Abstract:

The genetic structure and the phylogenetic relationships among five Balkan populations of trout Salmo trutta that have been classified earlier into five different taxa were studied, using microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analyses. The pattern of population differentiation observed at microsatellites differed to that depicted by mtDNA variation, yet both methods indicated a very strong partitioning of the genetic variation among sampling locations. Results thus suggest that conservation strategies should be directed towards preserving the genetic integrity and uniqueness of each population.
