Rescue of a severely bottlenecked wolf (Canis lupus) population by a single immigrant
The fragmentation of populations is an increasingly important problem in the conservation of endangered species. Under these conditions, rare migration events may have important effects for theExpand

SNPs in ecological and conservation studies: a test in the Scandinavian wolf population
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have the potential to become the genetic marker of choice in studies of the ecology and conservation of natural populations because of their capacity to accessExpand

DNA footprints of European hedgehogs, Erinaceus europaeus and E. concolor: Pleistocene refugia, postglacial expansion and colonization routes
European hedgehogs, Erinaceus europaeus and E. concolor, are among the many European plant and animal taxa that have been subjected to cyclical restriction to glacial refugia and interglacialExpand

MHC class II genes in European wolves: a comparison with dogs
Abstract. The genome of the grey wolf, one of the most widely distributed land mammal species, has been subjected to both stochastic factors, including biogeographical subdivision and populationExpand

Fission–fusion dynamics in wild giraffes may be driven by kinship, spatial overlap and individual social preferences
Many species exhibit fission-fusion dynamics, yet the factors that influence the frequent changes in group size and membership in these species have not been widely studied. Social ties may beExpand

The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) has an integral role in the immune system, and hence diversity at its genes may be of particular importance for the health of populations. In largeExpand

Genetic variation and structuring in the threatened koala populations of Southeast Queensland
Habitat fragmentation can act to cause reproductive isolation between conspecifics and undermine species’ persistence, though most studies have reported the genetic condition of populations that haveExpand

Identification of a mutation in the para-sodium channel gene of the cattle tick Rhipicephalus microplus associated with resistance to flumethrin but not to cypermethrin.
A mutation in the domain II S4-5 linker region of the para-sodium channel gene has been associated previously with synthetic pyrethroid (SP) resistance in the cattle tick (Rhipicephalus microplus) inExpand

Genes of domestic mammals augmented by backcrossing with wild ancestors.
Both archaeological data and the presence of few mitochondrial DNA lineages suggest that most widespread domestic mammals (cattle, sheep, goats, pigs and dogs) derive from only a handful ofExpand
