Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds
To better determine the history of modern birds, we performed a genome-scale phylogenetic analysis of 48 species representing all orders of Neoaves using phylogenomic methods created to handleExpand

A spatial analysis method (SAM) to detect candidate loci for selection: towards a landscape genomics approach to adaptation
The detection of adaptive loci in the genome is essential as it gives the possibility of understanding what proportion of a genome or which genes are being shaped by natural selection. SeveralExpand

Comparative genomics reveals insights into avian genome evolution and adaptation
Birds are the most species-rich class of tetrapod vertebrates and have wide relevance across many research fields. We explored bird macroevolution using full genomes from 48 avian speciesExpand

Genetic diversity and introgression in the Scottish wildcat
This paper describes a genetic analysis of wild‐living cats in Scotland. Samples from 230 wild‐living Scottish cats (including 13 museum skins) and 74 house cats from England and Scotland wereExpand

A role for ecotones in generating rainforest biodiversity
Gene flow and morphological divergence were measured among 12 populations of a common species of rainforest passerine. Populations in the forest and the ecotone (the transition zone between theExpand

Behavior predicts genes structure in a wild primate group.
The predictability of genetic structure from social structure and differential mating success was tested in wild baboons. Baboon populations are subdivided into cohesive social groups that includeExpand
