  1. ncbi request reprint Changes in C uptake in populations of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii selected at high CO2
    Sinead Collins
    Biology Department, McGill University, 1205 Avenue Dr Penfield, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
    Plant Cell Environ 29:1812-9. 2006
    ..This shows how predictions about the properties of communities in the future can be influenced by the effect of natural selection...
  2. ncbi request reprint Rewinding the tape: selection of algae adapted to high CO2 at current and pleistocene levels of CO2
    Sinead Collins
    McGill University, Department of Biology, 1205 Ave Dr Penfield, Montreal H3A 1BI, Canada
    Evolution 60:1392-401. 2006
    ..Adaptation to ambient and glacial-era levels of CO2 produced a range of phenotypes, suggesting that chance rather than selective history contributes to the divergence of replicate populations in this system...
  3. pmc Adaptive walks toward a moving optimum
    Sinead Collins
    Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research, Cologne 50829, Germany
    Genetics 176:1089-99. 2007
    ..This suggests that care should be taken when experiments using sudden environmental changes are used to make predictions about adaptive responses to gradual change...
  4. ncbi request reprint Phenotypic consequences of 1,000 generations of selection at elevated CO2 in a green alga
    Sinead Collins
    Biology Department, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec H3A 1B1, Canada
    Nature 431:566-9. 2004
    ..These lines also grew poorly at ambient concentrations of CO2. We tentatively attribute this outcome to the accumulation of conditionally neutral mutations in genes affecting the carbon concentration mechanism...
  5. ncbi request reprint Oxygen content of transmembrane proteins over macroevolutionary time scales
    Claudia Acquisti
    Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research, Carl von Linne Weg 10, 50829 Köln, Germany
    Nature 445:47-52. 2007
    ..We suggest the hypothesis that atmospheric oxygen concentrations affected the timing of the evolution of cellular compartmentalization by constraining the size of domains necessary for communication across membranes...
  6. pmc Assessing the influence of adjacent gene orientation on the evolution of gene upstream regions in Arabidopsis thaliana
    Fei He
    Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research, 50829 Cologne, Germany
    Genetics 185:695-701. 2010
    ..Altogether, however, we observe considerable variation in evolutionary rates, with putative signatures of selection on two uni-directional upstream regions...
