Landscape‐scale genetic variation in a forest outbreak species, the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae)
The mountain pine beetle Dendroctonus ponderosae is a native species currently experiencing large‐scale outbreaks in western North American pine forests. We sought to describe the pattern of geneticExpand

Three deeply divided lineages of the freshwater mussel genus Anodonta in western North America
The surprising diversity and recent dramatic decline of freshwater mussels in North America have been well documented, although inventory efforts to date have been concentrated in the eastern UnitedExpand

Development and characterization of sixteen microsatellite markers for the federally endangered species: Leptodea leptodon (Bivalvia: Unionidae) using paired-end Illumina shotgun sequencing
We isolated and characterized a total of 16 microsatellite loci in Leptodea leptodon. Loci were screened in 24 individuals from across the species current range in Missouri. The number of alleles perExpand

Incongruence between mtDNA and nuclear data in the freshwater mussel genus Cyprogenia (Bivalvia: Unionidae) and its impact on species delineation
Abstract Accurately identifying species is a crucial step for developing conservation strategies for freshwater mussels, one of the most imperiled faunas in North America. This study uses geneticExpand

Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci in the western pearlshell mussel, Margaritifera falcata (Gould)
Ten microsatellite loci were isolated from the western pearlshell, Margaritifera falcata (Gould, 1850) and characterized in populations from Washington and Montana, USA. We also assessed eightExpand

Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci in western North American Anodonta species
We have developed and characterized 13 microsatellite loci from a group of Anodonta species in western North America, and demonstrated their utility in populations representing two major clades inExpand

A comparison of genetic diversity and population structure of the endangered scaleshell mussel (Leptodea leptodon), the fragile papershell (Leptodea fragilis) and their host-fish the freshwater drum
The larvae of freshwater mussels in the order Unionoida are obligate parasites on fishes. Because adult mussels are infaunal and largely sessile, it is generally assumed that the majority of geneExpand

Genetic variation in freshwater mussels (Bivalvia: Unionidae) and its implications for species delineation and conservation
Dispersal ability and reproductive success are important criteria in determining whether a threatened or endangered species is capable of recovering from bottlenecks and catastrophic populationExpand
