Detecting intraspecific hybrids in Testudo hermanni

It's rather long and a bit dry, but worth reading...one thing I found interesting is the authors' contention that there are only two subspecies of Testudo hermanni, T. hermmanni hermanni and T. hermanni boettgeri, with T. hermanni hercegovinensis being merely a regional variation of T. hermanni boettgeri...no doubt there could be some interesting verbal sparring on this one point alone. :tort:

And it advocates protecting each species' uniquenesses, which I'm sure we all agree is important. :cool:
