Molecular Evidence For High Levels of Intrapopulation Genetic Diversity in Woodrats (Neotoma Micropus).


Nucleotide sequences from the mitochondrial control region and genotypes from 5 nuclear microsatellite loci were used to examine genetic structure and infer recent (within approximately the last 3,000 years) evolutionary history of a population (549 individuals) of the southern plains woodrat (Neotoma micropus). Observed heterozygosity values ranged from 0… (More)
