Abstract

Fourteen nuclear microsatellite loci were isolated from a genomic DNA library derived from a free-ranging bamboo lemur (Hapalemur griseus griseus) from Ranomafana National Park, Madagascar. Expected and observed heterozygosity levels were determined for populations of bamboo lemurs from Ranomafana National Park and a nonprotected area near Tsinjoarivo, Madagascar. Although genotype frequencies for all but one marker were within Hardy-Weinberg expectations for the Tsinjoarivo population, this was not the case for the Ranomafana samples. It is probable that the deviation of genotype frequencies from Hardy-Weinberg expectations in Ranomafana was precipitated by the presence of two taxa within the sample population.
