    Throughout its range, the long-term persistence of the wood turtle (Glyptemys insculpta Le Conte, 1830) is jeopardized by habitat perturbations and commercial collection. The main objective of this study was to acquire knowledge on the genetic structure of wood turtle populations within Quebec,...
