MHC studies in nonmodel vertebrates: what have we learned about natural selection in 15 years?
TLDR
Overall, the evidence is compelling that the MHC currently represents the best system available in vertebrates to investigate how natural selection can promote local adaptation at the gene level despite the counteracting actions of migration and genetic drift. Expand
aflpop: a computer program for simulated and real population allocation, based on AFLP data
TLDR
A filtering procedure within aflpop allows the selection of loci according to user-defined criteria and its embodied simulator can provide information on the rates and types of incorrect allocations and on empirical distributions of likelihood statistics. Expand
Comparative phylogeography of Nearctic and Palearctic fishes
TLDR
Combining phylogeographic data from mitochondrial DNA of Nearctic and Palearctic freshwater and anadromous fishes with historical events to assess the influence of historical events on evolutionary patterns and processes in regional fish faunas demonstrates that comparative phylOgeography can be used to evaluate not only phylo geographic patterns but also evolutionary processes.

Identifying Canadian Freshwater Fishes through DNA Barcodes
TLDR
The present study evidenced that freshwater fish species can be efficiently identified through the use of DNA barcoding, especially the species complex of small-sized species, and that the present COI library can be used for subsequent applications in ecology and systematics. Expand
THE EVOLUTIONARY HISTORY OF BROWN TROUT (SALMO TRUTTA L.) INFERRED FROM PHYLOGEOGRAPHIC, NESTED CLADE, AND MISMATCH ANALYSES OF MITOCHONDRIAL DNA VARIATION

TLDR
This study confirmed the existence of five major evolutionary lineages that evolved in geographic isolation during the Pleistocene and have remained largely allopatric since then and provided evidence for the role of biological factors in addition to that of physical isolation in limiting introgressive hybridization among major trout lineages. Expand
DNA sequence variation of the mitochondrial control region among geographically and morphologically remote European brown trout Saltno trutta populations
TLDR
This study exemplified the usefulness of mitochondrial DNA sequence analysis for estimating phylogenetic relationships within S. trutta populations by determining DNA sequence variation in segments of the mitochondrial control region for 151 individuals representing 24 populations. Expand
papa (package for the analysis of parental allocation): a computer program for simulated and real parental allocation
TLDR
Papa is a parental pair allocation and simulator program that allows modelling of many allocation conditions, including transmission error and the estimated proportion of missing parents. Expand
Adaptive evolutionary conservation: towards a unified concept for defining conservation units
TLDR
This work reviews ESU concepts and provides a context‐based framework for delineating ESUs which circumvents much of this situation and accepts that differing criteria will work more dynamically than others and can be used alone or in combination depending on the situation. Expand
Generic scan using AFLP markers as a means to assess the role of directional selection in the divergence of sympatric whitefish ecotypes.
TLDR
Results indicate that only a small proportion of scored AFLP loci might be linked to genes implicated in the adaptive radiation of lake whitefish, and provide further support for the role of selection in driving their divergence. Expand
Genetic calibration of species diversity among North America's freshwater fishes
TLDR
It appears that the current North American freshwater fish taxonomy at the species level significantly conceals diversity in some groups, although artificially creating diversity in others, according to a survey of named species. Expand
