Aspen is a widespread forest tree of high economic and ecological importance in western Canada. The species has also been subject to tree improvement efforts over the past two decades to increase productivity of the forested land base. Successful selection and breeding programs rely on both...
Evolutionary quantitative genetics and genomics applied to the study of sexually dimorphic traits in wild bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis)Download
The independent evolution of the sexes may often be constrained if male and female homologous traits share a similar genetic architecture. Thus, cross-sex genetic covariance is assumed to play a key role in the evolution of sexual dimorphism (SD) with consequent impacts on sexual selection,...
Polar bears (Ursus maritimus) were among the first large mammals to be assessed for genetic variation in the wild, and they remain a common subject of genetics studies. Although recent advances in genotyping technology have allowed for more accurate determination of population structure and the...
