Abstract

© 2020 Chelonian Research Foundation. Studies of mud and musk turtles (family Kinosternidae) are underrepresented in the primary turtle literature, particularly with regard to their population genetics. We have isolated microsatellite loci for Sternotherus carinatus, a first for any species in the family, and tested their ability to cross-amplify in 5 other kinosternids. These loci should provide a useful set of tools for future population genetic studies of kinosternid species.
