AbstractWe aimed at determining the effects of past climatic conditions on contemporary intraspecific genetic structuring of the endemic Moroccan midwife toad Alytes maurus using mitochondrial DNA (12S, 16S and cytochrome b) analysis and ecological niche modelling. Unexpectedly, our genetic analyses show that A. maurus presents a low level of variability in the mitochondrial genes with no clear geographical structuring. The low genetic variation in mtDNA can be explained by a much broader climatic suitability during the Last Glacial Maximum that allowed the connection among populations and subsequent homogenization as a consequence of gene flow.
