Identifying areas at risk of invasion can be difficult when the distribution of a non-native species encompasses geographically disjunct regions. Understanding genealogical relationships among native and non-native populations can clarify the origins of fragmented distributions, which in turn can clarify how fast and far a non-native species may spread. We evaluated genetic variation across the native and invasive ranges of red shiner (Cyprinella lutrensis), a minnow known to displace and… CONTINUE READING
