September 6, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

The Associated Press covers a story we mentioned in yesterday’s news: the mistake made by scientists hoping to replenish greenback cutthroat populations in the U.S. west. As Judith Kohler notes, prior to the new findings, “The greenback were believed to be in 142 miles of waterways, including in Rocky Mountain National Park, Rosenlund said. The new study, based DNA test results, found the greenback cutthroat trout’s range is only 11 miles of streams.”
