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)
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)
