Data from: Female-biased dispersal and non-random gene flow of MC1R variants do not result in a migration load in barn owls

Valérie Ducret, Michael Schaub, Jérôme Goudet & Alexandre Roulin
Non-random gene flow is a widely neglected force in evolution and ecology. This genotype-dependent dispersal is difficult to assess, yet can impact the genetic variation of natural populations and their fitness. In this work, we demonstrate a high immigration rate of barn owls (Tyto alba) inside a Swiss population surveyed during 15 years. Using 10 microsatellite loci as an indirect method to characterize dispersal, two third of the genetic tests failed to detect a female-biased...
