Abstract

We propose a new model to make use of georeferenced genetic data for inferring the location and shape of a hybrid zone. The model output includes the posterior distribution of a parameter that quantifies the width of the hybrid zone. The model proposed is implemented in the GUI and command-line versions of the Geneland program versions ≥3.3.0. Information about the program can be found on http://www2.imm.dtu.dk/gigu/Geneland/.
