About This Project

In this study, we will compare genetic information from 100-year-old lions preserved in museums to modern lions. The goals are to estimate the historical population size of African lions across the species range, compare levels of genetic diversity of lions overtime to provide a baseline for determining the genetic health of current populations, and document regional differences in genetic diversity in populations that lived before extensive management efforts of the last 100 years.
