Fluctuating Asymmetry and Measurement Error
velopmental processes that result from the inability of the genotype to effectively buffer itself against environmental pertur? bations (Van Valen, 1962). Levels of FA have been assessed in anExpand

HISTORICAL DEMOGRAPHY AND PRESENT DAY POPULATION STRUCTURE OF THE GREENFINCH, CARDUEUS CHLORIS—AN ANALYSIS OF mtDNA CONTROL‐REGION SEQUENCES
Genetic variability within and among 10 geographically distinct populations of Greenfinches (Carduelis chloris) was assayed by directly sequencing a 637 BP part of the mtDNA control region from 194Expand

High genetic variation in leopards indicates large and long‐term stable effective population size
In this paper we employ recently developed statistical and molecular tools to analyse the population history of the Tanzanian leopard (Panthera pardus), a large solitary felid. Because of theirExpand

Disruption or aposematism? Significance of dorsal zigzag pattern of European vipers
European vipers (genus Vipera) are venomous and often have a distinctive dorsal zigzag pattern. The zigzag pattern of vipers has been suggested to be an example of disruptive colouration whichExpand

Genetic structure of lions (Panthera leo L.) in the Selous Game Reserve: implications for the evolution of sociality
Abstract We use 14 microsatellites to examine the genetic structure of a lion (Panthera leo L.) population in southern Tanzania. Heterozygosity levels were high (0.75 ± 0.08). Relatedness estimatesExpand

The Utility of the Neglected Mitochondrial Control Region for Evolutionary Studies in Lepidoptera (Insecta)
The insect mitochondrial control region (=AT-rich-region) is a rarely used genetic marker in phylogeographic studies and population genetic surveys. Reasons for this are that the high AT content andExpand

Genetic differentiation in the urban habitat: the great tits (Parus major) of the parks of Barcelona city
The increase of urban areas has led to a fragmentation of habitats for many forest-living species. Man-made parks might be a solution, but they can also act as sinks that are unable to maintainExpand

Climate change: what will it do to fish–parasite interactions?
Climate change-related factors are predicted to affect aquatic environments in many ways. Fish physiology, immunology, behaviour, and parasite-avoidance strategies are likely to be affected byExpand

Reliability of noninvasive genetic census of otters compared to field censuses
Conservation and management actions are often highly dependent on accurate estimations of population sizes. However, these estimates are difficult to obtain for elusive and rare species. We comparedExpand

Why some measures of fluctuating asymmetry are so sensitive to measurement error
Fluctuating asymmetry has recently become a subject of much theoretical and empirical interest as well as causing considerable discussion (Houle 1997, Leamy 1997, Markow & Clarke 1997, Moller &Expand
