Invasion of diverse habitats by few Japanese knotweed genotypes is correlated with epigenetic differentiation.
The expansion of invasive species challenges our understanding of the process of adaptation. Given that the invasion process often entails population bottlenecks, it is surprising that many invasivesExpand

Patterns of DNA methylation throughout a range expansion of an introduced songbird.
The spread of invasive species presents a genetic paradox: how do individuals overcome the genetic barriers associated with introductions (e.g., bottlenecks and founder effects) to become adapted toExpand

Ecological Epigenetics: Beyond MS-AFLP.
Ecological Epigenetics studies the relationship between epigenetic variation and ecologically relevant phenotypic variation. As molecular epigenetic mechanisms often control gene expression, evenExpand

Genetic and epigenetic differences associated with environmental gradients in replicate populations of two salt marsh perennials
While traits and trait plasticity are partly genetically based, investigating epigenetic mechanisms may provide more nuanced understanding of the mechanisms underlying response to environment. UsingExpand

Microsatellite analysis of population structure in the shortfin mako (Isurus oxyrinchus)
Microsatellite analysis of the shortfin mako shark (Isurus oxyrinchus) revealed very weak evidence of population structure. Samples collected from the North Atlantic, South Atlantic, North Pacific,Expand

Ten years of transcriptomics in wild populations: what have we learned about their ecology and evolution?
Molecular ecology has moved beyond the use of a relatively small number of markers, often noncoding, and it is now possible to use whole‐genome measures of gene expression with microarrays and RNAseqExpand

Epigenetic Variation May Compensate for Decreased Genetic Variation with Introductions: A Case Study Using House Sparrows (Passer domesticus) on Two Continents
Epigenetic mechanisms impact several phenotypic traits and may be important for ecology and evolution. The introduced house sparrow (Passer domesticus) exhibits extensive phenotypic variation amongExpand

Broad‐scale latitudinal patterns of genetic diversity among native European and introduced house sparrow (Passer domesticus) populations
Introduced species offer unique opportunities to study evolution in new environments, and some provide opportunities for understanding the mechanisms underlying macroecological patterns. We sought toExpand

Surveillance for microbes and range expansion in house sparrows
Interactions between hosts and parasites influence the success of host introductions and range expansions post-introduction. However, the physiological mechanisms mediating these outcomes are littleExpand

Range expansion of house sparrows (Passer domesticus) in Kenya: evidence of genetic admixture and human-mediated dispersal.
Introduced species offer an opportunity to study the ecological process of range expansions. Recently, 3 mechanisms have been identified that may resolve the genetic paradox (the seemingly unlikelyExpand
