Population biology of invasive species.
TLDR
Assessment of evolutionary processes may be key features in determining whether invasive species establish and spread and studies of genetic diversity and evolutionary changes should be useful for managing invasiveness. Expand
Distortion of allele frequency distributions provides a test for recent population bottlenecks.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that population bottlenecks cause a characteristic mode-shift distortion in the distribution of allele frequencies at selectively neutral loci, and a qualitative graphical method is illustrated and evaluated for detecting a bottleneck-induced distortion of allele frequency distributions. Expand
Conservation and the genetics of populations
TLDR
The author reveals that the inbreeding effect of small population size reduces population growth rate in mosquitofish and the importance of rapid adaptation and conservation in the context of conservation. Expand
The problems with hybrids: setting conservation guidelines
TLDR
This work provides a categorization of hybridization to help guide management decisions and recognizes that nearly every situation involving hybridization is different enough that general rules are not likely to be effective. Expand
Estimation of census and effective population sizes: the increasing usefulness of DNA-based approaches
TLDR
This work reviews the kinds and applications of estimators of both NC and Ne, and the often undervalued and misunderstood ratio of effective-to-census size (Ne/NC). Expand
Tetraploidy and the Evolution of Salmonid Fishes
TLDR
It is proposed that genome doubling has taken place at least once in the evolution of vertebrates and isozyme studies that are consistent with this idea are described. Expand
What can genetics tell us about population connectivity?
TLDR
Alternative approaches for assessing population connectivity are described, highlighting the value of combining genetic data with capture‐mark‐recapture methods or other direct measures of movement to elucidate the complex role of dispersal in natural populations. Expand
Genomics and the future of conservation genetics
TLDR
This work identifies and discusses those problems for which genomics will be most valuable for curbing the accelerating worldwide loss of biodiversity and provides guidance on whichgenomics tools and approaches will bemost appropriate to use for different aspects of conservation. Expand
Harnessing genomics for delineating conservation units.
TLDR
A new framework to integrate data on neutral and adaptive markers to protect biodiversity is provided and it is proposed that the use of neutral versus adaptive markers should not be viewed as alternatives. Expand
Usefulness of molecular markers for detecting population bottlenecks via monitoring genetic change
TLDR
The variance test was most powerful; it provided an 85% probability of detecting a bottleneck of size Ne = 10 when monitoring five microsatellite loci and sampling 30 individuals both before and one generation after the bottleneck. Expand
