Data from: The eastern migratory caribou: the role of genetic introgression in ecotype evolution

Cornelya F. C. Klutsch, Micheline Manseau, Vicki Trim, Jean Polfus & Paul J. Wilson
Understanding the evolutionary history of contemporary animal groups is essential for conservation and management of endangered species like caribou (Rangifer tarandus). In central Canada, the ranges of two caribou subspecies (barren-ground/woodland caribou) and two woodland caribou ecotypes (boreal/eastern migratory) overlap. Our objectives were to reconstruct the evolutionary history of the eastern migratory ecotype and to assess the potential role of introgression in ecotype evolution. STRUCTURE analyses identified five higher order groups (i.e. three boreal caribou...
