Title: Development and characterization of microsatellite markers in the Point Arena mountain beaver Aplodontia rufa nigra

Author: Pilgrim, Kristine L.; Zielinski, William J.; Mazurek, Mary J.; Schlexer, Frederick V.; Schwartz, Michael K.

Source: Molecular Ecology Notes. 6(3): 800-802.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The Point Arena mountain beaver (Aplodontia rufa nigra) is an endangered subspecies. Efforts to recover this sub-species will be aided by advances in molecular genetics, specifically the ability to estimate population size using noninvasive genetic sampling. Here we report on the development of nine polymorphic loci for the Point Arena mountain beaver. These markers provide us sufficient power to distinguish individuals, and thus can be used for calculating population size and delineating population substructure.

Keywords: Aplodontia rufa nigra, microsatellite, mountain beaver, noninvasive genetic sampling
