IBERIAN WOLVES DO NOT LEAVE THE REGION WHERE THEY WERE BORN
Study led by CIBIO-InBIO researchers, which reveals low dispersal in Iberian wolves, has been attracting media attention.
 

In an article published by the prestigious journal Scientific Reports, an international team which includes CIBIO-InBIO researchers Pedro Silva, Francisco Álvares, Susana Lopes, Helena Rio-Maior, Nuno Ferrand e Raquel Godinho, shows that the wolf population in the Iberian Peninsula is fragmented into multiple subpopulations with moderate to high genetic differentiation between them.


The research, which has been highlighted by the media, combined DNA analysis and wolves’ tracking over two decades. The results suggest that Iberian wolves seem to be less adventurous than would be expected, and very few individuals leave the region where they were born.
