Description

Assessing levels of genetic diversity, connectivity and historical demography for threatened species provides important information for conservation management. We used a combination of the mitochondrial ND4 gene and seven microsatellite markers to examine both historical and recent population genetic structure and demography of the threatened alpine she-oak skink, Cyclodomorphus praealtus. This species is restricted to the "sky islands" of the Australian alpine region. Based on mtDNA, the New...[Show more]
