Abstract: The genetic diversity of 116 barley accessions, representing five Chinese eco-geographic populations, was studied using simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. The 21 SSR loci revealed 128 alleles with an average of 6.1 alleles per locus. The highest values of proportion of polymorphic loci (P) and gene diversity index (He) were obtained in the Northern (P = 1.00; He = 0.60) and the Yangtze River reaches and Southern populations (P = 1.00; He = 0.59). The lowest values were in the populations of the Yellow River reaches (P = 0.86; He = 0.44). The highest average number of alleles per locus (4.52) and number of unique alleles (7) were found in the Qinghai–Tibet plateau population. Cluster analysis revealed that together with the row type, strong eco-geographic variables influenced the classification. Associations of SSR and eco-geographic values were established for 11 SSR loci. Four to six markers were found to discriminate among geographic groups, which may serve as tools for diagnosis of the eco-geographic populations and provide evidence for the adaptive nature of SSR markers.
