The general scheme of how to do landscape genetics in plants (pic from this paper)

Summary:

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.
