We constructed a genomic DNA library enriched for CA repeat motifs in Eonycteris spelaea. Nine microsatellite loci were isolated and tested on a population of 39 samples from Yunnan Province, China. These nine loci had three to 22 alleles per locus. Observed and expected heterozygosity values ranged from 0.079 to 0.963 and from 0.078 to 0.959. Two loci revealed significant departure from Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium and no linkage disequilibrium was found between loci pairs. These microsatellites… Expand

Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci in the flat‐headed bat (Tylonycteris pachypus)
Microsatellite loci were developed in the flat-headed bat (Tylonycteris pachypus) from genomic DNA using an enriched library method and will be used to examine genetic structure and parentage analysis in this species. Expand
Biogeography of the Indonesian archipelago: mitochondrial DNA variation in the fruit bat, Eonycteris spelaea
Evidence that genetic distance between populations reflects geographic relationships, especially historical connectedness, as measured by Pleistocene sea-crossing distances is found, and at the microgeographic level, cave populations were heterogeneous and composed of diverse lineages suggesting restricted local interchange.

Relationships between morphology, genetics and geography in the cave fruit bat Eonycteris spelaea (Dobson, 1871) from Indonesia
Morphological and genetic analyses of Eonycteris spelaea from 15 islands along the Banda Arc, from Sumatra to Timor and including Kalimantan and Sulawesi, revealed considerable divergence betweenExpand
Microsatellites for ecologists: a practical guide to using and evaluating microsatellite markers.
This synthesis presents a multistep screening process to evaluate candidate loci for inclusion in a genetic study that is broadly targeted to both novice and experienced geneticists alike and aims to encourage the use and consistent reporting of thorough marker screening to ensure high quality data.

Seasonality and synchrony of reproduction in three species of nectarivorous Philippines bats
Three species of nectarivorous megachiropteran bats on Negros Island in the central Philippines follow an obligately seasonal pattern of reproductive timing with very little phenotypic plasticity, suggesting that these are useful methods for analyses of seasonality in wild populations of bats.
