1. A test of island biogeographic theory applied to estimates of gene flow in a Fijian bird is largely consistent with neutral expectations
2019. Gyllenhaal, Ethan, Mapel, Xena, Naikatini, Alivereti, Moyle, Robert, and Andersen, Michael. Islands were key to the development of allopatric speciation theory because they are a natural laboratory of repeated barriers to gene flow caused ... Molecular Ecology.

2. Adaptation to drought is coupled with slow growth, but independent from phenology in marginal silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) populations
2020. Csillery, Katalin, Buchmann, Nina, and Fady, Bruno. Drought is one of the most important selection pressures for forest trees in the context of climate change. Yet, the different evolutionary mechani... Evolutionary Applications.

3. After a catastrophe, a little bit of sex is better than nothing: genetic consequences of a major earthquake on asexual and sexual populations
2020. becheler, ronan, Guillemin, Marie-Laure, Stoeckel, Solenn, Mauger, Stéphane, Saunier, Alice, Brante, Antonio, Christophe, Destombe, and Myriam, Valero. Catastrophic events can have profound effects on the demography of a population and consequently, on genetic diversity. The dynamics of post-catast... Evolutionary Applications.

4. Ancient and modern colonization of North America by hemlock woolly adelgid, Adelges tsugae (Hemiptera: Adelgidae), an invasive insect from East Asia
2016. Havill, Nathan P., Shiyake, Shigehiko, Lamb Galloway, Ashley, Foottit, Robert G., Yu, Guoyue, Paradis, Annnie, Elkinton, Joseph, Montgomery, Michael E., Sano, Masakazu, Caccone, Adalgisa, and Paradis, Annie. Hemlock woolly adelgid, Adelges tsugae, is an invasive pest of hemlock trees (Tsuga) in eastern North America. We used 14 microsatellites and mitoc... Molecular Ecology.

5. Balancing selection in Pattern Recognition Receptor signalling pathways is associated with gene function and pleiotropy in a wild rodent
2020. Råberg, Lars, Lundberg, Max, Zhong, Xiuqin, Konrad, Anna, and Olsen, Remi-André. Pathogen-mediated balancing selection is commonly considered to play an important role in the maintenance of genetic diversity, in particular in im... Molecular Ecology. Lund University and Stockholm University.
6. Data from: A comparative assessment of SNP and microsatellite markers for assigning parentage in a socially monogamous bird
2016. Kaiser, Sara, Taylor, Scott A., Chen, Nancy, Sillett, Scott, Bondra, Eliana R., Webster, Michael, Kaiser, Sara A., and Sillett, T. Scott. Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are preferred over microsatellite markers in many evolutionary studies, but have only recently been applied ... Molecular Ecology Resources.

7. Data from: A fast-evolving X-linked duplicate of importin-α2 is overexpressed in sex-ratio drive in Drosophila neotestacea
2018. Pieper, Kathleen E., Unckless, Robert L., and Dyer, Kelly A. Selfish genetic elements that manipulate gametogenesis to achieve a transmission advantage are known as meiotic drivers. Sex-ratio X-chromosomes (S... Molecular Ecology. University of Georgia and University of Kansas.
8. Data from: A genetics-based approach confirms immune associations with life history across multiple populations of an aquatic vertebrate (Gasterosteus aculeatus)
2018. Whiting, James R., Magalhaes, Isabel S., Singkam, Abdul R., Robertson, Shaun, D'Agostino, Daniele, Bradley, Janette E., MacColl, Andrew D.C., and MacColl, Andrew D. C. Understanding how wild immune variation covaries with other traits can reveal how costs and trade-offs shape immune evolution in the wild. Divergen... Molecular Ecology.

9. Data from: A genome scan for selection signatures comparing farmed Atlantic salmon with two wild populations: testing co-localization among outlier markers, candidate genes, and QTLs for production traits
2016. Liu, Lei, Ang, Keng Pee, Elliott, J. A. K., Kent, Matthew Peter, Lien, Sigbjørn, MacDonald, Danielle, and Boulding, Elizabeth Grace. Comparative genome scans can be used to identify chromosome regions, but not traits, that are putatively under selection. Identification of targete... Evolutionary Applications.
