Data from: Elevated genetic diversity of mitochondrial genes in asexual populations of bark lice (\"Psocoptera\": Echmepteryx hageni)

Scott M. Shreve, Edward L. Mockford & Kevin P. Johnson
Asexual reproduction is commonly thought to be associated with low genetic diversity in animals. Echmepteryx hageni (Insecta: “Psocoptera”) is one of several psocopteran species that are primarily parthenogenetic, but also exists in small, isolated sexual populations. We used mitochondrial DNA sequences to investigate the population history and genealogical relationships between the sexual and asexual forms of this species. The asexual population of E. hageni exhibits extremely high mitochondrial haplotype diversity (H = 0.98), whereas the...
