There is little solid evidence for specific genetic adaptations in animal populations native to high altitude. There is also continuing debate over what oxygen transport characteristics are truly adaptive at high altitude. We have attempted to elucidate both problems through population genetic and physiological studies of the deer mouse, Peromyscus maniculatus. That species is noteworthy because it inhabits the widest range of altitudes of any North American mammal, and it shows a high degree… CONTINUE READING
