I study species and populations divergence using multiple sequence markers. I want to provide quantitative information about the patterns of historical and contemporary gene flow and intra-specific differentiation between diverging populations or species, particular the Carpathian newt (Lissotriton montandoni) and the smooth newt (Lissotriton vulgaris). Such data is essential for understanding the mechanisms of speciation and maintenance of species identity in the face of hybridization. [1]
