Summary

These data consist of microsatellite genotype scores for all samples of Santa Ana sucker (Catostomus santaanae) used in the study. Scores represent the allele calls for each microsatellite locus (i.e. DNA fragment length containing the microsatellite repeats), with each locus containing two scores representing the two allele copies detected. Included are five tables: Full dataset (includes genotypes from all samples), Santa Clara River samples only (includes genotypes only from samples collected in the Santa Clara River), Convert File format key (explains the data file format), Population identifiers (translates the numerical population identifiers to actual collecting sites), CASA sampling points (one coordinate given for each general [...]

Purpose

We collected these data to examine the rangewide population genetic structure, measure genetic diversity and differentiation among populations, and identify sites that may represent introduced populations of the Santa Ana sucker Catostomus santaanae, an ICUN endangered species. These data provide key genetic information for informing recovery efforts.
