Herbstsemester (jährlich wiederkehrende Veranstaltung)
Landscape genetics is a new, rapidly evolving scientific field of both basic and applied interest. Landscape genetics builds on concepts and methods from landscape ecology and population genetics. Researchers and practitioners make increasing use of landscape genetic thinking and methods in their own work. This winter school introduces students to major concepts and methods of landscape genetics, i.e. (i) the study of landscape effects on dispersal and gene flow and (ii) the study of the interactions between the environment and adaptive genetic variation. It specifically focuses on current state-of-the-art methods and hands-on exercises. The winter school is specifically aimed at the needs of advanced students (Master, PhD and postdocs).
(1) Types of landscape ecological data for landscape genetic analysis (GIS).
