    Proc Biol Sci 270:417-23. 2003
    ..These findings strongly support the hypothesis that large roads are absolute barriers to gene flow in C. violaceus, which may lead to a loss of genetic variability in fragmented populations...

    Computational and Molecular Population Genetics Laboratory, Zoological Institute, University of Bern, Baltzerstrasse 6, 3012 Bern, Switzerland
    Mol Ecol 13:2983-94. 2004
    ..We discuss the implications of our findings for the conservation of abundant but poorly dispersing species in fragmented habitats...

    ..It therefore appears that rDNA variants move freely across the zone and are not under opposing selection pressures in the two races, as had previously been suspected...
