Abstract/Summary Questions of population identification and gene flow have become more important in the conservation and management of crocodilians. Additionally there has long been an interest in understanding crocodilian mating systems. To address such questions we designed nuclear microsatellite markers from the DNA of C. acutus, C. porosus and C. johnstoni. We report on the development and testing of 26 new microsatellite loci for Crocodylus spp., which represent the first microsatellite loci found in Crocodylus.
