Historical volcanism and within-island genetic divergence in the Tenerife skink (Squamata: Scincidae)

Article English OPEN
Brown, RP; Woods, M; Thorpe, RS;

This study examines the genetic diversity of the Tenerife skink (Chalcides viridanus) within the context that Tenerife is now thought to have arisen as a single island as opposed to two/three precursor islands. DNA sequences were obtained from two mitochondrial regions ... View more
