PREMISE OF THE STUDY Microsatellite loci were developed in the endangered Pericopsis elata using a combination of low-cost procedures. METHODS AND RESULTS Microsatellite isolation was performed simultaneously on three distinct species through a newly available procedure that associates multiplex microsatellite enrichment and next-generation sequencing,(More)
This article documents the addition of 83 microsatellite marker loci and 96 pairs of single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) sequencing primers to the Molecular Ecology Resources Database. Loci were developed for the following species: Bembidion lampros, Inimicus japonicus, Lymnaea stagnalis, Panopea abbreviata, Pentadesma butyracea, Sycoscapter hirticola and(More)
Pericopsis elata (Harms) Meeuwen, also known as afrormo-sia, African teak, or assamela, is a deciduous tree that produces one of the most valued tropical timbers of Africa. However, habitat degradation, together with increasing pressures for international exports and regeneration problems, has led to important declines in some of its populations (Dickson et(More)
Scorodophloeus zenkeri is a tropical tree from mature rainforests of Central Africa, locally threatened by overexploitation. Ten nuclear microsatellite markers, amplifiable in two multiplexed reactions, were developed and characterized in one population. The levels of polymorphism observed (3–15 alleles per locus, expected heterozygosity ranging from 0.198(More)
Species delimitation within Angraecum section Dolabrifolia is problematic due to morphological variability coupled with overlap in many of the characters traditionally used to distinguish species. Recent molecular phylogenetic studies of the genus included three of the five currently described species of the Dolabrifolia group, placing them as sister to(More)
