Monitoring age-related trends in genomic diversity of Australian lungfish

Schmidt, Daniel J.; Fallon, Stewart; Roberts, David T; Espinoza, Thomas; McDougall, Andrew; Brooks, Steven; Kind, Peter; Bond, Nick R; Kennard, Mark; Hughes, Jane Margaret


An important challenge for conservation science is to detect declines in intraspecific diversity so that management action can be guided towards populations or species at risk. The lifespan of Australian lungfish (Neoceratodus forsteri) exceeds 80 years, and human impacts on breeding habitat over the last half century may have impeded recruitment, leaving populations dominated by old postreproductive individuals, potentially resulting in a small and declining breeding population. Here, we...[Show more]
