Abstract

The authors developed individual- and population-specific genetic markers for Odocoileus hemionus hemionus to provide wildlife managers with an efficient means of prosecuting poaching cases and analyzing population structure at the genetic level. DNA fingerprinting and analyses of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) were used to investigate genetic variation within and among mule deer populations occupying geographic regions adjacent to the N and S rims of the Grand Canyon, Arizona. -from Authors
