Abstract The grey-crowned babbler (Pomatostomus temporalis) is a cooperative breeding bird species in which nonbreeding helpers of both sexes care for the young of breeding individuals. To measure the genetic relatedness between breeders and their offspring and helpers, we developed nine microsatellite markers. Most of the loci were highly polymorphic. These loci will be useful in understanding the evolution and maintenance of cooperative breeding and helping behaviour in this species.
