Microsatellites within genes: structure, function, and evolution.
SSRs within genes evolve through mutational processes similar to those for SSRs located in other genomic regions including replication slippage, point mutation, and recombination and may provide a molecular basis for fast adaptation to environmental changes in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes.
Microsatellites: genomic distribution, putative functions and mutational mechanisms: a review
The available data related to SSR distribution in coding and noncoding regions of genomes and SSR functional importance is summarized to help clarify the role of replication slippage and recombination in SSR variation.

The objective of this paper is to compare and contrast the evolutionary patterns and adaptive strategies of completely subterranean mammals and to suggest a theory specifying the selective forces operating in this unique environment.
Retrotransposon BARE-1 and Its Role in Genome Evolution in the Genus Hordeum
The replicative retrotransposon life cycle offers the potential for explosive increases in copy number and consequent inflation of genome size. The BARE-1 retrotransposon family of barley is
The Evolutionary Significance of Genetic Diversity: Ecological, Demographic and Life History Correlates
The evolutionary significance of genetic diversity of proteins in nature remains controversial despite the numerous protein studies conducted electrophoretically during the last two decades.
Genome evolution of wild barley (Hordeum spontaneum) by BARE-1 retrotransposon dynamics in response to sharp microclimatic divergence.
Examination of genome size and BARE-1 insertion patterns and number in wild barley, Hordeum spontaneum, in Evolution Canyon, Lower Nahal Oren, Mount Carmel, Israel, suggests adaptive selection for increasing genome size through retrotransposon activity is reflected.
Fluctuating Asymmetry: Methods, Theory, and Applications
Old and new methods of measuring fluctuating asymmetry are reviewed, including measures of dispersion, landmark methods for shape asymmetry, and continuous symmetry measures, and attempts to explain conflicting results.
Multiple Genetic Processes Result in Heterogeneous Rates of Evolution within the Major Cluster Disease Resistance Genes in Lettucew⃞
Two types of RGC2 genes (Type I and Type II) were initially distinguished based on the pattern of sequence identities between their 3′ regions, and the high frequency of sequence exchange and the presence of numerous chimeric R GC2 genes in nature were confirmed.
Mosaic Evolution of Subterranean Mammals: Regression, Progression, and Global Convergence
This book draws together the burgeoning literature about all aspects of the biology of subterranean mammals, beginning with their evolutionary history and the processes that led to the subterranean way of life, and goes on to review ecology, behaviour, and physiology within the context of the highly stressful subterranean context.
