Potter, Sally; Deakin, Janine


Conservation uses information from genetics to assist in management decisions. However, conservation genetics typically assesses genetic diversity at the DNA level but this alone does not address all the risks associated with managing wild and captive populations. DNA is packaged into chromosomes.
