    Proc Biol Sci 274:527-33. 2007
    ..This study shows the importance of longitudinal genetic surveys for understanding the mechanisms that regulate genetic diversity in wild populations...

    R Kaeuffer
    Departement des Sciences Biologiques, Universite du Quebec a Montreal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
    Heredity (Edinb) 99:374-80. 2007
    ..We showed that a high r(LD) value increases the probability of detecting spurious clustering. We propose to use r(LD) as an index to base a decision on whether or not to use a pair of loci in a clustering analysis...

    Mol Ecol 16:4482-92. 2007
    ..Based on individual-based simulations, we suggest that despite a strongly female-biased sex ratio, the effects of the mating system on the effective population size more closely resemble random mating or weak polygyny...

    Biol Lett 4:504-7. 2008
    ..The genetics of embryo number coupled with cyclic dynamics could play a central role in promoting genetic variation in this population...
