Premise of the study: New microsatellite primers were developed for the diploid herb Anthyllis vulneraria . These primers will be used in upcoming studies focusing on random genetic variation, local adaptation, and phenotypic plasticity in alpine plants. Methods and Results: The new primers were adjusted to separate PCR amplicons (70 to 170 bp) on precast Spreadex gels using horizontal gel electrophoresis. No capillary sequencer was needed. Three to twelve alleles were found per locus depending on the population studied. Conclusions: Our preliminary results showed that the three studied alpine populations are predominantly outcrossing, but include variable levels of self-fertilization.
