  1. ncbi The modulation of DNA content: proximate causes and ultimate consequences
    T R Gregory
    Department of Zoology, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario N1G 2W1
    Genome Res 9:317-24. 1999
    ..These abrupt shifts have broad effects on phenotypic attributes at both cellular and organismal levels and may play an important role in explaining episodes of rapid-or even saltational-character state evolution...
  2. ncbi Evolutionary implications of the relationship between genome size and body size in flatworms and copepods
    T R Gregory
    Department of Zoology, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada N1G 2W1
    Heredity (Edinb) 84:201-8. 2000
    ..Genome sizes appear to vary in a discontinuous fashion among congeneric species in both groups, indicating that such changes have occurred rapidly, and with potentially profound effects on important morphological characters...
  3. ncbi Nucleotypic effects without nuclei: genome size and erythrocyte size in mammals
    T R Gregory
    Department of Zoology, University of Guelph, ON, Canada
    Genome 43:895-901. 2000
    ..In evolutionary terms, they provide insights into the constraints on genome expansion among mammals and are therefore of interest in attempts to solve the long-standing C-value enigma (also known as the C-value paradox)...
  4. ncbi The bigger the C-value, the larger the cell: genome size and red blood cell size in vertebrates
    T R Gregory
    Department of Zoology, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario N1G 2W1, Canada
    Blood Cells Mol Dis 27:830-43. 2001
    ..The present article describes the correlation between genome size and RBC size in vertebrates and discusses some of the cytological, physiological, and evolutionary implications of this relationship...
  5. ncbi Coincidence, coevolution, or causation? DNA content, cell size, and the C-value enigma
    T R Gregory
    Department of Zoology, University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada
    Biol Rev Camb Philos Soc 76:65-101. 2001
    ..Finally, some evolutionary implications of genome size diversity are considered, and a broadening of the traditional 'biological hierarchy' is recommended...

    A M Ardila-Garcia
    Department of Integrative Biology, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON, Canada
    Insect Mol Biol 19:337-46. 2010
    ..The data provided here can be used to guide future research aimed at understanding the evolution of large-scale genomic properties in this order...

    T R Gregory
    Department of Integrative Biology, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada
    Heredity (Edinb) 101:228-38. 2008
    ..These findings may provide some explanation for the streamlined genomes found in these insects, and complement recent work demonstrating possible selective constraints on further deletion of noncoding DNA...
