Parallel evolution is considered strong evidence for natural selection. However, few studies have investigated the process of parallel selection as it plays out in real time. The common approach is to study historical signatures of selection in populations already well adapted to different environments. Here, to document selection under natural con...

Parallel evolution is considered strong evidence for natural selection. However, few studies have investigated the process of parallel selection as it plays out in real time. The common approach is to study historical signatures of selection in populations already well adapted to different environments. Here, to document selection in action under n...

13 Captive-bred ball pythons (Python regius) represent a powerful model system for studying the 14 genetic basis of colour variation and Mendelian phenotypes in vertebrates. Although hundreds 15 of Mendelian phenotypes (colour morphs) affecting colouration and patterning have been 16 described for ball pythons, the genes causing these colour morphs...
Article
Identifying genetic variation involved in thermal adaptation is likely to yield insights into how species adapt to different climates. Physiological and behavioural responses associated with overwintering (e.g. torpor) are thought to serve important functions in climate adaptation. In this study, we use two isolated Peromyscus leucopus lineages on...
Article
Range expansion has genetic consequences expected to result in differentiated wave-front populations with low genetic variation and potentially introgression from a local species. The northern expansion of Peromyscus leucopus in southern Quebec provides an opportunity to test these predictions using population genomic tools. Our results show eviden...
