Table 3 Summary of the ten microsatellite loci.

  1. K6, K16, K31, K32, K67 and K71 were first described in the black-legged kittiwake [59]), whereas RBG20, RBG27, RBG29 and RBG39 were sequenced from the red-billed gull, Larus novaehollandiae scopulinus [60]). Hexp and Hobs are the expected and observed heterozygosities computed by GENEPOP, and we give also the p-value the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium test (after Bonferroni correction for multiple tests).
