Creating new evolutionary pathways through bioinvasion: the population genetics of brushtail possums in New Zealand

Sarre, Stephen; Aitken, Nicola; Adamack, Aaron T.; Macdonald, Anna J; Gruber, Bernd; Cowan, Phil


Rapid increases in global trade and human movement have created novel mixtures of organisms bringing with them the potential to rapidly accelerate the evolution of new forms. The common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula), introduced into New Zealand from Australia in the 19th century, is one such species having been sourced from multiple populations in its native range. Here, we combine microsatellite DNA- and GIS-based spatial data to show that T. vulpecula originating from at least two...[Show more]
