Black redhorse--Iowa--Genetics; Black redhorse--Iowa--Geographical distribution;
The objectives of this study are to:
a. Characterize the genetic diversity of populations of Black Redhorse in Iowa
b. Determine the level of connectivity between populations in Iowa
Overall, this project aims to determine the degree of fragmentation of Black Redhorse populations to better direct conservation strategies. This study utilizes genome-wide Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) to assess the population genetic structure of the Black Redhorse across its range in northeast Iowa.
