We conducted a phylogeographic analysis of the strictly aquatic and critically endangered Central American river turtle, Dermatemys mawii, as part of a conservation management program for the species. We sampled 238 individuals from 15 different localities throughout the species range. Using sequence fragments from the mtDNA Cyt b and ND4 genes, we identified 16 different haplotypes. Overall, our results reveal a signal of phylogeographic structure throughout the range, which appears to have… CONTINUE READING
