  1. doi 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. doi The genomics of organismal diversification illuminated by adaptive radiations
    Daniel Berner
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Vesalgasse 1, 4051 Basel, Switzerland Electronic address
    Trends Genet 31:491-9. 2015
    ..We conclude by highlighting avenues for future research on adaptive radiations, including the discovery of 'adaptation genes' based on genome scans using replicate convergent populations. ..
  3. doi 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. ..
  4. 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...

    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...

    D Berner
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland
    J Evol Biol 24:1975-83. 2011

    Daniel Berner
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Vesalgasse 1, CH 4051 Basel, Switzerland
    Mol Ecol 19:4963-78. 2010

    Dario Moser
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Vesalgasse 1, Basel, Switzerland
    PLoS ONE 7:e50620. 2012
