Population genetic structure and diversity of the Apennine endemic stream frog, Rana italica--insights on the Pleistocene evolutionary history of the Italian peninsular biota.


For most species in the Western Palaearctic region, southern Mediterranean peninsulas have been identified as major Quaternary refugia and hotspots of intraspecific diversity, and thus, as areas of particular relevance for the conservation of the evolutionary potential. We analysed the patterns of geographical variation among 26 populations of the Italian… (More)
