Data from: Cityscape genetics: structural vs. functional connectivity of an urban lizard population

Joscha Beninde, Stephan Feldmeier, Maike Werner, Daniel Peroverde, Ulrich Schulte, Axel Hochkirch & Michael Veith
Functional connectivity is essential for the long-term persistence of populations. However, many studies assess connectivity with a focus on structural connectivity only. Cityscapes, namely urban landscapes, are particularly dynamic and include numerous potential anthropogenic barriers to animal movements, such as roads, traffic or buildings. To assess and compare structural connectivity of habitats and functional connectivity of gene flow of an urban lizard, we here combined species distribution models (SDMs) with an individual-based landscape genetic optimization...
