The current range of wolverines (Gulo gulo) within the lower 48 states includes small, remnant populations in Idaho, Washington, Wyoming and Montana. The size and trend of each of these populations and connectivity to adjacent populations in the contiguous United States and Canada are poorly understood. In this study, levels of genetic diversity and population genetic structure were examined in three states (Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana) and two Canadian provinces (Alberta and British Columbia… Expand
