BMC Genet 12:26. 2011....
- Selection at the Y chromosome of the African buffalo driven by rainfallPim van Hooft
Mammal Research Institute, Department of Zoology and Entomology, University of Pretoria, Pretoria, South Africa
PLoS ONE 2:e1086. 2007..The mammalian Y chromosome, interacting with ecological processes, may affect male reproductive success much more strongly than previously thought...
- Dispersal in Mastomys natalensis mice: use of fine-scale genetic analyses for pest managementPim van Hooft
Department of Biology, University of Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium
Hereditas 145:262-73. 2008..Most juveniles appeared to be local recruits, but they did not seem to stay in their native area for more than two months. Finally, possible implications for pest management are discussed...
- Rainfall-driven sex-ratio genes in African buffalo suggested by correlations between Y-chromosomal haplotype frequencies and foetal sex ratioPim van Hooft
Resource Ecology Group, Wageningen University, 6708 PB Wageningen, The Netherlands
BMC Evol Biol 10:106. 2010..These sex-ratio (SR) genes modify (suppress) gamete transmission in their own favour at a fitness cost, allowing for stable polymorphism...
- Global lack of flyway structure in a cosmopolitan bird revealed by a genome wide survey of single nucleotide polymorphismsRobert H S Kraus
Resource Ecology Group, Wageningen University, PO Box 47, 6700 AA, Wageningen, The Netherlands
Mol Ecol 22:41-55. 2013..These diverse approaches all support the conclusion that there is a lack of clear population structure, suggesting that the world's mallards, perhaps with minor exceptions, form a single large, mainly interbreeding population...
- The development of a genome wide SNP set for the Barnacle goose Branta leucopsisRudy M Jonker
Resource Ecology Group, Wageningen University, Wageningen, The Netherlands
PLoS ONE 7:e38412. 2012....
- Widespread horizontal genomic exchange does not erode species barriers among sympatric ducksRobert H S Kraus
Resource Ecology Group, Wageningen University, 6700 AA Wageningen, The Netherlands
BMC Evol Biol 12:45. 2012..There are many sympatric and ecologically similar duck species, among which fertile hybrids occur relatively frequently in nature, yet these species remain distinct...
- Positive Selection of Deleterious Alleles through Interaction with a Sex-Ratio Suppressor Gene in African Buffalo: A Plausible New Mechanism for a High Frequency AnomalyPim van Hooft

- Reintroductions and genetic introgression from domestic pigs have shaped the genetic population structure of Northwest European wild boarDaniël J Goedbloed
Resource Ecology Group, Wageningen UR, P, O, Box 47, Wageningen 6700AA, The Netherlands
BMC Genet 14:43. 2013..In this study we genotyped 351 Single Nucleotide Polymorphism markers evenly spread across the genome in 645 wild boar (Sus scrofa) from Northwest Europe to evaluate determinants of genetic population structure...
- Evolution and connectivity in the world-wide migration system of the mallard: inferences from mitochondrial DNARobert H S Kraus
Resource Ecology Group, Wageningen University, 6700 AA, Wageningen, The Netherlands
BMC Genet 12:99. 2011..Hypothesised mallard flyways are tested explicitly by analysing mitochondrial mallard DNA from the whole northern hemisphere...
- Genome wide SNP discovery, analysis and evaluation in mallard (Anas platyrhynchos)Robert H S Kraus
Resource Ecology Group, Wageningen University, PO Box 47, 6700 AA Wageningen, The Netherlands
BMC Genomics 12:150. 2011..For large scale identification of SNPs we performed Illumina sequencing of wild mallard DNA and compared our data with ongoing genome and EST sequencing of domesticated conspecifics. This is the first study of its kind for waterfowl...
