Abstract:Finally, analyses of variation at 6 microsatellite loci among 210 P. leucopus from three sites each around three of the largest cities in Illinois recovered reduced levels of gene flow among sites separated by urban development compared to sites separated by deciduous forest habitat. Mitochondrial DNA sequences of all P. leucopus indicated that post-glacial expansions into the region did not confound the analysis of microsatellite variation. This study provides important empirical data on the importance of urban development in disrupting evolutionary processes within natural populations.
