Detecting hierarchical levels of connectivity in a population of Acacia tortilis at the northern edge of the species’ global distribution: Combining classical population genetics and network analyses

PLoS One
PMCID: 5896914
PMID: 29649222
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0194901

[…] tion in Israel and Jordan, over a relatively small geographic range. The basic level of differentiation was predicted a priori to be the groups of trees sampled in distinct wadis. The network method, Netstruct, and the pair-wise Fst analysis (between wadis) supported this basic level of differentiation (subpopulations). Additionally, evidence was provided for a north-south gradient of differentiat […]


Conservation priorities for endangered Indian tigers through a genomic lens

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5575265
PMID: 28851952
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-09748-3

[…] f population structure, a principal components analysis (PCA) was performed using an R package. Additionally, a network-based approach was also used to infer hierarchical clustering as implemented in NetStruct. The program constructs a network by connecting individuals above a genetic similarity threshold. This is followed by community detection to identify groups of individuals much more closely […]


Life history and past demography maintain genetic structure, outcrossing rate, contemporary pollen gene flow of an understory herb in a highly fragmented rainforest

PMCID: 5183091
PMID: 28028460
DOI: 10.7717/peerj.2764

[…] Med, 7 Med, 9 Lrg, 11 Lrg, and 12 Lrg), while cluster II and III included two main populations (8 Med, 10 Lrg and 3 SM, 4 SM, respectively) ().As in the STRUCTURE analysis, the constructed network in NetStruct also detected three groups or communities with significant community partitions (p < 0.05). The network indicates that these communities are dispersed over the landscape without a clear patt […]
