Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markersreveal extra-pair parentage in a bird species: the bluethroat(Luscinia svecica)

Bluethroat (Luscinia svecica) Science Article 15


We tested the use of amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) to assess the frequencyof extra-pair parentage in a bluethroat (Luscinia svecica namnetum) population.Thirty-six families totalling 162 nestlings were analysed. Using a combination of threeprimer pairs, we reached an exclusion probability of 93% for the population.
