  • Fragmentation of animal and plant populations typically leads to genetic erosion and increased probability of extirpation. [...] Key Method We used an extended form of the breeders' equation to predict the probability of OD due to adaptive differentiation between recently isolated population fragments as a function of intensity of selection, genetic diversity, effective population sizes, and generations of isolation. Empirical data indicated that populations in similar environments had not developed OD even…Expand Abstract
