Many studies in landscape genetics have used GIS-based data to show that distances based on topography, habitat types and river drainages (for aquatic organisms) provide better predictions of genetic distances between populations than do simple geographic distances. This paper reviews how to integrate GIS generated information with genetic data. Very useful, we have plenty of genotyped material and it’s about time for a more detailed/fine characterisation of the causes behind genetic structure.
