LA PROBLEMATIQUE ARTIFICIELLE DE COMPATIBILITE GENETIQUE ENTRE GROUPES DE TERRITOIRES DISTINCTS, REFAIT SURFACE.
Le projet de réintroduction de tigres dans les collines de Mukundra (Kota) pour décongestionner Ranthambore suscite cette bien inutile réémergence... Ce qui suit n'engage que son auteur...
Director of the Wildlife Institute of India (WII) Dr B V Mathur while turning down the state forest department proposal for shifting of a semi-adult tiger from Ranthambore to Sariska had emphasized that "to build up population of tigers to a sustainable level, it would be worth to translocate an adult male that is genetically distinct from the Sariska population instead of the sub adult as this age class is already represented in Sariska." He said it is important that genetic configuration of tiger should be given priority for future translocation. The WII stand that Indian tigers have five distinctly featured population groups in the Indian sub-continent. Their interbreeding has not been recorded so far. No comparative homogeneity or divergence of these population groups has been examined at the genetic level. In the absence of any detailed genomic studies of each of these geographically separated groups, it is not possible to evolve a robust conservation strategy for future of these separated populations.
