Microsatellite DNA markers for Podocnemis unifilis, the endangered yellow‐spotted Amazon River turtle
We developed specific primers for microsatellite DNA regions of Podocnemis unifilis and tested their utility in population genetic and paternity studies on the species and other closely relatedExpand
Polyandry in Podocnemis unifilis (Pleurodira; Podocnemididae), the vulnerable yellow-spotted Amazon River turtle
We used eight microsatellite loci to investigate the mating system in P. unifilis. DNA samples were collected from 66 hatchlings sampled from six nests on a central Amazon River beach nearExpand
Polyandry in the red-headed river turtle Podocnemis erythrocephala (Testudines, Podocnemididae) in the Brazilian Amazon.
The genus Podocnemis comprises six living species, including P. erythrocephala (irapuca-red-headed river turtle). Data are available concerning the reproductive biology of the species of the genusExpand
Genetic components affecting embryonic developmental time of Drosophila melanogaster
The developmental time of the embryonic stage of Drosophila melanogaster was 21.66% faster and 14.75% slower than controls in populations selected for fast and slow developmental speed, respectively.Expand
Cytogenetic studies in Podocnemis expansa and Podocnemis sextuberculata (Testudines, Podocnemididae), turtles of the Brazilian Amazon
Abstract Cytogenetic studies were conducted with Podocnemis expansa and Podocnemis sextuberculata, tur- tles of the Brazilian Amazon, aimed at a better characterization of the chromosomes of theseExpand
Evidence of multiple paternal contribution in Podocnemis sextuberculata (Testudines: Podocnemididae) detected by microsatellite markers
Evidence of multiple paternity in Podocnemis sextuberculata (Testudines: Podocnemididae) detected by microsatellite markers. We found evidence of multiple paternity in a sample of 12 PodocnemisExpand
Population genetics analysis of Podocnemis sextuberculata (Testudines, Podocnemidae): lack of population structure in the central Amazon Basin.
The chelonians are, in general, important for the economy of the traditional populations of the Amazon region, especially as a source of animal protein. Furthermore, sub-products, such as eggs andExpand
Population Genetic Structure of the Threatened Amazon River Turtle, Podocnemis sextuberculata (Testudines, Podocnemididae)
Abstract Podocnemis sextuberculata (Pleurodira: Podocnemididae) is widely distributed throughout the Amazon drainage basin in Brazil, Colombia, and Peru. Telemetry and previous molecular data suggestExpand
