[Extract] Kangaroos and wallabies are some of the most important commercially harvested native animals within Australia1. Besides being economically important within the meat and fur trade, kangaroos cause losses to agricultural production by competing with domestic livestock for fodder. Although these animals are of considerable economic importance, little is known about their genetic variability, or the linkage and physical mapping of their genes. In this study, we describe the isolation and characterization of 14 new polymorphic microsatellite loci isolated from the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii), and their cross-amplification in the eastern grey kangaroo (M. giganteus).
