<jats:p>&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Aim of study&lt;/em&gt;: The aim of the study was to characterize functional microsatellite markers in &lt;em&gt;Prosopis alba&lt;/em&gt; and examine the transferability to species from the &lt;em&gt;Prosopis&lt;/em&gt; genus.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Area of the study&lt;/em&gt;: samples were obtained from natural populations of Argentina.&lt;strong&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Material and Methods&lt;/em&gt;: Eleven SSR functional markers related to stress and metabolism were amplified in a sample of 152 genotypes from &lt;em&gt;P.&lt;/em&gt; &lt;em&gt;alba&lt;/em&gt;, &lt;em&gt;P. denudans&lt;/em&gt;, &lt;em&gt;...
