Full-text available
Sexually-selected traits show large variation and rapid evolution across the animal kingdom, yet genetic variation often persists within populations despite apparent directional selection. A key step in solving this long-standing paradox is to determine the genetic architecture of sexually-selected traits to understand evolutionary drivers and cons...

Environmental DNA (eDNA) metabarcoding is a relatively new monitoring tool featuring in an increasing number of applications such as the facilitation of the accurate and cost effective detection of species in environmental samples. eDNA monitoring is likely to have a major impact on the ability of salmonid aquaculture industry producers and their r...

Sequencing of environmental DNA (eDNA-seq) is an emergent new monitoring tool that promises to facilitate the accurate and cost effective detection of species in environmental samples. eDNA monitoring is likely to have a major impact on the ability of salmonid aquaculture industry producers and their regulators to detect the presence and abundance...
Data
Raw microsatellite data are available in Table 1 in File S1. The MC1R sequence data are summarized in Tables S3 and S4 and are also provided in File S1. All unique MC1R sequences have also been submitted to Genbank (accession numbers pending). Figure S1. Bayesian phylogenetic tree showing the relationship of the wild‐type Antarctic fur seal MC1R s...

Although the genetic basis of color variation has been extensively studied in humans and domestic animals, the genetic polymorphisms responsible for different color morphs remain to be elucidated in many wild vertebrate species. For example, hypopigmentation has been observed in numerous marine mammal species but the underlying mutations have not b...
