Genetic connectivity among swarming sites in the wide ranging and recently declining little brown bat (Myotis lucifugus)
Characterizing movement dynamics and spatial aspects of gene flow within a species permits inference on population structuring. As patterns of structuring are products of historical and currentExpand

Patterns of male reproductive success in a highly promiscuous whale species: the endangered North Atlantic right whale
Parentage analyses of baleen whales are rare, and although mating systems have been hypothesized for some species, little data on realized male reproductive success are available and the patterns ofExpand

Genetic analysis of 16th-century whale bones prompts a revision of the impact of Basque whaling on right and bowhead whales in the western North Atlantic
The North Atlantic right whale, Eubalaena glacialis (Muller, 1776), is one of the world's most endangered large cetaceans. It is widely believed that Basque whalers caused the most dramatic declineExpand

Assessment of population substructure in relation to summer feeding ground use in the eastern North Pacific gray whale
The eastern North Pacific gray whale Eschrichtius robustus was removed from the US Endangered Species List in 1994, and since then aboriginal groups in Washington (USA) and British Columbia (Canada)Expand

Evidence of a North Atlantic right whale Eubalaena glacialis mating ground
The location of mating grounds used by Endangered North Atlantic right whales Eubalaena glacialis has eluded discovery despite centuries of whaling and decades of marine mammal surveys. If thisExpand

Postcopulatory selection for dissimilar gametes maintains heterozygosity in the endangered North Atlantic right whale
Although small populations are expected to lose genetic diversity through genetic drift and inbreeding, a number of mechanisms exist that could minimize this genetic decline. Examples include mateExpand

Sources and Rates of Errors in Methods of Individual Identification for North Atlantic Right Whales
Abstract Many long-term studies of wildlife populations rely on individual identification based on natural markings or genetic profiling, or both. However, only rarely are these 2 independent dataExpand

Population Genetic Structure Within and among Seasonal Site Types in the Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus) and the Northern Long-Eared Bat (M. septentrionalis)
During late summer and early autumn, temperate bats migrate from their summering sites to swarming sites, where mating likely occurs. However, the extent to which individuals of a single summeringExpand

Procedures for optimizing the recovery of DNA from mammalian carcasses
Carcasses represent an important source of tissue for many studies, but there are few data regarding which tissues to collect, and how best to treat them. We compared the quantity and quality of DNAExpand
