The population structure of pond-breeding amphibians is shaped by their distinct breeding foci, but it is unclear to what extent this is reflected in the fine-scale distribution of genetic diversity. We used microsatellite genotypes to investigate the genetic signatures of 24 populations of European newts, Triturus cristatus and T. marmoratus, inhabiting 21 ponds in a confined study area (7.5 × 3.5 km) in western France. Employing a Bayesian clustering approach based on individual genotypes… CONTINUE READING
