The tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) is one of the most intensively studied of all marsupials and was the first Australasian marsupial species to have its genome sequenced. However, comparatively little is known about the amount of genetic differentiation amongst the morphologically distinct allopatric populations of tammars found in Western (WA) and South Australia (SA).
