2017-11-21 | Genetics of wolves in Carpathian Mountains

International team of scientists from Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Romania published article focused on the genetics of wolves inhabiting Carpathian Mountains. Paper, entitled Wolves at the crossroad: Fission–fusion range biogeography in the Western Carpathians and Central Europe" appeared today in "Diversity and Distributions". Article was co-authored by specialists from the Association for Nature "Wolf" and Institute of Genetics and Biotechnology Faculty of Biology University of Warsaw - Dr. Robert Mysłajek, Dr. Sabina Nowak, Dr. Natalia Niedźwiecka, Maciej Szewczyk and Michał Figura. Reaserchers confirmed the separate status of the population within the European plain versus the Carpathian Mountains. They also identified no first stages of wolf–dog hybridization within the study area. Low haplotype diversity ascertained in the Western Carpathians is in concordance with a presumption of higher impacts of anthropogenic eradication and fragmentation within Central Europe in comparison with more continuous eastern populations.
