    Ellen L Kenchington
    Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Bedford Institute of Oceanography, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada
    PLoS ONE 4:e6976. 2009
    ..Research to date has not allowed a clear answer to the question of whether inheritance of the paternal genome is causally related to maleness...

    Ellen Kenchington
    Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia B2Y 4A2, Canada
    Genetics 161:1579-88. 2002
    ..Making use of these findings we develop a model of mother-dependent sex determination and use data from crosses involving wild females to test the model's predictions at the population level...

    Mol Ecol 15:1781-96. 2006
    ..Prominent currents were concordant with the demarcation of the regions, while a novel approach of using particle tracking software to mimic scallop larval dispersal was employed to interpret within-region genetic patterns...
