To examine the effect of habitat connectivity on the genetic differentiation in the frequently selling gastropod Chondrina avenacea we assessed RAPD profiles in 12 subpopulations from continuous cliffs and in 12 subpopulations from small, naturally fragmented cliffs in the Swiss Jura mountains. Subpopulations of C. avenacea on continuous cliffs showed a smaller number of polymorphic RAPD loci and a lower gene diversity (Nei`s h = 0.049) than subpopulations on fragmented cliffs (h = 0.078… CONTINUE READING
