    Rowan D H Barrett
    Department of Biology, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
    Evolution 60:484-90. 2006

    Department of Zoology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V6T 1Z4
    Proc Biol Sci 278:233-8. 2011
    ..Our results suggest that cold tolerance is under strong selection and that marine sticklebacks carry sufficient genetic variation to adapt to changes in temperature over remarkably short time scales...
