Summary

Aim Pikas (Ochotona spp.) are alpine specialists that show considerable morphological and genetic variation structured along latitudinal and elevational gradients. Recent studies of North American and Asian pikas have uncovered phylogeographical partitioning among separate mountain ranges and drainages, driven by Quaternary climate fluctuations. We tested the prediction that collared pikas (O. collaris) exhibit lower genetic diversity and less structure than other species of pika due to lower long-term habitat stability. Location Eastern Beringia (Alaska and north-western Canada). Methods We examined phylogeographical variation in the collared pika (O. collaris) throughout much of its known range using the mitochondrial cytochrome [...]
