Distribution and population genetic structure of the critically endangered skink Nangura spinosa, and the implications for management

Borsboom, Adrian C.; Couper, Patrick J.; Amey, Andrew; Hoskin, Conrad


Many threatened species occur as small, isolated populations. Understanding the extent and genetic distinctiveness of these populations is essential for management. Nangura spinosa is a critically endangered skink known from two small populations in dry rainforest in south-east Queensland. We conducted targeted surveys between 2001 and 2010 at the two known N. spinosa sites (Nangur National Park, Oakview National Park area) and in 22 nearby forest blocks with potentially suitable habitat.
