    ABSTRACT: Abstract Ixobrychus flavicollis is the largest bittern in Ixobrychus which has very wide geographical range. In our results, the complete mitochondrial genome of I. flavicollis is 17,016 bp in length. Thirteen protein-coding genes, two rRNA genes, twenty-two tRNA genes and one non-coding region (D-loop) are present in this mitochondrial genome. No special arrangement when compared with other typical mitochondrial of vertebrates. The percentage of A and T (56.7%) was slightly higher than G and C.

    ABSTRACT: Fourteen novel polymorphic microsatellite markers were isolated and characterized for Muntiacus reevesi, a small deer species. An (AG)n enriched library was created from two individuals following the FIASCO protocol (Fast Isolation by AFLP of Sequences COtaining repeats). 14 primers were designed from 98 microsatellite sequences and tested in 32 samples. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 2 to 13 and the expected heterozygosities from 0.123 to 0.916. The loci had an average polymorphic information content value of 0.676. Five loci showed significant deviations from Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium and no linkage disequilibrium was detected. These markers should be a useful tool for further population genetic studies of Muntiacus reevesi.

    ABSTRACT: The giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) was taken to the brink of extinction in the 1980s through a combination of deforestation, large-scale loss of bamboo in the core of its range, poaching, and zoo collection, causing over 1000 deaths from the 1950s. It was thought that the drastic population decline was likely to impose a severe impact on population viability. Here, based on temporal genotyping of individuals, we show that this rapid decline did not significantly reduce the overall effective population size and genetic variation of this species, or of the two focal populations (Minshan and Qionglai) that declined the most. These results are contrary to previously assumptions, probably because the population decline has not produced the expected negative impact due to the short time scale involved (at most 10 generations), or because previous surveys underestimated the population size at the time of decline. However, if present-day habitat fragmentation and limited migration of giant pandas remains, we predict a loss of genetic diversity across the giant pandas' range in the near future. Thus, our findings highlight the substantial resilience of this species when facing demographic and environmental stochasticity, but key conservation strategies, such as enhancing habitat connectivity and habitat restoration should be immediately implemented to retain the extant genetic variation and maintain long-term evolutionary potential of this endangered species.
