Because ISSRs have been used for both species- and population-level studies within the genus Dirca (Schrader and Graves, 2004; Graves and Schrader, 2008), we used them to study genetic variation within and among geographically disparate populations of Dirca palustris.
We used five fluorescent 3'-anchored ISSR primers [[(CA).sub.6]RG, [(GTG).sub.3]GC, [(AC).sub.8]G, [(CAC).sub.3]RC, and [(CTC).sub.3]SG] previously optimized for analysis of genomic DNA from the genus Dirca by Schrader and Graves (2004).
