. Most of the world's cultivars are selections from local wild vegetation. Based on simple sequence repeat markers, most cultivars have been assigned to one of four major geographical groups: Central European, Black Sea, English or Spanish

infection and a lack of correlation in reaction to CBB between leaves, pods, and seeds further complicate breeding for resistance ( Arnaud-Santana et al., 1994 ). The substantial progress made in molecular marker technology for the common bean holds

-scale spatial genetic structure, mating system, or gene flow among populations in both its native and introduced ranges are of interest to foresters and ecologists. Over previous decades, microsatellites have emerged as markers of choice in such analyses because
