Isolation and characterization of microsatellite DNA markers in the Greater Roadrunner (Geococcyx californianus) Academic Article uri icon


  • We report the development of eight polymorphic microsatellite loci for the Greater Roadrunner (Geococcyx californianus), a terrestrial cuckoo distributed in the US Southwest and Mexico. These markers will be useful for population genetics and molecular ecology studies of this bird. 2012 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
