Abstract

Crayfish are one of many freshwater organisms that are subject to biodiversity changes. Environmental factors play an important role in the genetic composition of a population. Using AFLP markers we were able to better understand the population genetics of 418 O. virilis crayfish from 23 sites in the Blackstone River Valley by identifying interactions between these various populations and lineages.
