Local genetic structure in red grouse (Lagopus lagopus scoticus): evidence from microsatellite DNA markers

Willow Ptarmigan (Lagopus lagopus) Science Article 11

abstract

Allelic variation at seven hypervariable tri- and tetranucleotide microsatellite loci was used to determine levels of population differentiation between 14 populations of red grouse (Lagopus lagopus scoticus) in northeast Scotland, UK. Despite the potential for long-distance dispersal in grouse, and a semicontinuous habitat, significant population divergence was observed
