Behavioural syndromes differ predictably between 12 populations of three-spined stickleback.
Animals often differ in suites of correlated behaviours, comparable with how humans differ in personality. Constraints on the architecture of behaviour have been invoked to explain why suchExpand

Wildlife DNA forensics—bridging the gap between conservation genetics and law enforcement
Wildlife DNA forensics is an applied field that has emerged from a synthesis of conser- vation genetic research and forensic genetic practice to meet the increasing need for investigative tools inExpand

Substantial genetic structure among stocked and native populations of the European grayling (Thymallus thymallus, Salmonidae) in the United Kingdom
While currently in a state of recovery in the United Kingdom (UK), the grayling (Thymallus thymallus) remains of conservation interest due to its historical decline, socio-economic value and theExpand

Validation of the barcoding gene COI for use in forensic genetic species identification.
The application of forensics to wildlife crime investigation routinely involves genetic species identification based on DNA sequence similarity. This work can be hindered by a lack of authenticatedExpand

A forensic STR profiling system for the Eurasian badger: a framework for developing profiling systems for wildlife species.
Developing short tandem repeat (STR) profiling systems for forensic identification is complicated in animal species. Obtaining a representative number of individuals from populations, limited accessExpand

Genetic data from 28 STR loci for forensic individual identification and parentage analyses in 6 bird of prey species.
Twenty-eight STR loci were screened in wild populations of six bird of prey species providing allele frequencies and population genetic parameters necessary for the application of STRs in wildlifeExpand

Developmental Validation of the ParaDNA® Screening System - A presumptive test for the detection of DNA on forensic evidence items.
Current assessment of whether a forensic evidence item should be submitted for STR profiling is largely based on the personal experience of the Crime Scene Investigator (CSI) and the submissionsExpand

Predator inspection behaviour in three-spined sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus): body size, local predation pressure and cooperation
The apparently maladaptive tendency of fish to approach and inspect potential predators has been explained in terms of useful information gathering or as a signal to the predator that it has beenExpand
