Data from: Hot spots of genetic diversity descended from multiple Pleistocene refugia in an alpine ungulate

Aaron BA Shafer, Steeve D Côté & David W Coltman
Species that inhabit naturally fragmented environments are expected to be spatially structured and exhibit reduced genetic diversity at the periphery of their range. Patterns of differentiation may also reflect historical processes such as recolonization from glacial refugia. We examined the relative importance of these factors in shaping the spatial patterns of genetic differentiation across the range of an alpine specialist, the North American mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus). Contrary to fossil evidence which suggests a single...
