Karis H. Baker and A. Rus Hoelzel Evolution of population genetic structure of the British roe deer by natural and anthropogenic processes (Capreolus capreolus) Ecology and Evolution 3
This study explores the relationship between animal behavior, historical processes, and the evolutionary mechanisms that generate population structure and ultimately promote speciation. In particular, an assessment comparing surviving indigenous roe deer populations with those impacted by bottlenecks and introductions provides inference on the relative importance of natural processes associated with dispersal behavior, and stochastic processes. We found that apparently natural processes of short-range population founding generated a pattern of population structure similar to that seen in a region impacted by stochastic events.
