Talk title: Population genetics & ecology of wolves

wilk1_fotrmyslajekTalk outline: The wolf (Canis lupus) is a generalist carnivore, inhabiting contrasting habitats and feeding on a wide variety of species. Despite frequent dispersal over 1000 km, it shows surprising differentiation between contiguous populations. During the seminar we will try to answer the question, how population differentiation can arise in such a continuously distributed generalist species and how this might impact its evolution and conservation?
