Limited inbreeding depression in a bottlenecked population is age but not environment dependent
Inbreeding depression is known to vary greatly between populations and among species. Some of this variation is due to differences in genetic load between populations, while some is due toExpand
Molecular and pedigree measures of relatedness provide similar estimates of inbreeding depression in a bottlenecked population
Individual‐based estimates of the degree of inbreeding or parental relatedness from pedigrees provide a critical starting point for studies of inbreeding depression, but in practice wild pedigreesExpand
INBREEDING INFLUENCES WITHIN‐BROOD HETEROZYGOSITY‐FITNESS CORRELATIONS (HFCS) IN AN ISOLATED PASSERINE POPULATION
Molecular estimates of inbreeding may be made using genetic markers such as microsatellites, however the interpretation of resulting heterozygosity‐fitness correlations (HFCs) with respect toExpand
Isolation and characterisation of microsatellite markers from the South Island robin (Petroica australis)
We identified 20 novel polymorphic microsatellite markers for use in South Island robins (Petroica australis). Markers were isolated from clones enriched for microsatellite repeats, and using 454Expand
HYPERASPIS BRUNNESCENS DOBZHANSKY (COLEOPTERA: COCCINELLIDAE) NEWLY RECORDED IN CANADA FROM SCATARIE ISLAND, NOVA SCOTIA
ABSTRACT Hyperaspis brunnescens Dobzhansky is newly recorded in Canada and eastern North America from a stormpetrel burrow on Scatarie Island, Nova Scotia. This record extends the range of theExpand
BEETLES (COLEOPTERA) OF SCATARIE ISLAND, NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA
Beetles were collected as part of a biodiversity survey of Scatarie Island. Ninety-four species of Coleoptera have now been recorded from Scatarie Island, including 81 native and 13 introducedExpand
INTERTIDAL INVERTEBRATES OF SCATARIE ISLAND: A PRELIMINARY SPECIES INVENTORY AND HABITAT DESCRIPTION
As intertidal habitats of offshore islands remain relatively undocumented compared with their mainland counterparts, we conducted a survey of intertidal habitats on Scatarie Island, Nova Scotia. TwoExpand
