Measuring dispersal in birds by mapping genealogies

Measuring dispersal in birds by mapping genealogies

This one was a while in the making, but its finally out: my new paper published in PLoS One. This work took the spatial genetic data collected from Black-Capped Vireos to its logical extreme, by using it to estimate parentage information within the population, and infer offspring dispersal distances based on that data. Happy to see this get published, and thanks to a skeptical anonymous reviewer, who really helped make it a better paper.
