The Challenge of Monitoring Biodiversity

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 14:12:04 +0000

a guest blog by Charlie Outhwaite, written for the 2015 Write About Research Competition. Biological diversity, or biodiversity, is a complex term encompassing the variety of life found on Earth. It incorporates not only differences between species but within species themselves and of the environments and ecosystems where they are found. We as humans benefit […]

Iberian Lynx not doomed by its genetics says GEE's Prof Mark Thomas co-author of study

22 August 2011

The low genetic diversity of the Iberian lynx – the most endangered carnivore in Europe – may not decrease the species’ chance of survival, according to new research by geneticists.

Research looking at DNA from Iberian lynx fossils shows that they have had very little genetic variation over the last 50,000 years, suggesting that a small long-term population size is the ‘norm’ in the species and has not hampered their survival. The new study is published in the journal Molecular Ecology.
