Numbers of the critically endangered hairy marron Cherex tenuimanus are declining rapidly in its natural habitat, mainly due to competition with smooth marron C. cainii. To determine whether genetic introgression is occurring between the two species we isolated 13 new polymorphic microsatellite markers from C. cainii using 454 shotgun sequencing. The loci(More)
Hybridization and genetic introgression following the introduction of exotic species can pose a significant threat to the survival of geographically restricted species. A remnant population of the critically endangered freshwater crayfish Cherax tenuimanus in the upper reaches of the Margaret River in southwestern Australia is under threat following the(More)
