Abstract

We isolated and characterized 17 microsatellite loci from the eastern fence lizard, Sceloporus undulatus. Loci were screened in 24 individuals of S. undulatus. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 8 to 22, observed heterozygosity ranged from 0.174 to 0.913, and the probability of identity values ranged from 0.008 to 0.1. These new loci provide tools for examining the population genetics of eastern fence lizards and for assessing the evolutionary impacts the invasive red imported fire ant has on the lizard.
