Genetic Composition of Laboratory Stocks of the Self-Fertilizing Fish Kryptolebias marmoratus: A Valuable Resource for Experimental Research
The hermaphroditic Mangrove Killifish, Kryptolebias marmoratus, is the world's only vertebrate that routinely self-fertilizes. As such, highly inbred and presumably isogenic “clonal” lineages of thisExpand

Microsatellite documentation of male-mediated outcrossing between inbred laboratory strains of the self-fertilizing mangrove killifish (Kryptolebias Marmoratus).
Primers for 36 microsatellite loci were developed and employed to characterize genetic stocks and detect possible outcrossing between highly inbred laboratory strains of the self-fertilizing mangroveExpand

Concerted Evolution of Repetitive DNA Sequences in Eukaryotes
A large fraction, sometimes the largest fraction, of a eukaryotic genome consists of repeated DNA sequences. Copy numbers range from several thousand to millions per diploid genome. All classes ofExpand

NICHE RELATIONSHIPS OF CLONAL AND SEXUAL FISH IN A HETEROGENEOUS LANDSCAPE
We examined spatial, physiological, and morphological niche relationships in a Phoxinus eos–neogaeus gynogenetic complex of cyprinid fish in five drainages influenced by beaver (Castor canadensis)Expand

A new method for predicting shoreline positions from historical data
Shoreline rate-of-change values are routinely extrapolated into the future in order to predict the expected location of a shoreline. These rate values represent linear summaries of the processes,Expand

Genetic variation in clonal vertebrates detected by simple-sequence DNA fingerprinting.
The measurement of clonal heterogeneity is central to understanding the evolutionary and population genetics of the roughly 50 species of vertebrates that lack effective genetic recombination.Expand

PHENOTYPIC CONSEQUENCES OF GENETIC VARIATION IN A GYNOGENETIC COMPLEX OF PHOXINUS EOS‐NEOGAEUS CLONAL FISH (PISCES: CYPRINIDAE) INHABITING A HETEROGENEOUS ENVIRONMENT
Abstract We examined the genetic composition, habitat use, and morphological variation of a Phoxinus eos‐neogaeus unisexual hybrid complex and its sexually reproducing progenitor species inhabitingExpand

Extreme clonal diversity and divergence in populations of a selfing hermaphroditic fish.
Recombination is unknown in natural populations of Rivulus marmoratus, a selfing hermaphrodite, and genetic variation is likely due to mutation alone. DNA fingerprinting with an array ofExpand

Global Rd Optimization when Probes are Expensive : the GROPE Algorithm
A global optimization algorithm i s introduced which generalizes Kushner’s univariate search [1]. It aims to minimize the number o f probes (function evaluations) required for a g i v e n confidenceExpand
