  • Dispersal ability and reproductive success are important criteria in determining whether a threatened or endangered species is capable of recovering from bottlenecks and catastrophic population declines. The goal of this dissertation is to understand patterns of population genetic variation and population connectivity (i.e. gene flow), and their implications for the conservation of freshwater mussels (Bivalvia: Unionidae). I generated mitochondrial DNA sequence data and nuclear microsatellite… CONTINUE READING
