Gene flow and effective population size (N(e)) should depend on a population's position within its range: those near the edges are expected to have smaller N(e) and lower relative emigration rates, whereas those nearer the centre should have larger N(e) and higher relative emigration rates. In species with continuous ranges, this phenomenon may limit the ability of peripheral populations to respond to divergent selection. Here, we employ Sitka spruce as a model to test these predictions. We… CONTINUE READING
