A previous mtDNA study indicated that female-mediated gene flow was extremely rare among alligator snapping turtle populations in different drainages of the Gulf of Mexico. In this study, we usedExpand
Characterization of microsatellite DNA markers for the alligator snapping turtle, Macrochelys temminckii: Primer note
Two trinucleotide and seven tetranucleotide microsatellite loci were isolated from an alligator snapping turtle Macrochelys temminckii. To assess the degree of variability in these nineExpand
