Abstract
Life history traits and features of the landscape can affect the genetic structure of populations and species across their ranges. Amphibians are expected to exhibit fine-scale genetic structure due to their typically small size and tendency for philopatry, factors that should limit their dispersal. Pseudacris crucifer, the spring peeper, is a small North American woodland frog with fidelity to natal wetlands. I hypothesize that P. crucifer breeding aggregations in Eastern Ontario have limited dispersal and that this should be manifested in fine-scale genetic structure. I conducted Bayesian assignment tests of microsatellite data of individuals from 10 localitie...
