    Benoit Nabholz
    Institut des Sciences de l Evolution, UMR 5554 CNRS, Universite Montpellier II, France
    Genome Biol Evol 5:1273-90. 2013
    ..Altogether, our work represents a further step toward a more comprehensive phylogenetic reconstruction of the evolution of life-history and of the population-genetics environment. ..
  2. ncbi request reprint Strong variations of mitochondrial mutation rate across mammals--the longevity hypothesis
    Benoit Nabholz
    Institut des Sciences de l Evolution CC64, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique Université Montpellier 2, Montpellier, France
    Mol Biol Evol 25:120-30. 2008
    ..We propose that natural selection tends to decrease the mitochondrial mutation rate in long-lived species, in agreement with the mitochondrial theory of aging...
  3. pmc Determination of mitochondrial genetic diversity in mammals
    Benoit Nabholz
    CNRS UMR 5554 Institut des Sciences de l Evolution, Montpellier, France
    Genetics 178:351-61. 2008
    ..They suggest that, even in the absence of selection, mtDNA genetic diversity is essentially unpredictable, knowing species biology, and probably uncorrelated to species abundance...

    Nicolas Galtier
    Institut des Sciences de l Evolution, Université Montpellier 2 CNRS UMR 5554, Place E Bataillon, 34095 Montpellier, France
    Mitochondrion 9:51-7. 2009
    ..This is because his interpretation invokes adaptation as the single evolutionary force at work, disregarding the effects of mutation, genetic drift, and purifying selection...
  5. pmc The erratic mitochondrial clock: variations of mutation rate, not population size, affect mtDNA diversity across birds and mammals
    Benoit Nabholz
    Université Montpellier 2 CNRS UMR 5554 Institut des Sciences de l Evolution Place E Bataillon CC064, Montpellier, France
    BMC Evol Biol 9:54. 2009
    ..These properties make birds the ideal model to directly test for population size effects, and to discriminate between competing hypotheses about the causes of substitution rate variation...

    Richard W Jobson
    Institut des Sciences de l Evolution, CNRS UMR 5554, Universite Montpellier 2, Montpellier, France
    Mol Biol Evol 27:840-7. 2010
    ..In this study, we uncovered the way natural selection has completed this task during mammalian evolution. Cellular membrane and extracellular collagen composition, not genome integrity, have apparently been the optimized features...
