  • 摘要: 详细了解野生动物种群数量和遗传结构信息,对于制定有效的管理对策至关重要,尤其是对于那些受到人为干扰种群处于下降和隔离状态的珍稀物种更加重要。本文借助非损伤采集粪样、线粒体与核DNA检测等分子标记技术,对来自北京和内蒙古的中华斑羚(Naemorhedus griseus)进行了种群结构比较与监测研究。结果发现,307份粪样被确认为中华斑羚遗留,其中鉴定出北京种群有15只个体(9 雌6雄)、内蒙古种群为61 只个体(37雌24雄)。在这76只个体线粒体DNA中,检测出8种单倍型、13个核苷酸多态性位点、45个微卫星等位基因。北京和内蒙古种群具有显著不同的遗传结构分化特点,但两地种群均趋向于偏雌性的性别比例,预示着较高的繁殖潜力,对于呈现片段化分布的中华斑羚恢复与保护具有重要意义。据此,我们建议对这两个具有丰富遗传多样性的种群作为进化显著单元实施保护,促进现有种群恢复,并考虑在不同种群之间交流个体,以确保中华斑羚种群长期繁盛。
