Mar 12,  · Conservation of Wildlife Populations provides an accessible introduction to the most relevant concepts and principles for solving real-world management problems in wildlife and conservation biology.

Bringing together insights from traditionally disparate disciplines, the book shows how population biology addresses important questions involving. Population ecology has matured to a sophisticated science with astonishing potential for contributing solutions to wildlife conservation and management challenges.

And yet, much of the applied power of wildlife population ecology remains untapped because its broad sweep across disparate subfields has been isolated in specialized texts. In this book, L.

We investigated the genetic population structure and species status of a relatively sedentary bird that is a permanent resident of western North American forests, the blue grouse (Dendragapus obscurus).Phylogenetic analysis of complete mitochondrial control region DNA sequences resulted in the identification of three basal clades of haplotypes that were largely congruent with well‐known Cited by: Aug 11,  · Conservation of Wildlife Populations: Demography, Genetics, and Management - Kindle edition by L.

demographic history and speciation within this lineage; the willow grouse, red grouse, rock ptarmigan and the black grouse. I, and my co-authors, begin by reviewing the plethora of methods used to estimate contemporary effective population size (Ne) and demographic history that are available to animal conservation practitioners.

In this study, we tested whether the Sharp-tailed Grouse Tympanuchus phasianellus experienced rapid demographic expansion and shifts in its distribution from the Last Glacial Maximum to the present and to the future. For this, we integrated two different approaches, phylogeography and ecological niche modeling, to understand the historical demography and the future of the Sharp-tailed Grouse.

The Sooty Grouse is endemic to mountainous regions in western North America from south-coastal Alaska and northwestern British Columbia south to the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California and westernmost Nevada ().Formerly considered the coastal subspecies of the Blue Grouse, recent DNA evidence supported a split of the Blue Grouse into two species, the Sooty Grouse and the Dusky Grouse.
