The biogeographic history and the genetic structure of garden dormouse populations thus need to be assessed using independent molecular markers.
Similarly, the comparison of nucleotide, haplotype, and genetic divergence values within versus between clades revealed that most of the nucleotide differences distinguish the different clades Table 2.
