In many areas, the management of overexploited populations of brown hare (Lepus europaeus) is based on annual restocking. While in some cases exotic hares are introduced, in some others hares are captured locally within protected areas and subsequently released into hunting grounds. We evaluated the genetic effects of this management regime in an Italian province where the brown hare population has recovered in the last few decades, by sequencing the hypervariable domain 1 of the mitochondrial… CONTINUE READING
