    In general, landscape genetic studies have ignored the potential role that the phenotype of individuals plays in determining fine-scale genetic structure in species. This potential over-simplification ignores an important component that dispersal is both condition- and phenotype-dependent. In...

    This study reports the first set of microsatellite markers for the weasel (Mustela nivalis). We chose to isolate loci with tetranucleotide repeat motifs because they can be scored less ambiguously than the more commonly used dinucleotide loci. All 11 loci showed considerable variation within a...

    The Iberian, Italian or Balkan peninsulas have been considered as refugia for numerous mammalian species in response to Quaternary climatic fluctuations in Europe. In addition to this 'southerly refugial model', northern refugia have also been described notably for generalist and cold-tolerant...
