Tibouchina pulchra is a common hermaphroditic canopy tree of the Melastomataceae in the Brazilian Atlantic Rain Forest that is important for bee communities, reforestation, soil and air bio-indication and urban ornamentation. Twelve polymorphic microsatellite markers were isolated and characterized in 89 genotypes of T. pulchra from two populations of Ubatuba and Sao Luis do Paraitinga municipalities (Sao Paulo, Brazil). The number of alleles observed for each locus ranged from 4 to 31 with an average of 12 alleles per locus. The polymorphism information content varied between 0.51 and 0.92 (average 0.74) and the discriminating power (D) ranged from 0.66 to 0.99 (average 0.87). These microsatellite markers will be useful for assessing genetic studies, conservation management, and ecological and phylogenetic evaluations. (AU)
