Microsatellite as well as sequence analysis of the mitochondrial control region were applied to infer phylogeography and population genetic structure of the saker falcon (Falco cherrug). Furthermore, we compared the patterns of mitochondrial haplotypes with the variation of microsatellite alleles among the species of the hierofalcon complex (F. cherrug,(More)
The Okinawa woodpecker Sapheopipo noguchii is the rarest extant woodpecker species. The monotypic genus Sapheopipo was considered to be a representative of an old lineage of woodpeckers that led to the Eurasian genera Picus and the Blythipicus–Gecinulus species. This view, based on similarities in color patterns, external morphology and foraging behavior,(More)
Thirty-seven populations of Norway spruce [Picea abies (L.) Karst.] across the Austrian Alps and Bohemian Massif were sampled to elucidate the geographical pattern of genetic differentiation. Three polymorphic mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) loci were surveyed. Two or three alleles were detected at each locus, resulting in seven multilocus mtDNA haplotypes (A–F).(More)
