The effective mutation rate at Y chromosome short tandem repeats, with application to human population-divergence time.
We estimate an effective mutation rate at an average Y chromosome short-tandem repeat locus as 6.9x10-4 per 25 years, with a standard deviation across loci of 5.7x10-4, using data on microsatelliteExpand

ALCOHOL DEHYDROGENASE AND GLYCEROL‐3‐PHOSPHATE DEHYDROGENASE CLINES IN DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER ON DIFFERENT CONTINENTS
Some of the most persuasive evidence that natural selection can maintain allozymic variation derives from work on polymorphisms for electrophoretically "fast" and "slow" enzymes of alcoholExpand

The Genetic Structure of Pacific Islanders
Human genetic diversity in the Pacific has not been adequately sampled, particularly in Melanesia. As a result, population relationships there have been open to debate. A genome scan of autosomalExpand

Microsatellites: consensus and controversy.
Microsatellite DNA loci have recently been adopted for many biological applications. Comparative studies across a wide range of species has revealed many details of their mutational properties andExpand

Using molecular methods to understand the Gondwanan affinities of the New Zealand biota: three case studies
The application of new molecular technologies is central to the search for causal mechanisms capable of explaining the modern-day biogeography of the southern continents. Projects have previouslyExpand

Are 'Cultures' Inherited? Multidisciplinary Perspectives on the Origins and Migrations of Austronesian-Speaking Peoples Prior to 1000 BC
This chapter examines the evidence for the movement of Austronesian-speaking peoples from Taiwan into the Philippines and beyond, drawing upon data from comparative linguistics, archaeology andExpand

Population characteristics of DNA fingerprints in humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae).
Humpback whales exhibit a remarkable social organization that is characterized by seasonal long-distance migration (> 10,000 km/year) between summer feeding grounds in high latitudes and winterExpand

GENETIC STRUCTURE OF BLUE DUCK (HYMENOLAIMUS MALACORHYNCHOS) POPULATIONS REVEALED BY DNA FINGERPRINTING
DNA-fingerprinting analysis of Blue Ducks (Hymenolaimus malacorhynchos) with two minisatellite probes indicated a decrease in genetic similarity (proportion of DNA bands shared) as geographicExpand

Maori origins, Y‐chromosome haplotypes and implications for human history in the Pacific
An assessment of 28 pertinent binary genetic markers on the non‐recombining portion of the Y chromosome (NRY) in New Zealand Maori and other relevant populations has revealed a diverse geneticExpand

Latitudinal relationships of esterase-6 and phosphoglucomutase gene frequencies in Drosophila melanogaster
SummaryGeographic variation in Esterase-6 (Est-6) and Phosphoglucomutase (Pgm) gene frequencies in Australasian populations of Drosophila melanogaster are compared with analogous data collated fromExpand
