Divergent evolutionary processes associated with colonization of offshore islands
Oceanic islands have been a test ground for evolutionary theory, but here, we focus on the possibilities for evolutionary study created by offshore islands. These can be colonized through variousExpand

Comparative evaluation of potential indicators and temporal sampling protocols for monitoring genetic erosion
Genetic biodiversity contributes to individual fitness, species' evolutionary potential, and ecosystem stability. Temporal monitoring of the genetic status and trends of wild populations' geneticExpand

Local selection and population structure in a deep‐sea fish, the roundnose grenadier (Coryphaenoides rupestris)
Local populations within a species can become isolated by stochastic or adaptive processes, though it is most commonly the former that we quantify. Using presumably neutral markers we can assess theExpand

Bathymetric barriers promoting genetic structure in the deepwater demersal fish tusk (Brosme brosme)
Population structuring in the North Atlantic deepwater demersal fish tusk (Brosme brosme) was studied with microsatellite DNA analyses. Screening eight samples from across the range of the speciesExpand

Evolution of population genetic structure of the British roe deer by natural and anthropogenic processes (Capreolus capreolus)
Human influence typically impacts on natural populations of conservation interest. These interactions are varied and sometimes complex, and may be negative and unintended or associated withExpand

Nineteen new microsatellite loci for the blue hake (Antimora rostrata)
We isolated nineteen new microsatellites for the deep-sea fish Antimora rostrata. These loci are highly polymorphic, with allele number ranging from 4 to 22 and heterozygosity ranging from 0.525 toExpand

Phylogeography and population history of Leopardus guigna, the smallest American felid
Abstract The guigna (Leopardus guigna) is the smallest and most-restricted New World cat species, inhabiting only around 160,000 km2 of temperate rain forests in southern South America and isExpand

Phylogenomics of the genus Tursiops and closely related Delphininae reveals extensive reticulation among lineages and provides inference about eco-evolutionary drivers.
Phylogeographic inference has provided extensive insight into the relative roles of geographical isolation and ecological processes during evolutionary radiations. However, the importance ofExpand

Nine new microsatellite loci for the roundnose grenadier (Coryphaenoides rupestris) with four showing cross-amplification in the shortbeard grenadier (C. brevibarbis)
We isolated nine new microsatellites for the deep-sea fish Coryphaenoides rupestris. These loci are highly polymorphic, with allele number ranging from 14 to 42 and heterozygosity ranging from 0.647Expand

Differentiation at mitochondrial and nuclear loci between the blesbok (Damaliscus pygargusphillipsi) and bontebok (D. p.pygargus): implications for conservation strategy
Damaliscus pygargus is an endemic species in South Africa belonging to the contemporary antelope tribe Alcelaphine. The species has been subdivided into two subspecies based upon phenotypicExpand
