    Department of Zoology, University of British Columbia, 6270 Vancouver, B C, Canada V6T 1Z4
    Evolution 63:2926-38. 2009
    ..We find that both the skew and discrepancies between the models are greatest at intermediate migration rates and moderate to strong selection, which is exactly the region of parameter space that is most empirically relevant...
  3. pmc Genomic rearrangements and the evolution of clusters of locally adaptive loci
    Sam Yeaman
    Department of Forest and Conservation Sciences and Biodiversity Research Centre, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada V6T 1Z4
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 110:E1743-51. 2013
    ..Because small-scale changes in gene order are relatively common in some taxa, comparative genomic studies could be coupled with studies of adaptation to explore how commonly such rearrangements are involved in local adaptation...

    Sam Yeaman
    Department of Zoology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    J R Soc Interface 9:848-58. 2012
    ..Taken together, these results suggest that changes in communications technology may have influenced cultural evolution more strongly through changes in the amount of information flow, rather than the details of who is connected to whom...

    Evolution 65:1897-911. 2011
    ..The common empirical finding of QTL of large effect is shown to be expected with migration in a heterogeneous landscape, and these QTL may often be composed of several tightly linked alleles of smaller effect...
