Microsatellite data formatted for the software CONVERT, which includes dataset numerical IDs, sampling site names, and locus identifiers. Rows 291-294 provides information about the allele size ranges and repeat motif for each locus. Missing data are coded as ?.
Microsatellite STRUCTURE input file that corresponds with the samples in the ‘refSampleLoc’ worksheet. Missing data are coded as -999.
The recency of large-scale land conversion in California’s San Joaquin Desert raises the probability that the region’s numerous endemic species still retain genetic signatures of historical population connectivity. If so, genomic data can serve as a guidance tool for conserving lands that once supported habitat for gene movement. We studied the genetic structuring of the endangered blunt-nosed leopard lizard Gambelia sila, a San Joaquin Desert endemic, to (1) test whether patterns of population admixture could be used to delimit former habitat corridors in the pre-converted landscape, (2) evaluate whether restriction site associated DNA sequencing (RADseq) from a subset of samples can resolve structure at the same...

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact
