Conservation genetics of the alligator snapping turtle: cytonuclear evidence of range-wide bottleneck effects and unusually pronounced geographic structure
Microsatellite data reinforce the conclusion from mtDNA that the Suwannee River population might eventually be recognized as a distinct taxonomic unit, and it was the only population showing fixation or near fixation for otherwise rare microsatellite alleles.
Human Recreation and the Nesting Ecology of a Freshwater Turtle ( Chrysemys picta )
– Over a 3-year period, we studied the relationship between the intensity of human recreation and the nesting ecology of the painted turtle (Chrysemys picta) at a major nesting beach. Our results…
Characterization of microsatellite DNA markers for the alligator snapping turtle, Macrochelys temminckii: Primer note
These polymorphic microsatellite loci provide powerful tools for population genetic studies for a species that is afforded some level of conservation protection in every state in which it occurs.
Population Structure of the Alligator Snapping Turtle, Macrochelys temminckii, on the Western Edge of its Distribution
Turtles were captured in all streams and exhibited equal sex ratios, marked sexual-size dimorphism, and population densities between 28 and 34 animals per km stretch of stream.
