A practical guide to methods of parentage analysis
The use of molecular techniques for parentage analysis has been a booming science for over a decade. The most important technological breakthrough was the introduction of microsatellite markers toExpand

Post-copulatory sexual selection and sexual conflict in the evolution of male pregnancy
Male pregnancy in seahorses, pipefishes and sea dragons (family Syngnathidae) represents a striking reproductive adaptation that has shaped the evolution of behaviour and morphology in this group ofExpand

The Contributions of Premating and Postmating Selection Episodes to Total Selection in Sex-Role-Reversed Gulf Pipefish
Empirical studies of sexual selection often focus on events occurring either before or after mating but rarely both and consequently may fail to discern the relative magnitudes and interactions ofExpand

Multiple mating and reproductive skew in parental and introgressed females of the live-bearing fish Xiphophorus birchmanni.
Just as mating patterns can promote speciation or hybridization, the presence of hybridization can shape mating patterns within a population. In this study, we characterized patterns of multipleExpand

Inbreeding Depression Varies with Investment in Sex in a Facultative Parthenogen
The reproductive mode of facultative parthenogens allows recessive mutations that accumulate during the asexual phase to be unmasked following sexual reproduction. Longer periods of asexualExpand

A low rate of multiple maternity for pregnant male northern pipefish Syngnathus fuscus.
Microsatellite parentage analysis was applied to 22 broods of the northern pipefish Syngnathus fuscus for the first time. The majority of males mated singly, 23% of males mated with two females, andExpand

The effects of synthetic estrogen exposure on premating and postmating episodes of selection in sex-role-reversed Gulf pipefish
Environmental estrogens have been shown to affect populations of aquatic organisms in devastating ways, including feminization of males, alterations in mating behaviors, and disruption of sexualExpand

The Effects of Food Limitation on Life History Tradeoffs in Pregnant Male Gulf Pipefish
Syngnathid fishes (pipefishes, seahorses and seadragons) are characterized by a unique mode of paternal care in which embryos develop on or in the male’s body, often within a structure known as aExpand
