    Luis Miguel Chevin
    Division of Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park Campus, Ascot, Berkshire, SL5 7PY, United Kingdom
    Evolution 64:1143-50. 2010
    ..In contrast, density dependence of population growth always hinders persistence. With theta-logistic population regulation, a lower value of theta produces a faster initial population decline and a higher extinction risk...
  3. pmc Adaptation, plasticity, and extinction in a changing environment: towards a predictive theory
    Luis Miguel Chevin
    Division of Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park, United Kingdom
    PLoS Biol 8:e1000357. 2010
    ..We use environmental tolerance curves and other examples of ecological and evolutionary responses to climate change to illustrate how these mechanistic approaches can be developed for predictive purposes...
  4. doi Fisher's model and the genomics of adaptation: restricted pleiotropy, heterogenous mutation, and parallel evolution
    Luis Miguel Chevin
    Division of Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park Campus, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7PY, United Kingdom
    Evolution 64:3213-31. 2010
    ..The latter impacts the genomic distribution of s, but has a much milder effect on parallel evolution. We discuss these results in the light of evolution experiments...
  5. doi Adaptation to marginal habitats by evolution of increased phenotypic plasticity
    L M Chevin
    Division of Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park Campus, Ascot, Berkshire, UK
    J Evol Biol 24:1462-76. 2011
    ..Our results shed light on the widely observed involvement of partially adaptive plasticity in phenotypic clines, and on the mechanisms causing geographic variation in plasticity...
  6. pmc The hitchhiking effect of an autosomal meiotic drive gene
    Luis Miguel Chevin
    UMR de Génétique Végétale du Moulon, INRA Université Paris XI CNRS INA P G, 91190 Gif sur Yvette, France
    Genetics 173:1829-32. 2006
    ..We study this hitchhiking effect in the case of true meiotic drive in autosomes and show that it is more dependent on the recombination rate than in the classical case of a gene positively selected at the organism level...
  7. pmc Hitchhiking both ways: effect of two interfering selective sweeps on linked neutral variation
    Luis Miguel Chevin
    UMR de Genetique Vegetale, Ferme du Moulon, Gif sur Yvette, France
    Genetics 180:301-16. 2008
    ..In situations where positive selection is suspected a priori at several closely linked loci, the polymorphism pattern in the region may also be informative about their selective histories...
  8. pmc Selective sweep at a quantitative trait locus in the presence of background genetic variation
    Luis Miguel Chevin
    UMR de Genetique Vegetale, Ferme du Moulon, Gif su Yvette, France
    Genetics 180:1645-60. 2008
    ..Overall, our results suggest that phenotypic traits exhibiting clear-cut molecular signatures of selection may represent a biased subset of all adaptive traits...

    Luis Miguel Chevin
    Division of Biology, Imperial College London, Ascot SL5 7PY, UK
    Biol Lett 7:210-3. 2011
    ..I also discuss how density and frequency dependence of population growth affect selection and its measurement in evolution experiments...
