- Marker-assisted estimation of quantitative genetic parameters in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykissA J Wilson
Department of Zoology, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON, NIG 2W1, Canada
Genet Res 81:145-56. 2003..This was due to the complex structure of the true pedigree in which high numbers of half-sibling relationships resulted in inaccurate partitioning of full-sibships, and additional unrecognized relatedness between families...
- Selective and genetic constraints on the evolution of body size in a stream-dwelling salmonid fishA J Wilson
Department of Zoology, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON, N1G 2W1, Canada
J Evol Biol 16:584-94. 2003..The results suggest an adaptive plastic response in age of maturation to juvenile growth rates that have a largely environmental basis of determination...
- A framework for power and sensitivity analyses for quantitative genetic studies of natural populations, and case studies in Soay sheep (Ovis aries)M B Morrissey
Department of Integrative Biology, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON, Canada
J Evol Biol 20:2309-21. 2007..09. Given this range of results, we suggest that such power and sensitivity analyses could greatly complement empirical studies, and we provide the computer program PEDANTICS to aid in their application...

- Mk3.5: a modular, multi-frequency successor to the Mk3a EIS/EIT systemA J Wilson
Department of Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, UK
Physiol Meas 22:49-54. 2001..These results suggest that the current system is 10 dB better in absolute terms than the previous Sheffield (Mk3a) system...
- A localized negative genetic correlation constrains microevolution of coat color in wild sheepJ Gratten
Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield S10 2TN, UK
Science 319:318-20. 2008..This result demonstrates the importance of understanding the genetic basis of fitness variation when making predictions about the microevolutionary consequences of selection...
- Quantification of lung injury using ventilation and perfusion distributions obtained from gamma scintigraphyB S Brook
School of Mathematical Sciences, University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham NG7 2RD, UK
Physiol Meas 28:1451-64. 2007..05) but not in the median values (p > 0.05). There was no correlation between the mean, median and standard deviation of the distributions from the subjects with a PE and the percentage of damage present (p > 0.05)...
- Environmental coupling of selection and heritability limits evolutionA J Wilson
Institute of Evolutionary Biology, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
PLoS Biol 4:e216. 2006..Assumptions of environmental constancy are likely to be violated in natural systems, and failure to acknowledge this may generate highly misleading expectations for phenotypic microevolution...
- Maternal genetic effects set the potential for evolution in a free-living vertebrate populationA J Wilson
Institute of Cell, Animal and Population Biology, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK

- Why h2 does not always equal V A/V P?A J Wilson
Institute of Evolutionary Biology, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK
J Evol Biol 21:647-50. 2008..Failure to realize the model dependency of published h(2) estimates will give a very misleading, and in most cases upwardly biased, impression of the potential for trait evolution...
