  • GENE FLOW AMONG PACIFIC HARBOR SEALS IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA by Michele Maria Conrad A fragment of the mitochondrial DNA control region was sequenced in 96 harbor seals (Phoca vitulina richardii) from Northern California. This sequence was combined with previously published sequence data from Oregon for analysis in order to investigate female gene flow and detect the presence of genetic population substructure in harbor seal populations throughout this region. Geographic partitioning was not… CONTINUE READING
