Microsatellites provide insight into contrasting mating patterns in arribada vs. non‐arribada olive ridley sea turtle rookeries
Molecular studies of sea turtles have shown that the frequency of multiple paternity (MP) varies between species, and between rookeries of the same species. This study uses nuclear microsatelliteExpand

Multiple paternity, relatedness and genetic diversity in Acromyrmex leaf–cutter ants
Multiple queen–mating occurs in many social insects, but high degrees of multiple paternity have only been found in honeybees and some yellowjacket wasps. Here we report the first case of an antExpand

A resource of genome‐wide single‐nucleotide polymorphisms generated by RAD tag sequencing in the critically endangered European eel
Reduced representation genome sequencing such as restriction‐site‐associated DNA (RAD) sequencing is finding increased use to identify and genotype large numbers of single‐nucleotide polymorphismsExpand

Adaptive divergence in a high gene flow environment: Hsc70 variation in the European flounder (Platichthys flesus L.)
Little is known about local adaptations in marine fishes since population genetic surveys in these species have typically not applied genetic markers subject to selection. In this study, we used aExpand

Genome‐wide single‐generation signatures of local selection in the panmictic European eel
Next‐generation sequencing and the collection of genome‐wide data allow identifying adaptive variation and footprints of directional selection. Using a large SNP data set from 259 RAD‐sequencedExpand

DNA sequence variation and latitudinal associations in hsp23, hsp26 and hsp27 from natural populations of Drosophila melanogaster
Heat shock genes are considered to be likely candidate genes for environmental stress resistance. Nucleotide variation in the coding sequence of the small heat shock genes (hsps) hsp26 and hsp27 fromExpand

Genetic diversity patterns in Phragmites australis at the population, regional and continental scales
Abstract Genetic diversity, population structure and interrelationships were investigated in eight populations of the common reed, Phragmites australis , in the Po Plain, Italy, by means of amplifiedExpand

Multiple mating and facultative polygyny in the Panamanian leafcutter ant Acromyrmex echinatior
Abstract Queen mating frequency of the facultatively polygynous ant Acromyrmex echinatior was investigated by analysing genetic variation at an (AG)n repeat microsatellite locus in workers andExpand

Ascariasis Is a Zoonosis in Denmark
ABSTRACT A preliminary epidemiological survey indicated an association between Ascaris infections in Danish patients and contact with pigs or pig manure. In the present study, we compared AscarisExpand

Assessing patterns of hybridization between North Atlantic eels using diagnostic single-nucleotide polymorphisms
The two North Atlantic eel species, the European eel (Anguilla anguilla) and the American eel (Anguilla rostrata), spawn in partial sympatry in the Sargasso Sea, providing ample opportunity toExpand
