The cave swallow (Petrochelidon fulva) is a polytypic species with isolated populations in northwestern South America, southwestern North America, Yucatan, Greater Antilles, and Florida. We compared microsatellite genotypes of at least five individuals each from five populations and cytochrome b sequence data of two individuals each from seven populations plus two outgroups. Microsatellite allelic diversity was substantial, and the North American populations were about equally variable. In… CONTINUE READING
