Question: The population size of horned lizards in a desert patch drastically declined after a severe storm…


The population size of horned lizards in a desert patch drastically declined after a severe storm. This resulted in a loss of genetic diversity and the expression of deleterious alleles. To supplement this population, other lizards were sourced from a nearby, climatically-different desert patch, because there is evidence of historic gene flow between these populations. What is the criterion that managers used to select this source population? O genetic exchangeability ecological exchangeability O local adaptation genetic swamping
