Evolution of genes and genomes on the Drosophila phylogeny
Comparative analysis of multiple genomes in a phylogenetic framework dramatically improves the precision and sensitivity of evolutionary inference, producing more robust results than single-genomeExpand

Hybridization and speciation
Hybridization has many and varied impacts on the process of speciation. Hybridization may slow or reverse differentiation by allowing gene flow and recombination. It may accelerate speciation viaExpand

Genomics and the origin of species
Speciation is a fundamental evolutionary process, the knowledge of which is crucial for understanding the origins of biodiversity. Genomic approaches are an increasingly important aspect of thisExpand

Sexual selection and speciation.
The power of sexual selection to drive changes in mate recognition traits gives it the potential to be a potent force in speciation. Much of the evidence to support this possibility comes fromExpand

Taxon‐specific PCR for DNA barcoding arthropod prey in bat faeces
The application of DNA barcoding to dietary studies allows prey taxa to be identified in the absence of morphological evidence and permits a greater resolution of prey identity than is possibleExpand

Differential gene exchange between parapatric morphs of Littorina saxatilis detected using AFLP markers
Speciation requires the acquisition of reproductive isolation, and the circumstances under which this could evolve are of great interest. Are new species formed after the acquisition of generalizedExpand

Interpreting the genomic landscape of speciation: a road map for finding barriers to gene flow
Speciation, the evolution of reproductive isolation among populations, is continuous, complex, and involves multiple, interacting barriers. Until it is complete, the effects of this process varyExpand

Speciation can be viewed as the evolution of restrictions on the freedom of genetic recombination: new combinations of alleles can be generated within species, but alleles from different speciesExpand

An objective, rapid and reproducible method for scoring AFLP peak‐height data that minimizes genotyping error
Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) fingerprint data are now commonly collected using DNA sequencers. AFLP genotypes are still often scored by eye from such data — a time‐consuming,Expand

Multiplex SNP‐SCALE: a cost‐effective medium‐throughput single nucleotide polymorphism genotyping method
We describe a convenient, cost‐effective and flexible medium‐throughput single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping method, Multiplex SNP‐SCALE, which enables the simultaneous amplification byExpand
