McRae, Brad H. 2006. Puma genetic data: Southwestern USA. (Abstract) (Online version)


Data consist of genotypes and geographic locations of 540 free-ranging pumas (Puma concolor) sampled throughout the states of Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico. All pumas were legally killed by hunters between 1999 and 2002. Pumas were genotyped at 16 microsatellite loci, with known relatives excluded.
