Poplation genomics study on endangered Romer's tree frog ​

Romer's tree frog (Liuixalus romeri) is a species of conservation concern in Hong Kong and it is considered Endangered by the IUCN. This species is potentially endemic to Hong Kong and has been successfully translocated to multiple localities around Hong Kong. The goal of this project is to understand the genetic structure of L. romeri populations around Hong Kong. This project will provide valuable data for informing conservation management of this species.
