Genetic diversity within species provides the raw material for adaptation and evolution. Just as regions of high species diversity are conservation targets, identifying regions containing high genetic diversity and divergence within and among populations may be important to protect future evolutionary potential. When multiple co-distributed species show(More)
Proton and oxygen-17 NMR relaxation rate (T1-1 and T2-1) data are presented for aqueous suspensions of dark-adapted chloroplasts. It is concluded from the dependence of the proton relaxation rates (PRR) upon Mn concentration that T1-1 and T2-1 are determined largely by the loosely bound Mn present in the chloroplast membranes. The frequency and temperature(More)
The North American deserts were impacted by both Neogene plate tectonics and Quaternary climatic fluctuations, yet it remains unclear how these events influenced speciation in this region. We tested published hypotheses regarding the timing and mode of speciation, population structure, and demographic history of the Mojave Fringe-toed Lizard (Uma scoparia),(More)
