We describe the isolation and characterization of eight polymorphic microsatellite loci for the endemic New Zealand alpine parrot Kea (Nestor notabilis). The loci were initially tested for eight individuals collected across the range and then for a larger dataset of 410 individuals. The number of alleles per loci ranged from 2 to 11. These new(More)
The impact of population bottlenecks is an important factor to consider when assessing species survival. Population declines can considerably limit the evolutionary potential of species and make them more susceptible to stochastic events. New Zealand has a well documented history of decline of endemic avifauna related to human colonization. Here, we(More)
