Combining ecological niche-based modelling and landscape genetics for conservation planning of endangered North African gazelles

Combining ecological niche-based modelling and landscape genetics for conservation planning of endangered North African gazelles

The main aim of this study is to address conservation planning of endangered North African antelopes (Gazella dorcas and G. cuvieri). Particularly, it is aimed to develop spatially‐explicit models of species occurrence and of genetical variation in fragmented gazelle populations for assisting local conservation plans. Distribution data, ecological niche‐based models and geostatistical models will be combined with genetic variability. The integrative research strategy will allow gaining insights into the genetic structure of gazelle populations and the availability of suitable areas for their occurrence and potential reintroduction. It’s intend to provide conservation managers with framework data for conservation planning of populations.
