Data for: Are immigrants outbred and unrelated? Testing standard assumptions in a wild metapopulation

Lisa Dickel, Peter Arcese, Pirmin Nietlisbach, Lukas Keller & Jane Reid
Immigration into small recipient populations is expected to alleviate inbreeding and increase genetic variation, and hence facilitate population persistence through genetic and/or evolutionary rescue. Such expectations depend on three standard assumptions: that immigrants are outbred, unrelated to existing natives at arrival, and unrelated to each other. These assumptions are rarely explicitly verified, including in key field systems in evolutionary ecology. Yet, they could be violated due to non-random or repeated immigration from adjacent small populations....
