Description

Our new journal, Conservation Genetics Resources has been established specifically to provide the rapid publication of technical papers on methodological innovations or improvements, computer programs and genomic resources including, but not limited to, novel microsatellite loci.

As a result, Conservation Genetics will no longer be accepting these technical notes, but Conservation Genetics Resources is now accepting papers for review.

Conservation Genetics promotes genetic diversity by providing a forum for data and ideas, aiding the further development of this area of study. Contributions cover population genetics, molecular ecology and biology, evolutionary biology, and systematics, among others. The focus is on genetic and evolutionary applications to problems of conservation, reflecting the diversity of concerns relevant to conservation biology. The journal publishes original research papers, short communications, review papers and perspectives. The broad-ranging coverage includes:

Identification of hybrid species, hybridization in native populations, and introgression between species
Genetic structure of natural and managed populations

Variation in small or endangered populations

Reproductive strategy where natural behavior patterns are thought to have been disrupted

Forensic applications for control of trade in endangered species, and much more
