Many molecular ecological and evolutionary studies sample wild populations at a single point in time, but that data represents genetic variation from a potentially unrepresentative snapshot in time. Variation across time in genetic parameters may occur quickly in species that produce multiple generations of offspring per year. Here, we compare genetic diversity in wild caught populations of Drosophila persimilis and Drosophila pseudoobscura collected 16 years apart at the same time of year and… CONTINUE READING
