We examined the cross-species amplification success of thirtymicrosatellite markers developed from North American northern red oak (Quercus rubra) in other members of the family Fagaceae. Sixteen of these markers are newly developed and we report primer sequences and amplification conditions here. Twelve of the thirty (40.0%) red oak markers amplified and were polymorphic in the European white oaks Quercus petraea and Quercus robur. Five of the thirty loci (16.7%) also amplified and four were polymorphic in the phylogenetically distant Chinese chestnut (Castanea mollissima). These markers should bewidely applicable to genetic studies of Quercus and other members of the Fagaceae.
