Population genetic structure and colonisation history of the tool-using New Caledonian crow

Abdelkrim, Jawad; Hunt, Gavin R.; Gray, Russell D.; Gemmell, Neil J.


New Caledonian crows exhibit considerable variation in tool making between populations. Here, we present the first study of the species' genetic structure over its geographical distribution. We collected feathers from crows on mainland Grande Terre, the inshore island of Toupéti, and the nearby island of Maré where it is believed birds were introduced after European colonisation. We used nine microsatellite markers to establish the genotypes of 136 crows from these islands and classical...[Show more]
