Fifteen microsatellite markers have been isolated from western hemlock [Tsuga heterophylla (Raf.) Sarg] genomic DNA and six of these markers were optimized for use in mountain hemlock [Tsuga mertensiana (Bong) Carr.]. The mean expected heterozygosity (HE) was 0.88 and 0.89 for western hemlock and mountain hemlock, respectively. Allelic diversity was high for both hemlock species, ranging from 7 to 15 alleles per locus for western hemlock and 5–30 alleles per locus for mountain hemlock. The allelic variation identified in this project will allow monitoring of changes in genetic variation as a result of selection pressure in breeding programs.
