    Biodiversity Research Centre and Department of Zoology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia V6T 1Z4, Canada
    Am Nat 180:50-9. 2012
    ..Our data indicate that plasticity can evolve rapidly after colonization of a new environment in response to changing niche use...

    Richard Svanback
    Section of Evolution and Ecology, University of California, Davis, CA 95616, USA
    Physiol Biochem Zool 75:532-43. 2002
    ..These findings are consistent with other recent data and suggest that suction distance is a poor metric of suction feeding performance...

    Richard Svanback
    Department of Ecology and Genetics Limnology, University of Uppsala, Uppsala, Sweden
    Evolution 65:3515-26. 2011
    ..This may be a response to UV-stress. Overall, our results suggest that predation can be a strong selective agent on pigmentation differences among conspecifics occupying different habitats...
