Phylogenetic analysis of Fosterella L.B. Sm. (Pitcairnioideae, Bromeliaceae) based on four chloroplast DNA regions.
A phylogenetic analysis based on sequence data from four chloroplast DNA regions showed the monophyly of Fosterella was strongly supported, as was its sister relationship with a clade comprising Deuterocohnia, Dyckia and Encholirium. Expand
