Chondrostoma lusitanicum is a Portuguese endemic cyprinid with a restricted distribution and reduced numbers in some basins, justifying its status as a threatened species. We examined genetic population structure using samples from throughout its geographical range in Portugal, using sequencing of b cytochrome and restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of the NADH subunits 5 and 6. There was reduced within-population genetic variability but considerable among-population… CONTINUE READING
