Inter simple sequence repeat polymerase chain reaction (ISSR-PCR) was used for the genetic analysis of the six species of Allocasuarina, five species of Casuarina and 12 superior performing selections of C. equisetifolia L. We also fingerprinted C. equisetifolia L. selections using Fluorescent-ISSR-PCR (FISSR-PCR), an improvised ISSR-PCR assay. The ISSR analysis provided information on the frequency of various simple sequence repeats in the casuarina genome. The di-nucleotide repeats were more common, among which (CA)n and its complementary nucleotide (GT),, repeat motifs amplified relatively higher number of bands with an average of 6.0+/-3.5 and 6.3+/-1.8 respectively. Eleven species of casuarinas were amplified with 10 primers anchored either at 5' or 3' end. A total of 253 PCR products were obtained and all were polymorphic, out of which 48 were specific to Allocasuarina and 36 were specific to Casuarina genus. Genetic similarity among the species was 0.251. A UPGMA dendrogram grouped all the Casuarina species together. The 12 superior performing selections of C. equisetifolia L. produced 57 polymorphic ISSR markers while the FISSR assay revealed 105 polymorphic markers. The primer CRR(ATT)4 distinguished all the selections. DNA profiles obtained with ISSR and FISSR assays would serve as a reference library for the establishment of clonal identity in casuarinas.
