Three genetically divergent lineages of the Oryx in eastern Africa: Evidence for an ancient introgressive hybridization
(Conservation Genetics, 2006)
Phylogeographic and population genetic studies using sequence information are frequently used to infer species boundaries and history; and to assess hybridization and population level processes. In this study, partial ...
Evolutionary history of Nile perch Lates sp. inferred from mitochondrial DNA variation analyses
(Zoological Studies, 2013)
Evolutionary histories of aquatic species are often characterized by distinct patterns of genetic variation, which in part reflect drainage evolution. In the present study, the consequences of paleo-environmental changes ...
Genetic evidence of successful establishment of the Nile perch (Lates spp. L.) in East African lakes and implications for management
(Management of Biological Invasions, 2012)
Nile perch establishment in novel ranges in East Africa is one of the most successful freshwater invasion stories in the recent history. It became ecologically dominant and well established in several lakes in the Lake ...
Population Genetic Structure of Savannah Elephants in Kenya: Conservation and Management Implications
(Journal of heredity, 2008)
We investigated population genetic structure and regional differentiation among African savannah elephants in Kenya using mitochondrial and microsatellite markers. We observed mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) nucleotide diversity ...
A recent bottleneck in the warthog and elephant populations of Queen Elizabeth National Park, revealed by a comparative study of four mammalian species in Uganda national parks
(Animal Conservation, 2003)
Until 1972, Uganda’s national parks boasted of large numbers of large mammal species. Following the breakdown of law and order between 1972 and 1985, large-scale poaching led to an unprecedented decline in numbers of most ...
