Title: Genetic diversity and the dynamics of metapopulations / Stephen J. Ball.
Author: Ball, Stephen Jonathon
Issue Date: 2001
School/Discipline: Dept. of Applied and Molecular Ecology
Abstract: This study examines how patterns of genetic diversity can be used to gain insights into various aspects of metapopulation dynamics. The first section of this thesis considers the relationship between the rate at which individuals enter a population, and their impact in terms of gene flow, this involved a laboratory experiment using Drosophilia melanogaster. The second section explores the value of using genetic diversity data to make qualitative "rules of thumb" decisions when managing the dynamics of metapopulations.
