  • 1 December 1999
We evaluate methods for measuring and specifying rates of microevolution in the wild, with particular regard to studies of contemporary, often deemed “rapid,” evolution. A considerable amount ofExpand

Contemporary evolution meets conservation biology
Recent research has revealed that evolution often occurs on contemporary timescales, often within decades. Contemporary evolution is associated with the same factors that are driving the currentExpand

Human predators outpace other agents of trait change in the wild
The observable traits of wild populations are continually shaped and reshaped by the environment and numerous agents of natural selection, including predators. In stark contrast with most predators,Expand

Human influences on rates of phenotypic change in wild animal populations
Human activities can expose populations to dramatic environmental perturbations, which may then precipitate adaptive phenotypic change. We ask whether or not phenotypic changes associated withExpand

The pace of modern life II: from rates of contemporary microevolution to pattern and process.
We compiled a database of microevolution on contemporary time scales in nature (47 source articles; 30 animal species), comprising 2649 evolutionary rates in darwins (proportional change per millionExpand

The relative influence of natural selection and geography on gene flow in guppies
Two general processes may influence gene flow among populations. One involves divergent selection, wherein the maladaptation of immigrants and hybrids impedes gene flow between ecologicalExpand

The ecological importance of intraspecific variation
Human activity is causing wild populations to experience rapid trait change and local extirpation. The resulting effects on intraspecific variation could have substantial consequences for ecologicalExpand

Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning
Species diversity is a major determinant of ecosystem productivity, stability, invasibility, and nutrient dynamics. Hundreds of studies spanning terrestrial, aquatic, and marine ecosystems show thatExpand

MIGRATORY COSTS AND THE EVOLUTION OF EGG SIZE AND NUMBER IN INTRODUCED AND INDIGENOUS SALMON POPULATIONS
Abstract.— The trade‐off between reproductive investment and migration should be an important factor shaping the evolution of life‐history traits among populations following their radiation intoExpand

Parallel evolution of the sexes? Effects of predation and habitat features on the size and shape of wild guppies
Environmental gradients often lead to the parallel evolution of populations and species. To what extent do such gradients also lead to parallel evolution of the sexes? We used guppies (PoeciliaExpand
