Restricted gene flow in the endangered pygmy bluetongue lizard ( Tiliqua adelaidensis ) in a fragmented agricultural landscape

Smith, Annabel; Gardner, Michael; Fenner, Aaron L.; Bull, C. Michael

Description

Habitat fragmentation can have several adverse genetic impacts on populations. Assessing the extent of these threatening processes is essential in conservation management. In the present study, we investigated the genetic population structure of the endangered pygmy bluetongue lizard, Tiliqua adelaidensis, which is now restricted to a few small fragments of its previously more extensive grassland habitat. The aim of our study was to investigate genetic diversity and gene flow both among and...[Show more]
