Sharp declines in population size, known as genetic bottlenecks, increase the level of inbreeding and reduce genetic diversity threatening population sustainability in both short- and long-term. We evaluated the presence, severity and approximate time of bottlenecks in 34 European grayling (Thymallus thymallus) populations covering the majority of the species distribution using microsatellite markers. We identified footprints of population decline in all grayling populations using the M ratio… CONTINUE READING
