Summary

These data include nuclear microsatellite data and mitochondrial DNA sequences (mtDNA) for specimens of Red-cockaded woodpeckers collected from three time points: 1881-1969 (mtDNA only), 1992-1994, and 2010-2014. Additional information regarding individual identifiers, population assignment, regional assignment, and eco-regional assignment are included as are longitude/latitude coordinates for populations.
