Genetic characterization of Western European noble crayfish populations (Astacus astacus) for advanced conservation management strategies


One central goal of conservation biology is to conserve the genetic diversity of species in order to protect their adaptive potential. The main objective of this study was to identify management units (MUs) for the threatened noble crayfish (Astacus astacus) in Western Europe by utilizing sequence and microsatellite analysis to determine populations in need… (More)
