Migrants between plant populations may represent a random sample of the donor population or may be related, being identical in the extreme. There is considerable potential for kin-structured migration in many plant species through the co-dispersal of seeds from single individuals. Through simulation experiments we have shown that the greater the level of relatedness of migrants, the less a given level of migration counterbalances the effect of genetic drift among populations.
