Brachyplatystoma platynemum is a catfish species widely distributed in the Amazon basin. Despite being considered of little commercial interest, the decline in other fish populations has contributed to the increase in the catches of this species. The structure, population genetic variability, and evolutionary process that have driven the diversification of(More)
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Microsatellite loci were developed for tucumã of Amazonas (Astrocaryum aculeatum), and cross-species amplification was performed in six other Arecaceae, to investigate genetic diversity and population structure and to provide support for natural populations management. • METHODS AND RESULTS Fourteen microsatellite loci(More)
Anopheles darlingi is a major human malaria vector in the Neotropics. Twenty-four polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized in 21–32 individuals collected in Coari (Amazonas, Brazil). The number of alleles per locus ranged from 4 to 11 (average of 7.667). The observed heterozygosity (HO) varied between 0.037 and 0.833 (average of(More)

Twenty-four microsatellite loci were characterized for the Pimelodidae Brachyplatystoma capapretum and tested on 26–38 individuals from the Amazon basin. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 1 to 12 with the observed and expected heterozygosity values varying from 0.02 to 0.93 and 0.08 to 0.81, respectively. Twenty-one of the loci were in(More)
The Anopheles albitasis complex includes 6 species, and 3 are considered as malaria vectors in Brazil. Twenty-five polymorphic microsatellite DNA loci were isolated and characterized in 24-36 individuals from the neighborhood of Puraquequara, Manaus, Amazonas State, Brazil. The number of estimated alleles ranged from 2 to 10, the observed heterozygosity(More)
The large catfish Pseudoplatystoma punctifer has a high commercial value in the Amazon. Fifteen polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized in 36–39 individuals of this species sampled at the Purus river (Amazon Basin). The number of alleles per locus ranged from 2 to 18 (average 7.4), the observed heterozygosity (HO) from 0.025 to 0.972(More)
Anopheles (Nyssorhynchus) triannulatus is a complex of 3 species. Thirteen polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized in 20 to 25 individuals from Manaus (AM, Brazil). The number of alleles per locus varied from 3 to 10 (mean = 6.0). The observed heterozygosity ranged from 0.250 to 0.875 (mean = 0.680) and expected heterozygosity ranged(More)
