      Kaczensky, Petra; Kovtun, Ekaterina; Habibrakhmanov, Rustam; Hemami, Mahmoud‑Reza; Khaleghi, Amirhossein; Linnell, John Durrus; Rustamov, Eldar; Sklyarenko, Sergey; Walzer, Chris; Zuther, Steffen; Kuehn, Ralph (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Loss of genetic diversity due to drift and inbreeding reduces a population’s ability to respond to environmental change and may result in inbreeding depression. The Asiatic wild ass (Equus hemionus), regionally also known ...
    • Landscape relatedness: detecting contemporary fine-scalespatial structure in wild populations 

      Norman, Anita J.; Stronen, Astrid V.; Fuglstad, Geir-Arne; Ruiz-Gonzalez, Aritz; Kindberg, Jonas; Street, Nathaniel R.; Spong, Göran (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Context Methods for detecting contemporary, finescale population genetic structure in continuous populations are scarce. Yet such methods are vital for ecological and conservation studies, particularly under a changing ...
