The utility of nuclear introns for investigating hybridization and genetic introgression: a case study involving Brachyramphus murrelets

Abstract

Interspecific hybridization can have importantconsequences for conservation, but can bedifficult to detect using morphologicalmarkers. To test the utility of nuclear intronsfor investigating hybridization and geneticintrogression, we analyzed variation in fivenuclear introns and the mitochondrialcytochrome b gene in two species ofseabirds that are declining… (More)
