Genetics in amphibians, reptiles and fishes


Genetics are getting more and more important in nature management and nature policy. Genetic variation is the basic for biodiversity within ecosystems and species. When a habitat of a threatened species is suitable in all respects or has been made suitable, it can be that this is not enough to prevent the species from dying out in that location. If the population is old and suffering from genetic erosion, reproduction is no longer successful neither is there an exchange of genes. It is thus important to have more insight in the genetic diversity and effective population size of threatened species.
