Population structure and genetic diversity were examined using partial mitochondrial cytochrome b gene sequences of four wild, one reintroduced, and five captive populations of the endangered cyprinid Hemigrammocypris rasborella from three river systems in the easternmost region of the species’ range in Shizuoka Prefecture, central Honshu, Japan. We detected loss of genetic diversity from portions of the wild and captive populations, as well as suspected nonindigenous haplotypes in some captive… CONTINUE READING
