NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A University of Copenhagen-led team of researchers has mapped out the global genetic diversity of amphibians and land mammals.

Genetic diversity is a key component of biodiversity — the variation it confers on a species could enable some members of that species to tolerate environmental changes, such as human-driven climate change. As such, the researchers said that understanding its global distribution is important for conservation and other efforts.
