We studied Thomomys bottae pocket gophers from 1979 to 1982 to determine if the amount of gene flow between local populations was sufficient to reduce allele frequency differences between them. Dispersal was quantified using three different trap techniques, and genetic changes in the population were monitored using protein variants. Additional allele frequency data were available for 1976 and 1977. We observed dispersal to be common in pre-reproductive juvenile females throughout the breeding… CONTINUE READING
