In numerous species, individual dispersal is restricted in space so that "continuous" populations evolve under isolation by distance. A method based on individual genotypes assuming a lattice population model was recently developed to estimate the product Dsigma2, where D is the population density and sigma2 is the average squared parent-offspring distance. We evaluated the influence on this method of both mutation rate and mutation model, with a particular reference to microsatellite markers… CONTINUE READING
