Genetic Consequences of Population Reduction and Geographic Isolation in the Critically Endangered Frog , Rana sevosa

  title={Genetic Consequences of Population Reduction and Geographic Isolation in the Critically Endangered Frog , Rana sevosa},
  author={Stephen C. Richter and Brian I. Crother and Richard E. Broughton},
Anthropogenic habitat fragmentation and reduction are major causes of population declines and extinction. As these processes intensify, our ability to rescue imperiled taxa is critically dependent on an understanding of historical, demographic, and genetic parameters of diminishing populations. We assessed the effects of recent geographic isolation and population reduction on genetic variability for endangered Dusky Gopher Frogs, Rana sevosa. Only two populations of R. sevosa exist, each is… CONTINUE READING
