1. Thompson, Coleen E P. The genetic diversity of North American vertebrates in protected areas.

Degree: MS, Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology, 2019, The Ohio State University

Protected areas play a crucial role in the conservation of biodiversity, but it is unclear if these areas have an influence on genetic diversity. Since genetic diversity is a crucial component of a species ability to adapt and persist in an environment over long periods of time, its assessment is valuable when designating areas for conservation. As a first step towards addressing this issue, we compare genetic diversity inside and outside of protected areas in North America using repurposed data. We tested the null hypothesis that there is no difference between genetic diversity inside compared to outside of protected areas in 44 vertebrate species. A substantial portion of vertebrate species exhibit significant differences in the amount of intraspecific genetic diversity in a comparison between protected and unprotected areas. While our simulation testing suggests that this result is not an artifact of sampling, it is unclear what factors influence the relative amount of genetic diversity inside and outside of protected areas across species. Advisors/Committee Members: Carstens, Bryan (Advisor).
