Abstract: In order to study the population genetic structure of the Amazonian understorey bird Glyphorynchus spirurus, we have isolated eight polymorphic microsatellite loci using next-generation sequencing. All loci were screened using 40 samples from central Amazonia. The number of alleles varied from five to 22. The observed heterozygosities ranged from 0.475 to 0.875. No linkage disequilibrium was found among the loci. None of the loci showed significant deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. These novel microsatellite markers will be a useful tool for future population genetics and ecological studies of the Wedge-billed Woodcreeper.
