(2010)two-step causal modeling approach, where IBRwater|IBRwater + roads indicates a partial Mantel test between genetic distance and IBRwater partialling out the effects of IBRwater + roads, and IBRwater + roads|IBRwater indicates a partial Mantel test between genetic distance and IBRwater + roads partialling out the effects of IBRwater.
