Highly variable loci can provide insight into the recognition of species, evolutionarily significant units (ESUs) and management units (MUs). In general, the ESU and MU categories are thought to be reflective of adaptive differences between them. Here we examine this premise by presenting a comprehensive examination of genetic variation for both microsatellite loci and a major histocompatibility complex (MHC) locus, thought to be of adaptive significance, in the endangered Sonoran topminnow… CONTINUE READING
