The effective control of invasive mammals, because of their potentially high dispersive capacity, demands an understanding of spatial patterns of gene flow leading to the designation of population units for systematic eradication. Nutria, or coypu (Myocastor coypus), are large, semi-aquatic rodents, originally exported from their native South America for the value of their fur, and are now considered pests on many continents due to overgrazing of wetlands. This study was aimed at assessing the… CONTINUE READING
