Genetic variation at allozyme and mitochondrialDNA loci was investigated in the Australianlungfish, Neoceratodus forsteri Krefft1870. Tissue samples for genetic analysis weretaken non-lethally from 278 individualsrepresenting two spatially distinct endemicpopulations (Mary and Burnett rivers), as wellas one population thought to be derived from ananthropogenic translocation in the 1890's(Brisbane river). Two of 24 allozyme lociresolved from muscle tissue were polymorphic.Mitochondrial DNA… Expand
