Invasive species are predicted to suffer from reductions in genetic diversity during founding events, reducing adaptive potential. [...] Key Method We reviewed studies of 80 species of animals, plants, and fungi that quantified nuclear molecular diversity within introduced and source populations. Overall, there were significant losses of both allelic richness and heterozygosity in introduced populations, and large gains in diversity were rare. Evidence for multiple introductions was associated with increased…Expand
