Microsatellite markers for Pholidoptera griseoaptera

Twelve novel polymorphic microsatellite loci have been developed for the dark bush cricket Pholidoptera griseoaptera. All loci are polymorphic, with up to 37 alleles per locus. These molecular marekrs will be useful tools to study the influence of landscape structure and land-use intensity in agricultural landscapes on genetic diversity within and among populations of Pholidoptera griseoaptera.

The markers have been applied within the project for the study of Pholidoptera griseoaptera populations in two LTSs (Landscape Study Sites) in Switserland and Belgium (Diekötter et al., submitted).

In addition, the markers are being published:
