Making sense of genomic islands of differentiation in light of speciation
As populations diverge, genetic differences accumulate across the genome. Spurred by rapid developments in sequencing technology, genome-wide population surveys of natural populations promiseExpand

Convergent evolution of the genomes of marine mammals
Marine mammals from different mammalian orders share several phenotypic traits adapted to the aquatic environment and therefore represent a classic example of convergent evolution. To investigateExpand

Widespread evidence for incipient ecological speciation: a meta-analysis of isolation-by-ecology.
Ecologically mediated selection has increasingly become recognised as an important driver of speciation. The correlation between neutral genetic differentiation and environmental or phenotypicExpand

Genomics and the challenging translation into conservation practice.
The global loss of biodiversity continues at an alarming rate. Genomic approaches have been suggested as a promising tool for conservation practice as scaling up to genome-wide data can improveExpand

Bioinformatic processing of RAD-seq data dramatically impacts downstream population genetic inference
1. Restriction site-associated DNA sequencing (RAD-seq) provides high-resolution population genomic data at low cost, and has become an important component in ecological and evolutionary studies. AsExpand
