[…] blois et al. ), we ran simulations using a generation-by-generation coalescent algorithm that can simulate spatially limited dispersal (and resulting background genetic structure), implemented in ibdsim 2.0 (leblois et al. , ). consistent with our g. marmoratus data set for each stream, simulated data sets had 90 diploid individuals genotyped at 8 independent microsatellite loci. mutations […]

[…] to restrict ourselves to analyzing regions that could only arise from a very small number of recent generations, up to and including those from third cousins. to examine this, we used the r-package ibdsim (see section on the predicted number of meioses from observed autozygous tract lengths) to simulate ibd sections in individuals separated by varying numbers of meioses. we then observed […]
