Summary of Aim

The aim of the project is to use mitochondrial DNA analysis to study intraspecific variation of Halipeurus pelagicus, a feather louse colonising the Madeiran storm- petrel, Oceanodroma castro. The two possible types of variation to be investigated are;
1. Genetic variation between lice from hot- and cool-season breeders, corresponding to the genetic variation discovered in O. castro
2. Genetic variation between lice from different island populations.
