The development of compound microsatellite markers was conducted in Elaeocarpus decipiens to investigate genetic diversity and population genetic structure of this species. Eighteen microsatellite markers that were successfully amplified showed polymorphism when tested on 35 individuals from three populations in Chinese mainland. Overall, the number of alleles per locus ranged from 4 to 11, with an average of 7.06 alleles per locus. These results indicate that these microsatellite markers are adequate for detecting and characterizing population genetic structure and genetic diversity in E. decipiens. Of these primers, only four could be successfully transferred to E. sylvestris and E. japonicus.
