Sexual selection arises when genetically different males show heritable differences in reproductive success. Mouse mating behaviour involves both male competition and female choice. In this paper we show that introduced Y-linked DNA markers spread more extensively through a natural population than do genes inherited matrilineally. Differences in mating success between the sexes and among individual males may alter the pattern and rate of gene flow in natural populations. Another interesting… Expand
Transgressive segregation in a behavioural trait? Explorative strategies in two house mouse subspecies and their hybrids
TLDR
F1 males differed from both parental strains, with longer latencies to enter the arena, but explored the arena in a similar fashion as the M.?m.?domesticus males, thus displaying transgressive behavioural phenotypes, and add a new facet to the study of speciation. Expand
Rapid spread of immigrant genomes into inbred populations
  • I. Saccheri, P. Brakefield
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B: Biological Sciences
  • 2002
TLDR
The replicated experimental design demonstrates that the mechanism underlying immigrant genome spread is heterosis, and that the advantage to the immigrant genes is sustained over several generations, suggesting that effective migration rates may often be much higher than the numbers of individual migrants assumed by classical population genetics models.

Mother species–father species: unidirectional hybridization in animals with female choice
  • P. Wirtz

  • 1999
TLDR
The inequality of the sexes in parental investment leads to the sex that invests more being the more discriminating one and a sexual selection hypothesis for unidirectional hybridization is presented. Expand
Gene Flow and Adaptive Potential in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
This study compared observed and expected changes in adaptive potential (as measured by the selection response of sternopleural bristle number) that occur as a result of gene flow among experimental populations of Drosophila melanogaster and found that limited immigration and hybridization both yielded increases in adaptive Potential.

Heterosis increases the effective migration rate
  • P. Ingvarsson, M. Whitlock
  • Biology, Medicine

  • 2000
TLDR
It is shown that the effect of heterosis on the migration rate can be substantial when fitness reduction within local populations is severe and the effect will be more pronounced in species with relatively short map lengths. Expand
Differing Y chromosome versus mitochondrial DNA ancestry, phylogeography, and introgression in the house mouse
TLDR
The utility of Y chromosome microsatellites for inferring global ancestry and phylogeography in the house mouse is confirmed and appears to be of a single, recent origin within Norway, where Mus musculus Y chromosomes are prevalent in the resident domesticus populations. Expand
The genomic ancestry, landscape genetics and invasion history of introduced mice in New Zealand
TLDR
This is the most thorough genomic study of introduced populations of house mice yet conducted, and will have relevance to studies of the isolation mechanisms separating subspecies of mice. Expand
Dispersal in house mice
This review evaluates direct (live-trapping) and indirect (genetic) methods to study dispersal in wild house mice (Mus musculus) and summarizes field and experimental data to examine the causes andExpand

TLDR
This is the most thorough genomic study of introduced populations of house mice yet conducted, and will have relevance to studies of the isolation mechanisms separating subspecies of mice. Expand
Assessment of mate preference in the house mouse with reference to investigations on assortative mating
This study analysed patterns of mate choice based on different types of laboratory test, and points out the advantages of combined methods to assess mate preference. We compared dyadic encounters andExpand

TLDR
Studies of the genetic and population structure in house mice that are reported here grew out of the need to resolve a paradox. Expand
Behavior and genetic variation in natural populations.
TLDR
An analysis of allelic variation at genetic loci controlling several esterases and hemoglobin indicates that wild populations of the house mouse are characterized by fine-scale genetic subdivision, which, through the territorial behavior of family groups (tribes), is achieved even in the absence of physical or ecological barriers to migration.

Social preferences for partners carrying ‘good genes’ in wild house mice
TLDR
Avoidance of +/t individuals as mates could account for the lower than expected frequency of t-alleles in natural populations and provide an example of mating preference based on genetic quality. Expand
Hybridization and gene flow in house mice introduced into an existing population on an island
TLDR
The spread of the Eday alleles to stability in the May population destroys the myth that population division inevitably restricts gene flow in house mice, and draws attention to the importance of coadaptation in maintaining variation and affecting allele frequencies. Expand
Introduction of a Lethal Allele into a Feral House Mouse Population
TLDR
House mice heterozygous for the recessive lethal allele twl1 were released in 1956 and in 1957 on Great Gull Island, Long Island Sound, New York, and cross-testing indicates that the allele now present is that which was introduced. Expand

TLDR
The frequencies of electrophoretically detected alleles at 22 loci in 1538 house mice from 27 population samples collected from the Faroe, Shetland and Orkney archipelagoes; the mainland of Great Britain plus three small off-shore islands; and a sub-Antarctic island lying between Australia and the Antarctic Continent are described.

TLDR
One type of sexual selection, frequency-dependent mate selection (i.e. rare male advantage), will be considered since it has direct bearing on the present study and it only remains to establish the role of the female in choosing among competing males. Expand

TLDR
Comparisons produced evidence for two Y -chromosomal loci influencing androgen metabolism, one of these affects serum testosterone levels, with variant alleles on the Y - Chromosomes derived from the PHL and PHL-YH strains. Expand
