Abstract Explaining the extent, causes, and consequences of biotic distributions in space is fundamental to our understanding of how species evolve and cope with particular environments. Yet, identifying extrinsic barriers to migration imposed by landscape structure and predicting their impacts on intraspecific genetic diversity remains a major challenge in population biology. In this study, 30 populations (771 individuals) of brook charr (Salvelinus fontinalis, Salmonidae) representing six… 
Watershed characteristics shape the landscape genetics of brook stickleback (Culaea inconstans) in shallow prairie lakes
TLDR
The genetic population structure of brook stickleback among several lakes is characterized, finding that the species is hierarchically influenced by within‐lake characteristics in small‐scale watersheds and reinforces the potential importance of connectivity in the maintenance of genetic diversity, especially in fragmented landscapes.
Hierarchical population structure and genetic diversity of lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) in a dendritic system in Northern Labrador
TLDR
This study is the first to describe patterns of genetic diversity among lake trout populations inhabiting a spatially fragmented system in an ecologically pristine and sensitive area of northern Canada, the barren grounds of northern Labrador.
The landscape genetics of yellow perch (Perca flavescens) in a large fluvial ecosystem
TLDR
This study showed that landscape genetics is a powerful means to identify environmental barriers to gene flow causing genetic discontinuities in apparently highly connected aquatic landscapes.
Major Lineages and Metapopulations in Columbia River Oncorhynchus mykiss Are Structured by Dynamic Landscape Features and Environments
TLDR
Standardized microsatellite data were compiled for 226 collections of rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss from throughout the Columbia and Snake River basins to evaluate the genetic patterns of structure and adaptation.
Genetic and phenotypic population divergence on a microgeographic scale in brown trout
TLDR
The genetic and eco‐morphological diversity of brown trout in a Swiss stream system is measured, using multivariate statistics and Bayesian clustering, and variation in overall phenotype matched the flow regimes of the respective habitats.
Importance of life-history and landscape characteristics for genetic structure and genetic diversity of brown trout (Salmo trutta L.)
TLDR
It is shown that life history is the most important variable explaining genetic diversity and population differentiation in brown trout with stream-resident, lake-dwelling and sea-migrating life-history in two river systems in northern Sweden.
Genetic Population Structure of Brook Trout Inhabiting a Large River Watershed
TLDR
The genetic population structure of brook trout inhabiting the Miramichi River, New Brunswick, a large river system composed of three main stems, was assessed using six microsatellite DNA loci and suggested the presence of five candidate source populations within the 12 sites.
The rise and fall of isolation by distance in the anadromous brook charr (Salvelinus fontinalis Mitchill).
TLDR
It is demonstrated that changes in a species' geographic range and dispersal capabilities may contribute to shaping geographic patterns of genetic diversity.
Modeling genetic connectivity in sticklebacks as a guideline for river restoration
TLDR
The three‐spined stickleback was used to detect the geographical determinants of genetic connectivity in the eastern part of the Scheldt basin in Belgium, and Anthropogenic structures came out as the strongest determinant of population structure, when evaluated against a geographically well‐documented baseline model accounting for natural effects.

Hydrography and population genetic structure in brook charr (Salvelinus fontinalis, Mitchill) from eastern Canada
TLDR
This study analysed the variability of six microsatellite loci among 24 brook charr population samples in order to correlate hydrographic structure with genetic organization and revealed that habitat structure analyses constitute an important, but insufficient, predictor of genetic structure.
Canonical correspondence analysis for estimating spatial and environmental effects on microsatellite gene diversity in brook charr (Salvelinus fontinalis)
TLDR
A statistical framework based on canonical correspondence analysis is used in order to determine the relative contribution of drainage pattern and environmental factors in structuring inter‐ and intrapopulational genetic diversity among brook charr populations as depicted by microsatellite analysis.
Genetic variability, population size and isolation of distinct populations in the freshwater fish Cottus gobio L.
TLDR
Analysis of allozyme data of the European freshwater fish Cottus gobio showed marked genetic differentiation across drainage basins in northeastern Bavaria, which points to the existence of at least two cryptic taxa, which suggests that the difference in genetic variability between taxa may be explained by differences in population size.
Microsatellite analysis of demographic genetic structure in fragmented populations of the tropical tree Symphonia globulifera
TLDR
Principal component analysis reaffirmed that a bottleneck, acting in concert with pre‐existing genetic structure in the adults, had led to enhanced and rapid divergence in the seedlings following deforestation, a result that is of central interest for landscape management.
Factors affecting the distribution of genetic variability in the guppy, Poecilia reticulata
TLDR
Results show that the predation regime mediated mating behaviour of upland and lowland populations in the wild is not as divergent as previous laboratory observations have suggested and that the observed patterns of genetic variability arise primarily as a consequence of stochastic as opposed to deterministic factors.
Genetic population structure of the winter moth (Operophtera brumata L.) (Lepidoptera, Geometridae) in a fragmented landscape
TLDR
It is demonstrated that genetic differentiation increased whereas genetic diversity decreased with fragmentation, with habitat patches isolated by only a few hundred metres up to 3 km, which indicates that the effects of fragmentation probably remain limited.
Microgeographic genetic structure and gene flow in Hibiscus moscheutos (Malvaceae) populations.
TLDR
Genetic differences between populations were mostly explained by a gene flow model that accounted for the location of populations relative to the tidal stream, and the importance of hydrochory in affecting spatial genetic structure was suggested both within and among H. moscheutos populations.
Influence of landscape on the population genetic structure of the alpine butterfly Parnassius smintheus (Papilionidae)
TLDR
Rises in the tree‐line in alpine areas, caused by global warming, will lead to reduced gene flow among populations of P. smintheus, suggesting a significant effect of landscape on population genetic structure beyond that of simple isolation by distance.
Specific microsatellite loci for brook charr reveal strong population subdivision on a microgeographic scale
TLDR
The results indicated that these loci should be valuable in addressing fine scale population genetics questions in brook charr, and represent the first available microsatellites developed in the genus Salvelinus.
