Hemiclone diversity in the hybrid form Pelophylax esculentus-ridibundus (Amphibia, Ranidae) from the Prypyat, Dnestr and Southern Boug rivers basins

Morozov-Leonov S.Yu.

SUMMARY. The hemiclonal structure of the Pelophylax esculentus-ridibundus hybrid form from the Pripyat, Dniester and Southern Boug rivers basins is analyzed. The inter-basin and inter-population differences in the inherited genome variation level are demonstrated. The genetic diversity level of the P. esculentus-ridibundus inherited genome in the Pripyat basin is significantly lower than in the other two basins. In this case only in the Pripyat basin monoclonal populations of this hybrid form have been identified. There were no significant differences in the genetic variability level of this hybrid form between the populations of the Dniester and Southern Boug basins. The relationship between the variability level of the inherited genome of the hybrid form and the potentially possible multiple hybridization of parental species is analyzed.
