How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Full-text available
Species recovery programs are increasingly using genomic data to measure neutral genetic diversity and calculate metrics like relatedness. While these measures can inform conservation management, determining the mechanisms underlying inbreeding depression requires information about functional genes associated with adaptive or maladaptive traits. To...
Preprint
Over the past 50 years conservation genetics has developed a substantive toolbox to inform species management. One of the most long-standing tools available to manage genetics - the pedigree - has been widely used to characterize diversity and maximize evolutionary potential in threatened populations. Now, with the ability to use high throughput se...

Article
Accurate measures of relatedness and inbreeding are important when managing the genetic health of endangered species. However undetected extra-pair parentage, where offspring are the result of copulations outside of the social pair, may result in inaccuracies in relatedness measures if these data are obtained through observing social pairings. Gene...

1. To achieve the vision outlined in the national strategy for biodiversity, Te Mana o te Taiao, we will need to unite diverse disciplines, including conservation genetics/genomics. 2. As conservation genetic/genomic data generated for—and associated with—taonga (treasured) species is also taonga, we highlight the need for collaborative research p...
Article
Full-text available
Cook’s Petrel Pterodroma cookii is an endemic New Zealand seabird that has experienced a large range decline since the arrival of humans and now only breeds on two offshore islands (Te Hauturu-o-Toi/Little Barrier Island and Whenua Hou/Codfish Island) at the extreme ends of its former distribution. Morphological, behavioural, and mitochondrial cyto...
Article
Full-text available
Small island populations are particularly prone to extinction due to the effects of genetic drift and inbreeding reducing genetic variation and fitness of such populations. Furthermore, isolated island populations may experience population divergence due to drift or divergent selection. Reciprocal translocations of individuals between populations m...
Article
Full-text available
Hybridisation between an endangered species and a more common species can facilitate population decline and extinction of the endangered species due to wasted reproductive effort, outbreeding depression and/or swamping of alleles due to widespread or complete admixture. The Chatham Island black robin (Petroica traversi) is an endangered songbird sp...
