Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci for Neothraupis fasciata, (Emberizidae, Passeriformes) with widely cross amplification in neotropical passerines.


We described the development and characterization of 16 microsatellite loci for the white-banded tanager (Neothraupis fasciata), a Neotropical passerine from Cerrado (Brazilian savanna). Based on 24 N. fasciata from a single population, we detected moderate to high number of alleles per locus (2-18 alelles) with expected heterozygosities ranging from 0.12… (More)
