Electrophoretic variation in 2 species of ranid frogs rana boylei and rana muscosa


, : Electrophoretic variation in 2 species of ranid frogs rana boylei and rana muscosa. Copeia (2): 311-320

Loci (17) were examined in the frogs, R. boylei and R. muscosa, to assess levels of genic variation, and to examine the relationship between them. Average heterozygosities, as measured by the percentage of polymorphic loci, ranged 9-47% in different populations. These values are similar to those reported in other vertebrates. Intraspecific Nei distances are low (.hivin.D = 0.015 for R. boylei; .hivin.D = 0.038 from R. muscosa), while the mean distance between these 2 spp. is 0.728. This data, as well as consideration of karyological and immunological data, suggest R. muscosa is not polyphyletic with respect to R. boylei.
