High levels of genetic diversity and population structure in an endemic and rare species: Implications for conservation

The analysis of genetic structure and variability of isolated species is of critical importance in evaluating whether stochastic or human-caused factors are affecting rare species. Low genetic diversity compromises the ability of populations to evolve and reduces their chances of survival under environmental change. In a recent study published in AoB PLANTS, Turchetto et al. … Continue reading High levels of genetic diversity and population structure in an endemic and rare species: Implications for conservation
