The evolutionary history and relationships of the mud shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Gebiidea and Axiidea) are contentious, with previous attempts revealing mixed results. The mud shrimps were once classified in the infraorder Thalassinidea. Recent molecular phylogenetic analyses, however, suggest separation of the group into two individual infraorders,(More)
The red-spot prawn, Metapenaeopsis barbata, is a commercially important, widely distributed demersal species in the Indo-West Pacific Ocean. Overfishing has made its populations decline in the past decade. To study conservation genetics, eight polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated. Genetic characteristics of the SSR (simple sequence repeat)(More)
We determined the complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) sequence of Metzia formosae, which is known as an endangered freshwater species in Taiwan and mainland China, with a long polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method. The total length of M. formosae mitogenome is 16,614 bp, consisting of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNAs, 2 ribosomal RNAs genes(More)
Varicorhinus alticorpus (Cyprinidae) is an endangered freshwater fish with a scattered distribution in the southern and eastern regions of Taiwan. We described the development of nine polymorphic microsatellite loci in V. alticorpus for genetic studies. These new markers were tested in 20 individuals of the rare species. The number of alleles ranged from 4(More)
Populations of mudshrimp, Austinogebia edulis, in the intertidal mud flat of western Taiwan have severely declined due to habitat destruction and overfishing in the past decades. Nine polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated for this ecologically threatened species by using a polymerase chain reaction-based procedure. The number of alleles per locus(More)
Nine polymorphic microsatellite makers were isolated and characterized in 20 individuals of Parapenaeopsis hardwickii collected from the fishing ground near Ilan, Taiwan. Number of alleles per locus ranged from 3 to 8, observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.5263 to 0.7632, and from 0.4225 to 0.8044, respectively. Only one locus showed a(More)
