Isolation and characterization of a new suite of microsatellite markers in the European White Stork, Ciconia ciconia

Tijdschriftbijdrage - Tijdschriftartikel

The White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) has an extensive European breeding distribution. There have been significant demographic changes since the 1930s, with country-specific extinctions throughout the western distribution since the mid-1940s. Following various reintroduction programs significant concerns have been raised about the geographic origins of introduced storks, and the effect this may have on individual biology, particularly breeding success. Here we report on seven new microsatellite markers developed for C. ciconia that have been successfully combined in a series of multiplex PCR's with six markers previously described for the Wood Stork.
