Summary

Functional connectivity, quantified using landscape genetics, can inform conservation through the identification of factors linking genetic structure to landscape mechanisms. We used breeding habitat metrics, landscape attributes and indices of grouse abundance, to compare fit between structural connectivity and genetic differentiation within five long-established Sage Grouse Management Zones (MZ) I-V using microsatellite genotypes from 6,844 Greater Sage-Grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) collected across their 10.7 million-km2 range. We estimated structural connectivity using a circuit theory based approach where we built resistance surfaces using thresholds dividing the landscape into ‘habitat’ and ‘non-habitat’. Nodes were clusters [...]
