Microsatélites revelan heterocigosidad y estructura poblacional de murciélagos vampiro (Desmodus rotundus) (Quiróptera: Phyllostomidae) de México

Abstract: A limited number of studies have focused on the population genetic structure of vampire bats (Desmodus rotundus) in America. This medium-sized bat is distributed in tropical areas of the continent with high prevalence in forested livestock areas. The aim of this work was to characterize the vampire population structure and their genetic differentiation. For this, we followed standard methods by which live vampires (caught by mist-netting) and preserved material from scientific collections, were obtained for a … Show more

“…The ubiquity of sex-biased dispersal in animals suggests sex-biased pathogen spread could widely influence the distribution and invasion dynamics of emerging diseases. Prior population genetic studies concluded that the low vagility and small home range sizes of vampire bats generate high genetic differentiation among populations (12,13). However, genetic lineages of VBRV are geographically widespread, implying that the virus overcomes the genetic isolation of its host through a currently unidentified dispersal mechanism (14,15).…”

“…Standard measures for our microsatellites may have important implications in the evolutionary biology of the target species, because they can be used to develop conservation strategies for Neotropical bats. Highly informative microsatellites have been used to assess genetic diversity in a broad range of bat populations and to propose measures for conservation (i.e., Rossiter et al, 2000; Romero-Nava, León-Paniagua & Ortega, 2014; Korstian, Hale & Williams, 2015). …”

“…Romero-Nava et al (2014) used a subset of seven of 12 microsatellite loci used in the current study to analyze the genetic diversity of D. rotundus from 15 states across Mexico. One locality overlapped our sampling area, where they collected 12 bats from Ciudad Valles, San Luis Potosí(Figure 1).…”

“…Romero-Nava et al (2014) used a subset of seven of 12 microsatellite loci used in the current study to analyze the genetic diversity of D. rotundus from 15 states across Mexico. They found notably low levels of allelic richness and genetic diversity at this location relative to the others sampled Romero-Nava et al (2014).
