Hawaiian Coot (Fulica alai) and Hawaiian Gallinule (Gallinula galeata sandvicensis) Microsatellite and Mitochondrial DNA Data, 2014-2016, Oahu, Kauai, and Molokai, Hawaii

October 15, 2018

This data set describes nuclear microsatellite genotypes derived from twenty-one autosomal loci (Fal02, Fal04, Fal07, Fal08, Fal10, Fal12, Fal14-1, Fal16, Fal 17, Fal19, Gch03, Gch06, Gch07, Gch12, Gch13, Gch14, Gch17, Gch19, Pho110, KiRa9 - 1, and KiRa10) and nucleotide sequence data derived from two mitochondrial DNA loci (control region and NADH dehydrogenase 2). Samples were collected on Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, Hawaii, United States of America. Samples used in the study originated from blood or feather samples collected in the field from live trapped birds or from tissue taken from dead birds or museum specimens according to each institution's load policies and procedures. We compared historical (samples collected in the late 1800s and early 1900s) and modern (collected in 2012-2015) populations.
