Abstract
Black cherry (Prunus serotina) is a tree from
North America, where it is often used for economical purposes,
whereas it is widespread and invasive in Europe.
Plastid DNA variation was Wrst investigated in both its
native and invasive ranges using microsatellite loci and
sequences of three intergenic spacers (trnT-trnL, trnD-trnT
and trnS-trnG). This analysis was focused on P. serotina
var. serotina, with the inclusion of samples of closely
related taxa. Length variation at a microsatellite locus
(ccmp5) and a few sequence polymorphisms were identi-
Wed among P. serotina samples. Four new primer pairs
were then designed to speciWcally amplify variable regions
and a combination of Wve markers was Wnally proposed for
phylogeographic studies in P. serotina. These loci allow
identiWcation of six chlorotypes in P. serotina var. serotina,
which may be particularly useful to depict the maternal
origins of European invasive populations
