Table 2 Ho across simulated populations in the 200th year after reintroduction. Simulations were carried out for 3 different movement syndromes (shy, intermediate, bold) and 3 sizes of the founder population with “connectivity” patch landscapes: CS1, i.e. 100% matrix – movement out of source patch possible, and CS3, i.e. 100% barrier – movement out of the source patch impossible

From: The boon and bane of boldness: movement syndrome as saviour and sink for population genetic diversity

N founders Landscape MS 1: Shy MS 2: Intermediate MS 3: Bold

CS1 0.38 0.36 0.29

  1. "a" denotes founder conditions that result in approximately equal Ho under CS1 and CS3 (compensation of lost diversity through increased founder population size)
