Perfluorooctanesulfonate and other fluorochemicals in the serum of American Red Cross adult blood donors.
Perfluorooctanesulfonyl fluoride-based products have included surfactants, paper and packaging treatments, and surface protectants (e.g., for carpet, upholstery, textile). Depending on the specificExpand

Landscape‐scale genetic variation in a forest outbreak species, the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae)
The mountain pine beetle Dendroctonus ponderosae is a native species currently experiencing large‐scale outbreaks in western North American pine forests. We sought to describe the pattern of geneticExpand

Parallel tagged amplicon sequencing reveals major lineages and phylogenetic structure in the North American tiger salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum) species complex
Modern analytical methods for population genetics and phylogenetics are expected to provide more accurate results when data from multiple genome‐wide loci are analysed. We present the results of anExpand

The influence of locus number and information content on species delimitation: an empirical test case in an endangered Mexican salamander
Perhaps the most important recent advance in species delimitation has been the development of model‐based approaches to objectively diagnose species diversity from genetic data. Additionally, theExpand

Clinal Variation in Calls of Native and Introduced Populations of Eleutherodactylus coqui
We determined whether Eleutherodactylus coqui exhibits clinal variation in male advertisement call parameters across its native Puerto Rico and introduced range of Hawaii. In the laboratory, weExpand

Strong founder effects and low genetic diversity in introduced populations of Coqui frogs
The success of non‐native species may depend on the genetic resources maintained through the invasion process. The Coqui (Eleutherodactylus coqui), a frog endemic to Puerto Rico, was introduced toExpand

A population genetic signature of human releases in an invasive ladybeetle
Biological invasions have been accelerated by a variety of human activities. Propagule pressure, the number of introduced individuals and independent introductions, is probably to be influenced byExpand

Genetic basis of a color pattern polymorphism in the Coqui Frog Eleutherodactylus coqui.
Many species of frog exhibit striking color and pattern polymorphisms, but the genetic bases of these traits are not known for most species. The coqui frog, Eleutherodactylus coqui, a species endemicExpand

A support vector machine based test for incongruence between sets of trees in tree space
We propose a nonparametric goodness-of-fit test for two empirical distributions of gene trees, and we developed the software GeneOut to estimate a p-value for the test. Expand
