POLDISP 1.0 


 programmed by Juan José Robledo-Arnuncio & Frédéric Austerlitz 

 

Latest release: POLDISP 1.0c (June 2009)

What is POLDISP?

POLDISP is a free software package to estimate contemporary POLLEN DISPERSAL from mother-offspring diploid genotypic data. It contains the necessary programs to apply the two available indirect (non-paternity-based) methods of contemporary pollen dispersal estimation: KINDIST and TWOGENER

POLDISP provides estimates of the following parameters:

  • The average pollen dispersal distance
  • The variance of the pollen dispersal distribution
  • The kurtosis of the pollen dispersal distribution
  • The correlated paternity rate within and among maternal sibships
  • The effective male population density


What kind of data requires POLDISP?

POLDISP requires the spatial coordinates and genotypes of a sample of seed-plants and their respective maternal progenies. Genotypic information must be diploid and codominant.
