Aim We surveyed the genetic variability of deermice (genus Peromyscus) at the north-western edge of their range to test for occupancy in multiple, hypothesized ice-free regions during the late Pleistocene and explore post-glacial dynamics. Location North-western North America. Methods We used sequences from four independent nuclear and mitochondrial loci from 341 specimens of Peromyscus maniculatus, Peromyscus keeni and Peromyscus sp. (Yukon) to assess species limits, population structure, and demographical change as a result of historical climate change, using a Bayesian approach. Species distribution models were built in MaxEnt to explore the niche overlap amongst genetically distinct species. Results Divergence...
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.
