Dear TAXACOM subscribers,

I am seeking tissue samples from several subspecies of rock ptarmigan
(Lagopus mutus) for my doctoral study of intraspecific genetic variation
(mtDNA) and taxonomy of this beast. Of immediate interest are samples from
L.m. japponicus (Japan) and L.m. kurilensis (Kurile Islands, Russia), but
please let me know of any/all others that you might have. I am willing to
negotiate an exchange (if desired).

Thank you for your help.
