Data from: A portrait of a sucker using landscape genetics: how colonization and life history undermine the idealized dendritic metapopulation

Sarah J. Salisbury, Gregory R. McCracken, Donald Keefe, Robert Perry & Daniel E. Ruzzante
Dendritic metapopulations have been attributed unique properties by in silico studies, including an elevated genetic diversity relative to a panmictic population of equal total size. These predictions have not been rigorously tested in nature, nor has there been full consideration of the interacting effects among contemporary landscape features, colonization history and life history traits of the target species. We tested for the effects of dendritic structure as well as the relative importance of life history,...
