It's about time: the temporal dynamics of phenotypic selection in the wild.
Selection is a central process in nature. Although our understanding of the strength and form of selection has increased, a general understanding of the temporal dynamics of selection in nature isExpand

Patterns of genetic variation in anthropogenically impacted populations
Genetic variation is considered critical for allowing natural populations to adapt to their changing environment, and yet the effects of human disturbance on genetic variation in the wild are poorlyExpand

Long‐term natal site‐fidelity by immature lemon sharks (Negaprion brevirostris) at a subtropical island
Although many sharks begin their life confined in nursery habitats, it is unknown how rapidly they disperse away from their natal area once they leave the nursery. We examine this issue in immatureExpand

The spatial patterns of directional phenotypic selection.
Local adaptation, adaptive population divergence and speciation are often expected to result from populations evolving in response to spatial variation in selection. Yet, we lack a comprehensiveExpand

When bigger is not better: selection against large size, high condition and fast growth in juvenile lemon sharks
Selection acting on large marine vertebrates may be qualitatively different from that acting on terrestrial or freshwater organisms, but logistical constraints have thus far precluded selectionExpand

The evolution of phenotypic plasticity in response to anthropogenic disturbance
Questions: Do evolutionary changes in phenotypic plasticity occur after anthropogenic disturbance? Do these changes tend to be increases or decreases in plasticity? How do these evolutionary patterExpand

After continents divide: comparative phylogeography of reef fishes from the Red Sea and Indian Ocean
Aim: The Red Sea is a biodiversity hotspot characterized by a unique marine fauna and high endemism. This sea began forming c. 24 million years ago with the separation of the African and ArabianExpand

A genetic assessment of polyandry and breeding‐site fidelity in lemon sharks
We here employ 11 microsatellite markers and recently developed litter reconstruction methods to infer mating system parameters (i.e. polyandry and breeding‐site fidelity) at a lemon shark nurseryExpand

Are indirect genetic benefits associated with polyandry? Testing predictions in a natural population of lemon sharks
Multiple mating has clear fitness benefits for males, but uncertain benefits and costs for females. We tested for indirect genetic benefits of polyandry in a natural population, by using data from aExpand

Precipitation drives global variation in natural selection
Climate-driven selection Climate change will fundamentally alter many aspects of the natural world. To understand how species may adapt to this change, we must understand which aspects of theExpand
