Cladocora caespitosa is a reef-building zooxanthellate scleractinian coral in the Mediterranean Sea. Mortality events have recurrently affected this species during the last decade. Thus, knowledge of its genetic structure, population diversity, and connectivity is needed to accomplish suitable conservation plans. In order to obtain a better understanding of(More)
Microsatellite loci were isolated for the first time for the deep-sea coral Desmophyllum dianthus, using 454 GS-FLX Titanium pyrosequencing. We developed conditions for amplifying 24 markers in 10 multiplex reactions. Three to 16 alleles per locus were detected across 25 samples analyzed from Santa Maria di Leuca coral province (Mediterranean Sea). For the(More)
Twelve polymorphic microsatellite loci were characterized in order to investigate an extreme case of microgeographical variation in an island-dwelling passerine (Zosterops borbonicus). Variation was examined in two distinct natural populations of 27 individuals each. The loci displayed 5–20 alleles, with observed heterozygosities ranging between 0.33 and(More)
In recent years, several types of molecular markers and new microscale skeletal characters have shown potential as powerful tools for phylogenetic reconstructions and higher-level taxonomy of scleractinian corals. Nonetheless, discrimination of closely related taxa is still highly controversial in scleractinian coral research. Here we used newly sequenced(More)
Microsatellite loci (26 in total) were isolated for the first time for the entocommensal nemertean Malacobdella arrokeana, using 454 GS-FLX Titanium pyrosequencing. We developed conditions for amplifying these markers in 8 multiplex and 5 individual reactions. One to 14 alleles were detected per locus across 25 samples analyzed from San Matías Gulf,(More)
In this work, we compare morphological and molecular data in their ability to distinguish between species of water mites (Acari, Prostigmata, Hydrachnidia). We have focused on the two species of the genus Lebertia inhabiting the island of Madeira. While traditional morphological traits were initially sufficient to distinguish between these two species, the(More)
The limpet Patella ferruginea is one of the most endangered marine invertebrates on western Mediterranean rocky shores. We have isolated and characterised 11 polymorphic microsatellites markers to provide new tools to investigate genetic structure and gather information necessary for the proper management of this severely threatened species. The number of(More)

In the present study we used the high-throughput sequencing technology Illumina MiSeq to develop 26 polymorphic microsatellite loci for the marine snail Gibbula divaricata. Four to 32 alleles were detected per locus across 30 samples analyzed. Observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.130 to 0.933 and from 0.294 to 0.956, respectively. No(More)
New data for Carinina ochracea Sundberg et al., 2009 are provided for the Iberian Peninsula, establishing the southernmost limit of its known distribution. This species was previously known from only two localities: the type locality in Tjärnö (Sweden) and Pouldohan (Brittany, France). The material examined here was obtained during a faunal survey in the(More)
