dc.description.abstractSiberian flying squirrel, an endangered species in
South Korea, is distributed through major mountain regions of
South Korea. The number of Siberian flying squirrel (Pteromys
volans) in South Korea has decreased and their habitats are
fragmented and isolated because of anthropogenic activities.
So far no molecular genetic data has, however, been available
for their conservation and management. To obtain better
information concerning genetic diversity and phylogenetic
relationships of the Siberian flying squirrel in South Korea, we
examined 14 individuals from South Korea, 7 individuals from
Russia, and 5 individuals from northeastern China along with
previously published 29 haplotypes for 1,140 bp of the mtDNA
cytochrome b gene. The 14 new individuals from South Korea
had 7 haplotypes which were not observed in the regions of
Russia and Hokkaido. The level of genetic diversity (0.616%)
in the South Korean population was lower than that in eastern
Russia (0.950%). The geographical distribution of mtDNA
haplotypes and reduced median network confirmed that there
are three major lineages of Siberian flying squirrel, occupying;
Far Eastern, northern Eurasia, and the island of Hokkaido.
The South Korean population only slightly distinct from the
Eurasia, and eastern Russian population, and is part of the
lineage Far Eastern. Based on these, we suggest that the
South Korean population could be considered to belong to
one partial ESU (Far Eastern) of three partial ESUs but a
different management unit. However, the conservation
priorities should be reconfirmed by nuclear genetic marker and
ecological data.
