Landscape genetics of plants: examples from semi-natural grasslands
Time: Thursday, 20. April 2017 at 15.15
Place: Tartu, Lai 40-218 (Vaga auditorium)
Landscape genetics is a field, which combines landscape ecology and population genetics. Using plants in semi-natural grasslands as an example, I will provide an overview about how landscape genetics can be used for tracking the dispersal and gene flow of plants. I will also briefly discuss, how landscape genetics can be applied for examining adaptive genetic diversity of plants.
