- ... Genetic analyses can facilitate large-scale conservation planning for wide-ranging species capable of long-distance dispersal. Bobcats (Lynx rufus) are the most broadly distributed native felid in North America, and are managed on a “state-by-state” basis. Little is known about the distribution of genetic diversity across bobcats’ range. We examined genetic differentiation among bobcats from throu ...

- ... Assessing the genetic consequences of habitat fragmentation is a crucial step in conservation planning for species in endangered habitats. We tested for the impact of natural habitat fragmentation on gene flow and genetic diversity in seven northern breeding locations of the sagebrush Brewer's sparrow, Spizella breweri breweri. Genetic analyses using five highly variable DNA microsatellite loci su ...
