Abstract

Genetic and phylogenetic studies on endangered species are being conducted to stop the rapid decline of biological species due to industrial expansion and harmful human activities. Conservation groups and geneticists first promoted outbreeding as an approach to maximize the population of captive species. Developments in the field of conservation genetics have led to the expansion of genetic programs using molecular approaches to increase the knowledge on the molecular evolution of endangered species.
