Abstract

We isolated 56 common buzzard (Buteo buteo) microsatellite loci from (AC)n- and (AAAG)n-enriched genomic libraries. Eleven loci were tested on 90 individuals from Eastern Westphalia in Germany, yielding two to 17 alleles per locus (average 5.7) and expected heterozygosities ranging from 0.11 to 0.93 (average 0.53). These highly variable microsatellite markers provide a powerful means for investigating population genetic diversity in the common buzzard, a little-understood aspect of this widespread species.
