The Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (QTP) is a biodiversity hotspot, resulting from its geological history, contemporary environment and isolation. Uplift of the QTP and Quaternary climatic oscillations are hypothesised to have influenced the genetic diversity, population structure and dynamics of all QTP endemic species. In this study, we tested this hypothesis by(More)
Channa argus is one of the most important economic fish species in China. However, there is limited genetic information on its population structure and genetic diversity. Nineteen novel polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized in 42 individuals from one natural population collected from the Poyang Lake in Jiangxi Province. The number(More)
Major threats to freshwater fish diversity now include loss of native genetic diversity as a consequence of translocations of fishes between sites and from hatcheries to sites, and small effective population sizes resulting from overfishing and/or habitat loss. Ten polymorphic microsatellite markers were employed to evaluate genetic diversity, population(More)
Twenty-three polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated from Schizothorax macropogon and were characterized in 42 individuals collected from the Yarlung Tsangpo River in Tibet, China. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 5 to 32 with an average of 20.17. The expected heterozygosity and Shannon-Wiener diversity index ranged from 0.709 to 0.951 and(More)
