Making molehills out of mountains: landscape genetics of the Mojave desert tortoise

, , , and . Landscape Ecology 26 (2): 267-280 (2011)

Abstract

Heterogeneity in habitat often influences how organisms traverse the landscape matrix that connects populations. Understanding landscape connectivity is important to determine the ecological processes that influence those movements, which lead to evolutionary change due to gene flow. Here, we used landscape genetics and statistical models to evaluate hypotheses that could explain isolation among locations of the threatened Mojave desert tortoise (
