Of glaciers and refugia: a decade of study sheds new light on the phylogeography of northwestern North America
Glacial cycles have played a dominant role in shaping the genetic structure and distribution of biota in northwestern North America. The two major ice age refugia of Beringia and the PacificExpand

Bioinformatic processing of RAD-seq data dramatically impacts downstream population genetic inference
1. Restriction site-associated DNA sequencing (RAD-seq) provides high-resolution population genomic data at low cost, and has become an important component in ecological and evolutionary studies. AsExpand

Habitat selection predicts genetic relatedness in an alpine ungulate.
Landscape heterogeneity plays an integral role in shaping ecological and evolutionary processes. Despite links between the two disciplines, ecologists and population geneticists have taken differentExpand

Past bottlenecks and current population fragmentation of endangered huemul deer (Hippocamelus bisulcus): implications for preservation of genetic diversity
Small populations in fragmented habitats can lose genetic variation through drift and inbreeding. The huemul (Hippocamelus bisulcus) is an endangered deer endemic to the southern Andes of Chile andExpand

Does reduced heterozygosity influence dispersal? A test using spatially structured populations in an alpine ungulate
Despite having a profound effect on population dynamics, the reasons that animals disperse are poorly understood. Evolutionary explanations have focused on inbreeding and competition, where theExpand

Phylogenetic relationships among Nearctic shrews of the genus Sorex (Insectivora, Soricidae) inferred from combined cytochrome b and inter-SINE fingerprint data using Bayesian analysis.
The field of molecular systematics has relied heavily on mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis since its inception. Despite the obvious utility of mtDNA, such data inevitably only presents a limitedExpand

Temporal dynamics of genetic variability in a mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus) population
The association between population dynamics and genetic variability is of fundamental importance for both evolutionary and conservation biology. We combined long‐term population monitoring andExpand

Genome Sequence of Peacock Reveals the Peculiar Case of a Glittering Bird
The unique ornamental features and extreme sexual traits of Peacock have always intrigued scientists and naturalists for centuries. However, the genomic basis of these phenotypes are yet unknown.Expand

Cophylogeny of Nosema (Microsporidia: Nosematidae) and Bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae) Suggests Both Cospeciation and a Host-switch
Abstract Some microsporidian parasites belonging to the genus Nosema infect bees. Previous phylogenies of these parasites have produced alternative, conflicting relationships. We analyzed separately,Expand
