Data from: Reconstruction of caribou evolutionary history in Western North America and its implications for conservation

Byron V. Weckworth, Marco Musiani, Allan D. McDevitt, Mark Hebblewhite & Stefano Mariani
The role of Beringia as a refugium and route for trans-continental exchange of fauna during glacial cycles of the past 2 million years are well documented; less apparent is its contribution as a significant reservoir of genetic diversity. Using mitochondrial DNA sequences and 14 microsatellite loci, we investigate the phylogeographic history of caribou (Rangifer tarandus) in western North America. Patterns of genetic diversity reveal two distinct groups of caribou. Caribou classified as a Northern group,...
