Contrasting genetic responses to habitat fragmentation for two Lycaenid butterfly species

Daronja Trense, Jan Christian Habel, Aline Finger & Klaus Fischer
Biodiversity is currently declining at the global scale. Apart from species declines and lowered abundances, the loss of genetic diversity is equally concerning as it may undermine fitness and the potential to adapt to future environmental change. We compared genetic diversity of historical and recent Alpine populations of two butterfly species, Lycaena helle and L. hippothoe, over a period of about 10 years. Using microsatellite markers, we found no changes over time in L. helle,...
