Gene flow is a fundamental evolutionary force in adaptation that is especially important to understand as humans are rapidly changing both the natural environment and natural levels of gene flow. Theory proposes a multifaceted role for gene flow in adaptation, but it focuses mainly on the disruptive effect that gene flow has on adaptation when selection is not strong enough to prevent the loss of locally adapted alleles. The role of gene flow in adaptation is now better understood due to the… Expand
Genetic architecture influences when and how hybridization contributes to colonization
TLDR
It is found that two distinct categories of genetic architecture facilitate rapid colonization but that they do so in qualitatively different ways, and these findings have implications for understanding the origins of biological invasions and the success of hybrid lineages. Expand
Hybridization underlies localized trait evolution in cavefish
TLDR
It is demonstrated that hybridization between cave and surface populations contributes to highly localized variation in behavioral and morphological traits, which provides insight into the evolutionary mechanisms that promote adaptive genetic variation and the genetic basis of complex behavioral phenotypes involved in local adaptation.

Genetic architecture influences when and how hybridization contributes to colonization.
TLDR
It is found that two distinct categories of genetic architecture facilitate rapid colonization but that they do so in qualitatively different ways and have implications for understanding the origins of biological invasions and the success of hybrid populations. Expand
Gene flow influences the genomic architecture of local adaptation in six riverine fish species
TLDR
It is found that gene flow varied among species, and adaptive loci were clustered more tightly in species with higher gene flow, supporting the hypothesis that increasingly clustered architectures of local adaptation are associated with high gene flow. Expand
Shared ancestral polymorphisms and chromosomal rearrangements as potential drivers of local adaptation in a marine fish
TLDR
This study examined how demographic history, shared ancestral polymorphism, and gene flow among glacial lineages contribute to local adaptation to sea conditions in a marine fish, the capelin (Mallotus villosus), and suggests that both shared polymorphisms among lineages, resulting from standing genetic variation or introgression, and chromosomal rearrangements may contribute toLocal adaptation in the presence of high gene flow.

Population-genomic inference of the strength and timing of selection against gene flow
TLDR
This study provides a theoretical framework for linking genome-wide patterns of divergence and recombination with the underlying evolutionary mechanisms that drive this differentiation. Expand
Population-genomic inference of the strength and timing of selection against gene flow
TLDR
A theoretical framework is provided for linking genome-wide patterns of divergence and recombination with the underlying evolutionary mechanisms that drive this differentiation and a procedure for parameter estimation is developed that accounts for the confounding effect of background selection.

The evolutionary history of Nebraska deer mice: local adaptation in the face of strong gene flow
TLDR
Examination of the demographic and selective history of deer mice in and around the Nebraska Sand Hills, a system in which variation at the Agouti locus affects cryptic coloration that in turn affects the survival of mice in their local habitat, provides a complete example of the dynamics between ancestral gene flow and local adaptation in a classic mammalian system.

Standing genetic variation and chromosomal rearrangements facilitate local adaptation in a marine fish
TLDR
This study examined how, demographic history, standing genetic variation linked to chromosomal rearrangements and shared polymorphism among glacial lineages contribute to local adaptation to environmental conditions in the marine fish, the capelin. Expand

The genomics of speciation-with-gene-flow.
TLDR
A theory predicting four phases of speciation, defined by changes in the relative effectiveness of divergence and genome hitchhiking, is described and future directions are outlined, emphasizing the need to couple next-generation sequencing with selection, transplant, functional genomics, and mapping studies.

Is gene flow the most important evolutionary force in plants?
TLDR
Most plant evolutionists now recognize the importance of gene flow, and it is receiving increased recognition from other areas of plant biology as well, and new data-rich genomic techniques allow closer scrutiny of the role of Gene flow in plant evolution. Expand
A genomic selection component analysis characterizes migration‐selection balance
TLDR
This work renovates the classic selection component method to accommodate genomic data and observe selection at SNPs throughout the genome and finds that nonsignificant SNPs exhibit a subtle, but still significant, change in allele frequency toward neighboring populations, a predicted effect of gene flow. Expand
Gene flow and the geographic structure of natural populations.
TLDR
Of particular interest are those species for which direct methods indicate little current gene flow but indirect methods indicate much higher levels of gene flow in the recent past, and whose species probably have undergone large-scale demographic changes relatively frequently. Expand
Ecological genomics of local adaptation
TLDR
Genomic tools are now allowing genome-wide studies, and recent theoretical advances can help to design research strategies that combine genomics and field experiments to examine the genetics of local adaptation. Expand
THE GENETIC ARCHITECTURE OF ADAPTATION UNDER MIGRATION–SELECTION BALANCE
TLDR
Analytical approximations and individual‐based simulations are used to explore how genetic architecture evolves when two populations connected by migration experience stabilizing selection toward different optima and find that adaptation with migration tends to result in concentrated genetic architectures with fewer, larger, and more tightly linked divergent alleles. Expand
The Effect of Linkage on Establishment and Survival of Locally Beneficial Mutations
TLDR
An effective migration rate experienced by the weakly beneficial mutation is derived, which accounts for the reduction in gene flow imposed by linked selection, and the emerging view that physically linked selection is biologically relevant if linkage is tight or if selection at the background locus is strong is strengthened.

Adaptation genomics: the next generation.
TLDR
How next generation sequencing (NGS) has transformed their ability to identify the genes underpinning adaptation is summarized to demonstrate how the application of these genomic tools to ecological model species means that the authors can start addressing some of the questions that have puzzled ecological geneticists for decades.

TLDR
Both speciation and population-genetic models that make explicit predictions about how the rate of recombination influences patterns of genetic variation within and between species are reviewed and empirical data of DNA sequence variation in rabbits and mice is compared. Expand

TLDR
Predictions of population and quantitative genetic models are reviewed and individual-based simulations are used to illustrate how the architecture of local adaptation depends on the genetic redundancy of the trait, the maintenance of standing genetic variation (VG), and the susceptibility of alleles to swamping.
