Title: A comparative framework to infer landscape effects on population genetic structure: Are habitat suitability models effective in explaining gene flow?

Author: Mateo-Sanchez, Maria C.; Balkenhol, Niko; Cushman, Samuel; Perez, Trinidad; Dominguez, Ana; Saura, Santiago;

Date: 2015

Source: Landscape Ecology. 30: 1405-1420.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description:

Most current methods to assess connectivity begin with landscape resistance maps. The prevailing resistance models are commonly based on expert opinion and, more recently, on a direct transformation of habitat suitability. However, habitat associations are not necessarily accurate indicators of dispersal, and thus may fail as a surrogate of resistance to movement. Genetic data can provide valuable insights in this respect.

Keywords: gene flow, habitat suitability, landscape resistance, species movement, landscape genetics, brown bear
