Applying coalescent-based genetic simulations to the conservation of endangered species

By Daniel Bartels • June 19th, 2015

New analytical methods have recently been developed to use molecular data to estimate demographic fluctuations over time. These methods take advantage of coalescent theory and have a great relevance in a number of areas including wildlife conservation. Their application provides a unique opportunity to extrapolate vital information that would not otherwise be accessible. However wemore…
