"Landscape (population) genetic data analysis using R”

The term ‘landscape genetics’ has been applied studies that 
integrate ecological context and intervening landscape into population 
genetic analyses of contemporary processes such as gene flow and 
migration.  This course would be suited to anyone investigating the 
ecological/environmental basis for genetic differences between 
populations of marine mammal species, both spatial and temporal. The 
course will cover the basics of both quantitative landscape ecology and 
population genetics, focusing on how we develop and evaluate 
spatial/genetic analyses using the R platform.

Delivered by Dr. Rodney Dyer
