The application of genetic indicators in wild populations: potential and pitfalls for genetic monitoring

Pierson, Jennifer; Luikart, Gordon; Schwartz, Michael; Lindenmayer, David B


In this chapter we focus on the application of common genetic metrics as genetic indicators, or measures of patterns of genetic diversity, genetic erosion, or genetic vulnerability. We outline five things we have learned regarding the current application of genetic indicators and their use in natural resource management, and five areas of research that will be most fruitful in moving the field forwards.
