Short Description CDPOP is a landscape genetics tool for simulating the emergence of spatial genetic structure in populations resulting from specified landscape processes governing organism movement behavior.
Long Description CDPOP (Cost Distance POPulations) is an individual-based simulator of gene flow in complex landscapes to explain observed population responses and provide a foundation for landscape genetics. It models genetic exchange among spatially located individuals as a function of individual-based movement through mating and dispersal, incorporating population dynamics and the all factors that affect the frequency of an allele in a population (mutation, gene flow, genetic drift, and selection). User’s initially specify individual locations, environmental conditions governing gene flow, spatially-explicit fitness landscapes governing selection, and various genic configurations, and CDPOP models divergence through time as function of individual-based movement, breeding and dispersal as functions of the given landscape surfaces.
