Abstract

Microsatellite loci were characterized in the African fig tree Ficus sycomorus in order to investigate patterns of pollination and gene flow in this species. The loci characterized included new loci isolated from F. sycomorus and a single locus originally developed in Ficus carica. In total 12 loci were polymorphic when tested in between eight and 79 Namibian F. sycomorus individuals. Three of the new F. sycomorus loci were found to be polymorphic in cultivars of the edible fig F. carica suggesting a selection of these loci will be useful for population studies in other fig species.
