Data from: Comparative landscape genetics reveals the evolution of viviparity reduces genetic connectivity in fire salamanders

André Lourenço, João Gonçalves, Filipe Carvalho, Ian J Wang & Guillermo Velo Antón
Evolutionary changes in reproductive mode may affect co-evolving traits, such as dispersal, though this subject remains largely underexplored. The shift from aquatic oviparous or larviparous reproduction to terrestrial viviparous reproduction in some amphibians entails skipping the aquatic larval stage and, thus, greater independence from water. Accordingly, amphibians exhibiting terrestrial viviparous reproduction may potentially disperse across a wider variety of sub-optimal habitats and increase population connectivity in fragmented landscapes compared to aquatic-breeding species. We investigated this...
