Inferring Population History and Demography Using Microsatellites, Mitochondrial DNA, and Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) Genes
Abstract Microsatellites and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) have traditionally been used in population genetics because of their variability and presumed neutrality, whereas genes of the majorExpand

Variation in offspring sex ratio of a long‐lived sexually dimorphic raptor, the Eastern Imperial Eagle Aquila heliaca
Sex ratio theory attempts to explain observed variation in offspring sex ratio at both the population and the brood levels. In the context of low-fecundity organisms producing high-investmentExpand

The Endangered White Sands pupfish (Cyprinodon tularosa) genome reveals low diversity and heterogenous patterns of differentiation
The White Sands pupfish (Cyprinodon tularosa), endemic to New Mexico in Southwestern North America, is of conservation concern due in part to invasive species, chemical pollution, and groundwaterExpand
Genetic load has potential in large populations but is realized in small populations
Populations with higher genetic diversity and larger effective sizes have greater evolutionary capacity (i.e., higher adaptive potential) to respond to ecological stressors. We are interested in howExpand
Reduction of Automobile and Aircraft Collisions with Wildlife in Indiana
Conflicts between wildlife and human interests have increased in recent decades due to growing human populations and the resulting expansion of anthropogenic pressures into wildlife habitat. TheExpand
