Allozyme variation at 35 gene loci is investigated in 161 specimens of the uniparental Caucasian lizard Lacerta dahli from several locations in Armenia and Georgia. All individuals are heterozygotic at 12 loci, and homozygotic at 21 loci. Variation at two loci results in five uniparental clones. One clone is widespread whereas four are geographically restricted and are represented by only one or two individuals. Because successful formation of uniparental clones is rare, and because the… CONTINUE READING
