Synthesis of geographical, spatial-temporal, and metapopulation models into the analysis of landscape-level genetic data of woody plants (Sabbatical Fellow)

Principal Investigators:

Victoria L. Sork

The study of genetic diversity is a key element to the fields of population, conservation, and evolutionary biology. Yet, the analysis of genetic diversity of plants is often evaluated without reference to the geographical, spatial-temporal, or metapopulation dynamics of the sampled populations. A major goal of my research program is to evaluate the extent to which the distribution of genetic variation within and among populations is influenced by environmental factors associated with the landscape where these populations occur. ... more
