WIND SHAPES GENETICS. “We show that wind shapes three independent aspects of landscape genetics in plants with wind pollination or seed dispersal: populations linked by stronger winds are more genetically similar, populations linked by directionally imbalanced winds exhibit asymmetric gene flow ratios, and downwind populations have higher genetic diversity. The geography of both wind strength and wind direction play important roles in shaping large-scale genetic patterns across the world’s forests.”
