Summary

Maintenance of genetic diversity is important for conserving species, especially those with fragmented habitats and/or ranges. In the absence of natural dispersal, translocation can be used to achieve this goal. However, the long-term impacts from translocation can be expensive and difficult to evaluate. This dataset is used to evaluate genetic change as a result of translocation and represents samples collected before and after translocations were conducted.

Purpose

These data were collected to evaluate the genetic impacts of translocation. They represent the genetic structure and levels of diversity for 6 Gunnison Sage-grouse populations before and after birds were translocated from the Gunnison Basin population into 4 of the 5 satellite populations included in this study.
