Our study examined the influence of landscape features on population genetic structure and gene flow of muskrat. A single genetic cluster was identified and no genetic differences were found among the watersheds as a result of high levels of gene flow. Population genetic structure was not influenced by landscape composition, and landscape features had a limited effect on gene flow. Open landscapes and urban areas seemed to restrict but not prevent gene flow and roads may be used as corridors for movements.
