A TEST OF THE GLACIAL REFUGIUM HYPOTHESIS USING PATTERNS OF MITOCHONDRIAL AND NUCLEAR DNA SEQUENCE VARIATION IN ROCK PTARMIGAN (LAGOPUS MUTUS)
The glacial refugium hypothesis (GRH) proposes that glaciers promoted differentiation and generation of intraspecific diversity by isolating populations in ice‐free refugia. We tested threeExpand

Glacial vicariance and historical biogeography of rock ptarmigan (Lagopus mutus) in the Bering region
In this paper, we address alternative hypotheses for the evolution of subspecies of rock ptarmigan (Lagopus mutus) endemic to the Aleutian Archipelago. To do this we examined patterns of geneticExpand

Phylogeographical approaches to assessing demographic connectivity between breeding and overwintering regions in a Nearctic−Neotropical warbler (Wilsonia pusilla)
We characterized the pattern and magnitude of phylogeographical variation among breeding populations of a long‐distance migratory bird, the Wilson's warbler (Wilsonia pusilla), and used thisExpand

Genetic diversity and management of Nearctic rock ptarmigan (Lagopus mutus)
Though the rock ptarmigan, Lagopus mutus (Montin, 1776), is a relatively common breeding bird in arctic regions worldwide, several Nearctic insular populations have become extinct or threatened inExpand

Refugial isolation versus ecological gradients
Hypotheses for divergence and speciation in rainforests generally fall into two categories: those emphasizing the role of geographic isolation and those emphasizing the role of divergent selectionExpand

Context and consequences of comb displays by male rock ptarmigan
. Male rock ptarmigan, Lagopus mutus, display their supraorbital combs for about 50% of the time during both inter- and intra-sexual interactions in the breeding season, but rarely when they areExpand

Dirty ptarmigan: behavioral modification of conspicuous male plumage
Males of many bird species acquire a conspicuous breeding plumage through molt. Male rock ptarmigan (Lagopus mutus), however, become conspicuous in a unique way—as snow melts away from the tundra,Expand

Comparative avian phylogeography of Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea mountains: implications for conservation
We illustrate the use of Faith’s ‘Phylogenetic Diversity’ measure to compare the phylogeographic structure of two bird species with patterns of avian endemism across six mountains in Cameroon andExpand
