Applications of Bayesian skyline plots and approximate Bayesian computation for population demography: A case study of Northern Fur Seals (Callorhinus ursinus)
The demographic history of a population can be reconstructed from its genetic composition, as populations carry signatures of their evolutionary pasts in their genomes. However, the application of population genetics to ...
Genetic history of Chinook and sockeye salmon analyzed using ancient and contemporary mitochondrial DNA
Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) serve an important social and economic role in western North America. Despite historical abundance, native salmonids are now at risk of extinction throughout much of their native range. ...
THE EFFECT OF ABIOTIC AND GENETIC CONSTRAINTS ON DEMOGRAPHIC PERSISTENCE LIMITING SPECIES RANGES IN ENDEMIC SPECIES
A species' range is the result of ecological and evolutionary constraints on population persistence. The direct effects of abiotic and biotic factors on individual survival, ecological constraints, are proximate causes of ...
