  • "In order to examine patterns of genetic variation among populations of species inhabiting fragmented habitats, small blood samples were taken from individual Spotted Turtles (Clemmys guttata) and Painted Turtles (Chrysemes picta marginata) at 6 sites in northern Indiana. Sufficient numbers of individuals were sampled from 2 sites for spotted turtles (one large and one small isolated wetland) and from 3 sites (2 small and one large wetland complex) for painted turtles to allow population-level genetic comparisons to be made in this pilot study, DNA fingerprinting analyses provided an index of genetic variation within and between populations for each species as a function of habitat patch size. Spotted turtles drawn from the small isolated wetland showed significantly higher levels of genetic similarity (and therefore less diversity) than those drawn from the larger site. Painted turtles showed no effect of habitat patch size in estimates of genetic variation existing within populations. Since spotted turtles normally live at very high population densities and painted turtles normally live at very low population densities, the presumed difference in their absolute population sizes may contribute to this genetic difference, suggesting that species living at low densities might be more vulnerable to detrimental genetic effects of habitat fragmentation"--Abstract, leaf [1]
