The focus of this thesis is the application of genetics to address the key knowledge gaps related to migration patterns, genetic diversity and evolutionary history of the invasive house crow (Corvus splendens). The house crow is one of the best known and most widespread crow species and is characterised by a capacity to exploit diverse habitats often remote from its natural range.
