Abstract

We developed 37 great gray owl (Strix nebulosa) microsatellite primers from CA and TAGA enriched genomic libraries. Primers were tested in 15 great gray owls from California, USA and Alberta, Canada as well as two other Strix species, spotted owl (S. occidentalis) and barred owl (S. varia). These markers will have broad application in investigations of Strix population structure and genetic diversity.
