Abstract

Garrulax morrisonianus, an endemic avian species of Taiwan, inhabits evergreen forests at high elevations of 2,000-3,952 m. In this study, we developed 15 microsatellite primer pairs for genetic study. These markers were screened for 52 samples collected from wild populations of different geographical regions. The number of alleles ranged from 4 to 13. The expected (HE) and observed (HO) heterozygosities were 0.430-0.725 and 0.000-0.500, respectively. All loci were significantly deviated from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium due to the heterozygote deficiency.
