Microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA assessment of population structure and stocking effects in Arctic charr

  title={Microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA assessment of population structure and stocking effects in Arctic charr},
  author={P C Brunner and Marlis R. Douglas and Louis Bernatchez},
Despite geographical isolation and widespread phenotypic polymorphism, previous population genetic studies of Arctic charr, Salvelinus alpinus, have detected low levels of intraand interpopulation variation. In this study, two approaches were used to test the generality of low genetic diversity among 15 Arctic charr populations from three major drainages of the central Alpine region of Europe. First, a representative subsample of each drainage was screened by PCR–RFLP analysis of mtDNA using 31… CONTINUE READING
