Abstract

Twenty-two nuclear microsatellite loci were isolated from a genomic DNA library derived from Madagascar’s Rousettus madagascariensis. Marker characteristics were determined from a single population (37 individuals) from Fort Dauphin (southeastern Madagascar). Sixteen of the 22 loci were within Hardy–Weinberg expectations. These loci are highly informative with polymorphic information content values ranging between 0.757 and 0.916. These loci will provide valuable information for the study of population genetics and gene flow within this species of bats. Due to the dramatic reduction and alteration of their habitat, data generated utilizing this marker suite will potentially provide additional information for the effective long-term management of this near-threatened bat species.
