Can small populations benefit genetic rescue?

The core dogma of conservation biology is clear: small populations are bad for species’ persistence. If we observe a population of endangered vertebrates harboring abundant deleterious mutations but without any reduction in fitness, what is happening there? I would like … Continue reading

The imitation game: simulating the genetics of large populations

Computational simulations of genetic data are such a powerful and flexible tool for carrying out studies in molecular ecology. Do you want to know how much explanatory power your data provides? Simulate it! Predict the future response of species to … Continue reading
