In this paper, scientists in Texas and Mexico challenge conventional climate-based species boundaries in the speckled rattlesnake, using genomic and other data to support their recommendation that three current subspecies should be recognized as independent species. They used ddRAD-seq with BluePippin size selection to provide genotyping data for the snakes.
