Expected future directions in the field of landscape genomics are summarized, such as the extension of statistical approaches, environmental association analysis for ecological gene annotation, and the need for replication and post hoc validation studies.
RESPONSES OF TUNDRA PLANTS TO EXPERIMENTAL WARMING:META‐ANALYSIS OF THE INTERNATIONAL TUNDRA EXPERIMENT
Results indicate that key phenological events such as leaf bud burst and flowering occurred earlier in warmed plots throughout the study period; however, there was little impact on growth cessation at the end of the season.
Genetic consequences of glacial survival and postglacial colonization in Norway spruce: combined analysis of mitochondrial DNA and fossil pollen
The patterns of population subdivision superimposed on interpolated fossil pollen distributions indicate that survival in separate refugia and postglacial colonization has led to significant structuring of genetic variation in the southern range of the Norway spruce species.
Adaptive vs. neutral genetic diversity: implications for landscape genetics
Genetic diversity is important for the maintenance of the viability and the evolutionary or adaptive potential of populations and species. However, there are two principal types of genetic diversity:…

This study shows how Moran’s eigenvector maps (MEM) models can account for unmeasured environmental variation in landscape genetics models.
Identifying future research needs in landscape genetics: where to from here?

Four major challenges for future landscape genetic research that were identified during an international landscape genetics workshop are outlined, which will greatly improve landscape genetic applications, and positively contribute to the future growth of this promising field.
Estimating genomic diversity and population differentiation – an empirical comparison of microsatellite and SNP variation in Arabidopsis halleri
It is inferred that a few thousand random SNPs are sufficient to reliably estimate genome-wide diversity and to distinguish among populations differing in genetic variation and recommended that future analyses of genetic diversity within and differentiation among populations use randomly selected high-throughput sequencing-based SNP data.

In temperate, insect-pollinated and animal-dispersed tree species such as S. domestica, fragmented subpopulations are functionally connected by gene flow through both pollen and seed, based on a large-scale inventory based on genetic paternity analysis.
Tandem repeats in plant mitochondrial genomes: application to the analysis of population differentiation in the conifer Norway spruce

It is demonstrated the utility of two polymorphic mitochondrial tandem repeats located in the second intron of the nad1 gene of Norway spruce to serve as a novel molecular marker for unravelling population processes in plants.
Quantifying dispersal and establishment limitation in a population of an epiphytic lichen.
This study exemplifies that care has to be taken to adequately separate the effects of dispersal limitation from a limitation of establishment and demonstrated substantial dispersal from other than local sources.
