Fourteen new microsatellite markers for the Visayan tarictic hornbill (Penelopides panini) and their cross-species applicability among other endangered Philippine hornbills

  • Fourteen microsatellite markers were isolated and characterized for the endangered Visayan tarictic hornbill (Penelopides panini, Aves: Bucerotidae). In an analysis of 76 individuals, the number of alleles per locus varied from one to 12. Expected and observed heterozygosity ranged from 0.00 to 0.87 and from 0.00 to 0.89, respectively. All primers also amplify microsatellite loci in Luzon tarictic hornbill (Penelopides manillae), Mindanao tarictic hornbill (Penelopides affinis), the critically endangered Walden's hornbill (Aceros waldeni) and the near-threatened writhed hornbill (Aceros leucocephalus). Two loci which are monomorphic in P. panini were found polymorphic in at least one of the other species. These 14 new microsatellite markers specifically developed for two genera of Philippine hornbills, in combination with those already available for the hornbill genera Buceros and Bucorvus, comprise a reasonable number of loci to genetically analyse wild and captive populations of these and probably other related, often endangeredFourteen microsatellite markers were isolated and characterized for the endangered Visayan tarictic hornbill (Penelopides panini, Aves: Bucerotidae).
