Fynbos fires may contribute to the maintenance of high genetic diversity in orange-breasted sunbirds (Anthobaphes violacea)
The maintenance of genetic diversity in populations is one of the key concerns in wildlife management. Levels of genetic diversity are partly determined by the evolutionary history of a population and partly by environmental ...
Long-distance dispersal maximizes evolutionary potential during rapid geographic range expansion
Conventional wisdom predicts that sequential founder events will cause genetic diver- sity to erode in species with expanding geographic ranges, limiting evolutionary potential at the range margin. Here, we show that ...
Reduced genetic diversity in Bearded Vultures Gypaetus barbatus in Southern Africa
(British Ornithologists' Union, 2015)
The Bearded Vulture Gypaetus barbatus occurs throughout its range in small and dwindling population fragments with limited genetic differentiation between populations, suggesting that the species might be managed as a ...
