Inferring population history with DIY ABC: a user-friendly approach to approximate Bayesian computation
TLDR
Key methods used in DIY ABC, a computer program for inference based on approximate Bayesian computation (ABC), in which scenarios can be customized by the user to fit many complex situations involving any number of populations and samples, are described. Expand
Reconstructing routes of invasion using genetic data: why, how and so what?
TLDR
Some of the fundamental aspects of routes of invasion are summarized, why the reconstruction of these routes is useful for addressing both practical and theoretical questions, and comment on the various reconstruction methods available are commented on. Expand
Bridgehead Effect in the Worldwide Invasion of the Biocontrol Harlequin Ladybird
TLDR
It is shown that the recent burst of worldwide invasions of HA followed a bridgehead scenario, in which an invasive population in eastern North America acted as the source of the colonists that invaded the European, South American and African continents, with some admixture with a biocontrol strain in Europe. Expand
The invasive South American tomato pinworm, Tuta absoluta, continues to spread in Afro-Eurasia and beyond: the new threat to tomato world production
TLDR
The available information on the current distribution of T. absoluta in the world is updated and the threat represented by the rapid spread is described, how this pest is going to change world tomato production is described. Expand
Multiple Transatlantic Introductions of the Western Corn Rootworm
TLDR
It is demonstrated that there have been at least three independent introductions from North America during the past two decades, which raises questions about changing circumstances that have enabled a sudden burst of transatlantic introductions. Expand
Invasion of Europe by the western corn rootworm, Diabrotica virgifera virgifera: multiple transatlantic introductions with various reductions of genetic diversity
TLDR
It was showed that the introduction of WCR into Europe resulted in the redistribution of genetic variance from the intra‐ to the interpopulational level contrary to most examples of multiple introductions, suggesting substantial variation in introduction, foundation and/or establishment conditions. Expand
High‐throughput microsatellite isolation through 454 GS‐FLX Titanium pyrosequencing of enriched DNA libraries
TLDR
It is demonstrated that this procedure can be readily and successfully applied to a large variety of taxonomic groups, at much lower cost than would have been possible with traditional protocols, and is expected to speed up the acquisition of high‐quality genetic markers for nonmodel organisms. Expand
Inferring the origin of populations introduced from a genetically structured native range by approximate Bayesian computation: case study of the invasive ladybird Harmonia axyridis
TLDR
The genetic structure of the invasive ladybird Harmonia axyridis in its native area was characterized using various population genetic statistics and methods and found that native area of H. axyrides most probably consisted of two geographically distinct genetic clusters located in eastern and western Asia. Expand
Western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte) population dynamics
TLDR
The western corn rootworm Diabrotica virgifera vir gifera LeConte is a major insect pest of field maize and is annually one of the largest expenditures for insect management in the United States Corn Belt. Expand
Spatial and temporal genetic variability in French populations of the peach–potato aphid, Myzus persicae
TLDR
Differences in the population structure between reproductive modes suggest that the migration associated with the change of host during sexual reproduction lowers the level of population differentiation. Expand
