In 2006, Brad McRae (1966-2017) published Isolation by
which uses electrical circuit theory to explain gene flow. In this
model, animals, plants, humans and genes follow the path of least
resistance – much like electrical current – in order to find food, water
and accommodating habitats.
Since then, hundreds of
have been published using this research, including Circuitscape: A
Tool for Landscape Ecology
and Circuitscape: Modeling Landscape Connectivity to Promote
Conservation and Human Health
were created by Brad
Viral Shah, Ranjan
Anantharaman and Tanmay
Mohapatra to enable biologists,
ecologists, geneticists and other scientists to put this theory to work
and to leverage Julia’s superior speed, performance and ease of use.
Circuitscape has been used to model the
spread of HIV in
protect tigers in
model landscape connectivity for bobcats in New
and understand the effect of climate change on animal migration in
Circuitscape supporters include
the Wilburforce Foundation and the Cougar Fund.
