Genetic consequences of extinctions and recolonization in fragmented habitats

Genetic consequences of extinctions and recolonization in fragmented habitats

Biotic interactions and global change: 217-233

This chapter discusses the genetic consequences of habitat fragmentation with an emphasis on the effects of local extinction/recolonization on the maintenance of genetic variation. It is shown that mathematical models predict that, in general, extinction/recolonization can contribute to the loss of genetic variation even in species that are otherwise abundant.
