- Sixteen microsatellite loci isolated from Halesia tetraptera are described. All 16 are polymorphic, with four to 13 alleles across 15-19 members of a single half-sib family. Heterozygosity ranged from 0.067 to 1. One locus departs significantly from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium in our test family. The test population shows significant heterozygote deficiency at this and two other loci. Thirteen loci exhibit significant linkage disequilibrium. These loci will be utilized in paternity analyses of geographically diverse half-sib families.
