Abstract Thirteen polymorphic microsatellite markers
were developed in the North American ground skink,
Scincella lateralis, for use in landscape and population
genetic research. Loci were genotyped for a sample of 37
lizards from southeastern Louisiana. The number of alleles
per locus ranged from 5 to 25 and observed heterozygosity
ranged from 0.23 to 0.97. The high levels of polymorphism
observed in these loci will be useful for a variety of
applications.
