Inferring population history with DIY ABC: a user-friendly approach to approximate Bayesian computation
Summary: Genetic data obtained on population samples convey information about their evolutionary history. Inference methods can extract part of this information but they require sophisticatedExpand

Reconstructing routes of invasion using genetic data: why, how and so what?
Detailed knowledge about the geographical pathways followed by propagules from their source to the invading populations—referred to here as routes of invasion—provides information about the historyExpand

Multiple Transatlantic Introductions of the Western Corn Rootworm
The invasion of Europe by the western corn rootworm, North America's most destructive corn pest, is ongoing and represents a serious threat to European agriculture. Because this pest was initiallyExpand

High‐throughput microsatellite isolation through 454 GS‐FLX Titanium pyrosequencing of enriched DNA libraries
Microsatellites (or SSRs: simple sequence repeats) are among the most frequently used DNA markers in many areas of research. The use of microsatellite markers is limited by the difficulties involvedExpand

Estimation of demo‐genetic model probabilities with Approximate Bayesian Computation using linear discriminant analysis on summary statistics
Comparison of demo‐genetic models using Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) is an active research field. Although large numbers of populations and models (i.e. scenarios) can be analysed with ABCExpand

Phylogenetic relationships of the north-eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean blenniids
The phylogenetic relationships of 27 north-eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean blennioids are analysed based on a total of 1001 bp from a combined fragment of the 12S and 16S mitochondrial rDNA. TheExpand

Sexing Bonelli's Eagle nestlings: Morphometrics versus molecular techniques
--We report details of two PCR-based molecular sexing techniques for the Bonelli's Eagle (Hieraaetus fasciatus) and evaluate the reliability of morphometric measurements to predict the sex ofExpand

Secondary Contact and Admixture between Independently Invading Populations of the Western Corn Rootworm, Diabrotica virgifera virgifera in Europe
The western corn rootworm, Diabrotica virgifera virgifera (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae), is one of the most destructive pests of corn in North America and is currently invading Europe. The two majorExpand

FITNESS COSTS OF INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE IN NATURAL BREEDING SITES OF THE MOSQUITO CULEX PIPIENS
Abstract Genetic changes conferring adaptation to a new environment may induce a fitness cost in the previous environment. Although this prediction has been verified in laboratory conditions, fewExpand
