  • 1 August 1986
TLDR
The most-likely male parents were identified by using genetic markers and evaluating the statistical likelihoods of paternity for seed collected from known female parents within a natural population of the forest herb Chamaelirium luteum, finding that males had a higher variance in the number of mates, showing a potential for sex-specific selection. Expand
Parentage analysis with genetic markers in natural populations. I. The expected proportion of offspring with unambiguous paternity.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that genetic paternity analysis in natural populations cannot be reliably based on exclusionary principles alone, and more elaborate likelihood principles must be deployed in order to measure the reproductive contributions of individuals innatural populations. Expand
THE IMPORTANCE OF MOSQUITO BEHAVIOURAL ADAPTATIONS TO MALARIA CONTROL IN AFRICA
TLDR
Determining the public health impact of physiological and behavioral insecticide resistance is an urgent priority if the authors are to maintain the significant gains made in reducing malaria morbidity and mortality. Expand
Mate availability in small populations of plant species with homomorphic sporophytic self-incompatibility
TLDR
A computer simulation model was developed to test the effect of small population size upon the diversity and the relative frequency of the S-alleles which determine the number of available mates in a self-incompatible species. Expand
Analysis of Parentage for Naturally Established Seedlings of Chamaelirium Luteum (Liliaceae)
TLDR
Overall, seedlings tended to undergo establishment at locations between their maternal and paternal parents, indicating localized genetic adaptation along environmental gradients and a negative correlation was observed between inflorescence size and number of progeny observed. Expand
Genetic analysis of male reproductive contributions in Chamaelirium luteum (L.) gray (Liliaceae).
TLDR
Results from this analysis clearly demonstrate that different males make unequal contributions to the overall progeny pool, with many males contributing essentially nothing to the next generation. Expand
The Quantitative Genetics of Sexual Dimorphism
TLDR
Understanding of the quantitative genetic basis for sexually dimorphic characters can also provide insight into the differential selection acting on males and females that gives rise to sexually dimmorphic characters by projecting backwards in time using standard iterative equations for phenotypic change. Expand
The relationship between single parent and parent pair genetic likelihoods in genealogy reconstruction
TLDR
Techniques of genealogy reconstruction based on genetic likelihoods of parent-offspring relationships are explored and a strong positive correlation between single parent and parent pair likelihoods within triplets is shown. Expand
Interspecific hybridization between Agrostis stolonifera and related Agrostis species under field conditions
TLDR
In a field study, the frequency of interspecific hybridization between transgenic creeping bentgrass and four related species, A. canina L., A. capillaris and A. castellana Boiss, is measured and concerns about pollen-mediated gene flow to related Agrostis spp are raised. Expand
A rapid means of sex identification inSilene latifolia by use of flow cytometry
TLDR
A method using flow cytometry for diagnosing the sex of the dioecious species Silene latifolia Poiret (Caryophyllaceae) by means of sexual differences in nuclear DNA content and base-pair composition is presented. Expand
