Abstract: Elucidating the population genetic structure of a species gives us insight into the levels of gene flow and connectivity between geographic regions. These are important considerations when trying to manage a threatened or Blue-listed species, such as wolverines, as we are then provided with information on how far and where animals may be dispersing and where population boundaries occur. Population genetic structure can be estimated using fast evolving, highly variable molecular markers such as microsatellites. These molecular markers have a high mutation rate, can be analyzed from a very small amount of DNA using polymerase chain reaction, and provide reproducible results. Using microsatellites, we have addressed questions of genetic variation within populations with estimates of population heterozygosity, mean number of alleles, and probability of identity. Gene flow among populations was also estimated via an assignment test and genetic distance measures...
