The effect of sex-biased dispersal on opposite-sexed spatial genetic structure and inbreeding risk

Blyton, Michaela; Banks, Samuel; Peakall, Rodney

Description

Natal sex-biased dispersal has long been thought to reduce the risk of inbreeding by spatially separating opposite-sexed kin. Yet, comprehensive and quantitative evaluations of this hypothesis are lacking. In this study, we quantified the effectiveness of sex-biased dispersal as an inbreeding avoidance strategy by combining spatially explicit simulations and empirical data. We quantified the extent of kin clustering by measuring the degree of spatial autocorrelation among opposite-sexed...[Show more]
