Refugia within refugia as a key to disentangle the genetic pattern of a highly variable species

Two distinct lineages of Rana temporaria are known in the Palaearctic region, but it is uncertain whether this species persisted in one or more Pleistocene refugia. We resolved the phylogeographic history and genetic variability of R. temporaria in the Italian peninsula, a ‘traditional’ Pleistocene refugium, and related our findings to patterns described for other European populations.
