Evolutionary Paths Underlying Flower Color Variation in Antirrhinum
To understand evolutionary paths connecting diverse biological forms, we defined a three-dimensional genotypic space separating two flower color morphs of Antirrhinum. A hybrid zone between morphsExpand

Genetic architecture and balancing selection: the life and death of differentiated variants
Balancing selection describes any form of natural selection, which results in the persistence of multiple variants of a trait at intermediate frequencies within populations. By offering up a snapshotExpand

Evolution of flower color pattern through selection on regulatory small RNAs
How the snapdragon chooses its color In some snapdragons, a yellow spot in a field of magenta shows the bee the best place to go. Flowers of a related subspecies are mainly yellow with magenta veinsExpand

Selection and gene flow shape genomic islands that control floral guides
Significance Populations often show “islands of divergence” in the genome. Analysis of divergence between subspecies of Antirrhinum that differ in flower color patterns shows that sharp peaks inExpand

Genome structure and evolution of Antirrhinum majus L
Snapdragon (Antirrhinum majus L.), a member of the Plantaginaceae family, is an important model for plant genetics and molecular studies on plant growth and development, transposon biology andExpand

Response to Comment on "Evolutionary Paths Underlying Flower Color Variation in Antirrhinum"
Rausher's assertion that divergent selection across a hybrid zone is incompatible with adaptive ridges, although intuitively reasonable, is incorrect on several fronts. His alternative hypothesis ofExpand
