Abstract

We characterize eight polymorphic microsatellite loci for the San Esteban chuckwalla, Sauromalus varius, which are being used as markers in a study of the genetic results from a decade of captive breeding in this endangered species. Observed heterozygosity estimates for S. varius ranged from 0.00 to 0.30, whereas expected heterozygosity estimates ranged from 0.06 to 0.58.
