Abstract

The dataset consists of 9 microsatellite markers used to analyze reticulated flatwoods salamanders' (Ambystoma bishopi) population structure on Eglin AFB. Samples came from various breeding ponds and allele sizes were scored using GeneMapper (GeneMapper v4.0; Applied Biosystems). Data was collected via allele scoring in GeneMapper by two independent researchers. Allele sizes for each individual have been re-formatted for various programs using the microsatellite Add-in in Excel as well as by using the GenAlEx extension in Excel. 

Usage Notes

Missing data for microsatellites are indicated with either a blank space or -. 

Within the flatwoods_larvae_9microsat file, individual names consist of the pond in which the individual was captured (i.e. onetwelve = pond 112) followed by a unique numerical ID number

Within the flatwoods_larvae_9microsat_GenAlEx file, individual names consist of the breeding season in which the individual was captured (F13 = 2013-2014 breeding season, F15 = 2015-2016 breeding season ) followed by the life stage at which the individual was caught (L = larvae, M = metamorph) followed by a unique numerical ID number
