Greater Sage Grouse

Oyler-McCance, Casazza, Fike & Coates (in press). Hierarchical spatial genetic structure in a distinct population segment of greater sage-grouse. Conserv Genet. [abstract]

de Juana, Kirwan & Christie 2013 (HBW Alive)...
Quote:
Populations of NW, from Washington to Oregon, sometimes awarded separate race, phaios, but no genetic evidence for subdividing W & E populations, although recent study showed that population in SW Nevada/E California has unusually large number of unique haplotypes [Benedict et al. (2003)].

The original (2000) paper mentioned "frequency differences of shared mitochondrial haplotypes and shared microsatellite alleles", which is the the sort of thing found when comparing different crop cultivars or between different groups of humans.

This latest study is better in that it definitely shows three well-differentiated populations, but it still seems inappropriate to use population level markers to support speciation arguments as they do again here.

Not taxonomy, but this beautiful Cornell Lab film (broadcast on PBS last week, and reported elsewhere by eBird, ABA and on BirdForum) – with a particular focus on Greater Sage Grouse – is well worth watching...

I saw it in PBS and yes, it is worth watching
