Keogh, J Scott; Scott, Ian; Fitzgerald, Mark; Shine, Richard

Description

The Australian elapid snake Hoplocephalus stephensii (Stephens' Banded Snake) is patchily distributed in disjunct forest remnants in eastern Australia and is listed as threatened in both states in which it occurs (Qld and NSW). Here we focus on the phylogeography of H. stephensii to address (1) the genetic distinctiveness of this taxon within its genus and (2) the level of genetic diversity present within and between disjunct populations from throughout the species' range. We sequenced an...[Show more]
