A re-evaluation of management units based on gene flow of a rare waterbird in the Americas

Golya Shahrokhi, David Rodriguez, Samantha Collins, Gina Kent, Ken Meyer, Eduardo Palacios & M. Clay Green
The maintenance of gene flow in species that have experienced population contractions and are geographically fragmented is important to the maintenance of genetic variation and evolutionary potential; thus, gene flow is also important to conservation and management of these species. For example, the Reddish Egret (Egretta rufescens) has recovered after severe population reductions during the 19th and 20th centuries, but population numbers remain below historic levels. In this study, we characterized gene flow among management...
