Abstract

Eighteen polymorphic microsatellite DNA loci were isolated in the Central European subspecies of the European Dipper (Cinclus cinclus aquaticus). The loci were tested for polymorphism using a test panel of 24 breeding birds. Numbers of alleles ranged from 2 to 21 per locus and expected heterozygosities varied between 0.47 and 0.83. Two loci (Cici10 and Cici12) proved to be Z-linked. Some pairs of loci exhibited significant linkage disequilibrium but not the two loci that are located on the Z-chromosome. This pattern suggests that demographic effects rather than physical linkage are likely responsible for the observed levels of linkage disequilibrium. These loci will be useful for applied conservation projects and for investigations of the dispersal and mating patterns of European and other dippers.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
