Freshwater molluscs are globally critically threatened, yet little is known about their genetic diversity. We describe the isolation and characterization of the first microsatellite markers for the European swan mussel, Anodonta cygnea. Nine loci were polymorphic in a panel of 110 individuals from seven German and Estonian populations. Number of alleles ranged from 2 to 14 and heterozygosity levels ranged from 0.021 to 0.498 for H o and from 0.069 to 0.634 for H e. Deficiency of heterozygous… CONTINUE READING
