Spatial genetic structure and clonal diversity of island populations of lady's slipper (Cypripedium calceolus) from the Biebrza National Park (northeast Poland)
Three populations of the rare and endangered plant species Cypripedium calceolus were included in a study of genetic diversity and spatial genetic structure in the Biebrza National Park, northeast
High mitochondrial DNA diversity of an introduced alien carnivore: comparison of feral and ranch American mink Neovison vison in Poland
TLDR
American mink in Poland exhibit high genetic diversity and originate from different source populations of their native range, which may have increased the fitness of individuals and accelerated the invasiveness of this species.
The importance of genetic variability and population differentiation in the Eurasian lynx Lynx lynx for conservation, in the context of habitat and climate change
TLDR
This review provides evidence that the lynx is undergoing significant genetic differentiation, due to several factors, and suggests that to enable better planning of conservation programmes for the Eurasian lynx, researchers should identify the Evolutionarily Significant Units among its populations, using different classes of molecular markers.
Evolution of the common shrew Sorex araneus: chromosomal and molecular aspects
TLDR
The molecular data challenge traditional models for the fixation of chromosomal variants, provide new insights into the manner of spread of such variants once they are formed and allow in-depth analysis of gene exchange between karyotypic races.
The evolutionary history of the two karyotypic groups of the common shrew, Sorex araneus, in Poland
TLDR
The data on the cytochrome b gene variability support the hypothesis assuming the Robertsonian fusions having spread into an ancestral acrocentric distribution, and give no evidence for a recent bottleneck after the process of post-Pleistocene recolonization of Poland by the shrews.
Long-Range Gene Flow and the Effects of Climatic and Ecological Factors on Genetic Structuring in a Large, Solitary Carnivore: The Eurasian Lynx
TLDR
Eurasian lynx are capable of maintaining panmictic populations across eastern Europe unless they are severely limited by habitat continuity or a reduction in numbers, and different correlations of mtDNA and microsatellite population divergence patterns with climatic and ecological factors may suggest separate selective pressures acting on males and females in this solitary carnivore.
A Hybrid Zone Between Two Chromosome Races of the Common Shrew, Sorex Araneus, in Eastern Poland: Preliminary Results
TLDR
The sharp change in frequencies of diagnostic metdcentrics across the railtrack showed that it was a strong barrier to migration of the shrews, and it is difficult to say whether there is any mechanism enhancing fertility in the hybrid populations.
Analysis of molecular differentiation in a hybrid zone between chromosomally distinct races of the common shrew Sorex araneus (Insectivora: Soricidae) suggests their common ancestry
TLDR
It was found that genetic differentiation between the Drnholec and Bialowieza races was weak and nonsignificant with respect to all molecular markers, however, these results are in contrast with the chromosomal structure of this hybrid zone.
High levels of population differentiation in Eurasian lynx at the edge of the species' western range in Europe revealed by mitochondrial DNA analyses
TLDR
The patterns of genetic diversity and differentiation suggested a number of discrete populations that are poorly connected by contemporary gene flow and could therefore be considered demographically independent and suggestions for active conservation/management decisions including translocations or reintroductions of lynx are provided.
