Genetic (RAPD) diversity in Peromyscus maniculatus populations in a naturally fragmented landscape.

Abstract

We assessed the effects of long-term habitat fragmentation on genetic (random amplified polymorphic DNA) diversity in 11 Peromyscus maniculatus populations in the Lake Superior watershed. We analysed genetic structure at two spatial scales and the effect of island size and isolation on genetic diversity. At the regional scale, island populations differed… (More)
