Metapopulation dynamics as an explanation to the genetic structure of the desert locust populations: parameter exploration
The desert locust is an economically important pest insect which undergoes stochastic boom and bust cycles in population size. During the non-plague periods the desert locust exists in scattered patchy populations which are prone to extinction because of climatic events. Significant genetic divergence between such populations along the Red Sea coast of Eritrea has been reported. A previous study used computer modelling to demonstrate that metapopulation dynamics could produce such divergencedoi:10.6084/m9.figshare.1108026.v1 fatcat:g2herofkfnhzxln5cgk3jln6sy
