Statistical confidence for likelihood‐based paternity inference in natural populations
Paternity inference using highly polymorphic codominant markers is becoming common in the study of natural populations. However, multiple males are often found to be genetically compatible with eachExpand

A quantitative review of heterozygosity–fitness correlations in animal populations
The ease of obtaining genotypic data from wild populations has renewed interest in the relationship between individual genetic diversity and fitness‐related traits (heterozygosity–fitnessExpand

Understanding the relationship between the inbreeding coefficient and multilocus heterozygosity: theoretical expectations and empirical data
Geneticists have been interested in inbreeding and inbreeding depression since the time of Darwin. Two alternative approaches that can be used to measure how inbred an individual is involve the useExpand

A retrospective assessment of the accuracy of the paternity inference program cervus
cervus is a Windows‐based software package written to infer paternity in natural populations. It offers advantages over exclusionary‐based methods of paternity inference in that multiple nonexcludedExpand

The genome of a songbird
The zebra finch is an important model organism in several fields with unique relevance to human neuroscience. Like other songbirds, the zebra finch communicates through learned vocalizations, anExpand

Nonamplifying alleles at microsatellite loci: a caution for parentage and population studies
While genotyping wild red deer (Cervus elaphus) at microsatellite loci for paternity assignment, we found three loci (MAP65, BOVIRBP and CelJP23) with segregating nonamplifying alleles. NonamplifyingExpand

Adaptation genomics: the next generation.
Understanding the genetics of how organisms adapt to changing environments is a fundamental topic in modern evolutionary ecology. The field is currently progressing rapidly because of advances inExpand

Heritability of fitness in a wild mammal population.
Classical population genetics theory predicts that selection should deplete heritable genetic variance for fitness. We show here that, consistent with this prediction, there was a negativeExpand

A novel form of resistance in rice to the angiosperm parasite Striga hermonthica.
The root hemiparasitic weed Striga hermonthica is a serious constraint to grain production of economically important cereals in sub-Saharan Africa. Breeding for parasite resistance in cereals isExpand
