Blaineville's Horned Lizard Genetics Study

June 1, 2015 - January 1, 2017
The proposed study will provide data on whether coast horned lizard populations are genetically interconnected across the NCCP reserve system, or whether gene flow has occurred recently but is no longer possible due to habitat fragmentation.
