Abstract

We characterize five polymorphic microsatellite loci for the Great Plains toad, Bufo cognatus, which are being used as markers in a study of the genetics and structure of toad populations inhabiting playa lakes on the Llano Estacado plateau of Texas. Observed heterozygosity (HO) estimates for the toads ranged from 0.56 to 0.90, and expected heterozygosity (HE) estimates ranged from 0.85 to 0.95.
