genalex 6: genetic analysis in Excel. Population genetic software for teaching and research
genalex is a user-friendly cross-platform package that runs within Microsoft Excel, enabling population genetic analyses of codominant, haploid and binary data. Allele frequency-based analyses…
Analysis of molecular variance inferred from metric distances among DNA haplotypes: application to human mitochondrial DNA restriction data.
Application of AMOVA to human mitochondrial DNA haplotype data shows that population subdivisions are better resolved when some measure of molecular differences among haplotypes is introduced into the analysis, and Monte Carlo studies show that site sampling does not fundamentally affect the significance of the molecular variance components.
GenAlEx 6.5: genetic analysis in Excel. Population genetic software for teaching and research—an update
Summary: GenAlEx: Genetic Analysis in Excel is a cross-platform package for population genetic analyses that runs within Microsoft Excel. GenAlEx offers analysis of diploid codominant, haploid and…

A conceptual framework depicting the interplay among four basic mechanistic components of organismal movement is introduced, providing a basis for hypothesis generation and a vehicle facilitating the understanding of the causes, mechanisms, and spatiotemporal patterns of movement and their role in various ecological and evolutionary processes.
Spatial autocorrelation analysis of individual multiallele and multilocus genetic structure
A very general multivariate method, based on genetic distance methods, is developed that is applicable to multiallelic codominant, multilocus arrays and illustrated with an example data set from the orchid Caladenia tentaculata.
Multiple regression and correlation extensions of the mantel test of matrix correspondence
It is often necessary in population biology to compare two sets of distance measures. These measures can be based on genetic markers, morphological traits, geographic separation, ecological…
RAPD variation within and among natural populations of outcrossing buffalograss [Buchloë dactyloides (Nutt.) Engelm.]
These patterns of genetic variation were very different from those reported for inbred species and provide important baseline data for cultivar identification and continuing studies of the evolution of polyploid races in this species.
Using allele frequencies and geographic subdivision to reconstruct gene trees within a species: molecular variance parsimony.
It is shown that equally parsimonious trees yield very different estimates of population genetic diversity and genetic structure, as shown by null distributions of the population statistics, obtained by evaluation of 10,000 random MSTs.
Evolutionary implications of allozyme and RAPD variation in diploid populations of dioecious buffalograss Buchloë dactyloides
Large regional differences among the diploid races will facilitate further study of polyploid evolution in buffalograss and multiple correlation Mantel techniques revealed that the correlations were low on an individual by individual basis.

- 1 February 2001
A novel two‐generation (parent‐offspring) approach to the study of genetic structure (TwoGener) that allows us to quantify heterogeneity among the male gamete pools sampled by maternal trees scattered across the landscape and to estimate mean pollination distance and effective neighborhood size is presented.
