  1. ncbi Size correction in biology: how reliable are approaches based on (common) principal component analysis?
    Daniel Berner
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland
    Oecologia 166:961-71. 2011
    ..As I demonstrate, (C)PC1 extracted from a subset of traits, not themselves subjected to size correction, can provide such a size metric...
  2. ncbi Genetic architecture of skeletal evolution in European lake and stream stickleback
    Daniel Berner
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Vesalgasse, 1, CH 4051 Basel, Switzerland
    Evolution 68:1792-805. 2014
    ..Our study paves the way for comparative analyses across other (lake-stream) stickleback populations, and for functional investigations of the candidate genes. ..
  3. pmc How much can the orientation of G's eigenvectors tell us about genetic constraints?
    Daniel Berner
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel Vesalgasse 1, Ch 4051, Basel, Switzerland
    Ecol Evol 2:1834-42. 2012
    ..Genetic constraints are more profitably explored through experimental approaches avoiding the mathematical abstraction inherent in eigenanalysis...
  4. ncbi Variable progress toward ecological speciation in parapatry: stickleback across eight lake-stream transitions
    Daniel Berner
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel, CH 4051 Basel, Switzerland
    Evolution 63:1740-53. 2009
    ..Our study thus makes a case for ecological speciation in a parapatric context, while also highlighting variation in the outcome...
  5. ncbi Quantitative genetic inheritance of morphological divergence in a lake-stream stickleback ecotype pair: implications for reproductive isolation
    D Berner
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland
    J Evol Biol 24:1975-83. 2011
    ..Our study suggests that traits involved in adaptation might contribute to reproductive isolation qualitatively differently, depending on their mode of inheritance...

    Daniel Berner
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Vesalgasse 1, CH 4051 Basel, Switzerland
    Mol Ecol 19:4963-78. 2010
    ..Overall, our comparative approach suggests constraints on speciation due to genetic architecture and limited time for divergence. The relative importance of these factors remains to be quantified by future investigation...

    Dario Moser
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Vesalgasse 1, Basel, Switzerland
