Demographic structure and genetic diversity of Mauremys leprosa in its northern range reveal new populations and a mixed origin.

Palacios, C., C. Urrutia, N. Knapp, M. F. Franch Quintana, A. Bertolero, G. Simon, L. du Preez & O. Verneau. Salamandra 51(3): 2015.

Short- and long-term directions for research as well as conservation management actions are suggested for this insufficiently studied species. Leer más.
