- Molecular signature of epistatic selection: interrogating genetic interactions in the sex-ratio meiotic drive of Drosophila simulansLuis Miguel Chevin
UMR de Genetique Vegetale, Ferme du Moulon, 91190 Gif sur Yvette, France
Genet Res (Camb) 91:171-82. 2009....
- When do adaptive plasticity and genetic evolution prevent extinction of a density-regulated population?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...
- Adaptation, plasticity, and extinction in a changing environment: towards a predictive theoryLuis 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...
- Fisher's model and the genomics of adaptation: restricted pleiotropy, heterogenous mutation, and parallel evolutionLuis 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...
- Adaptation to marginal habitats by evolution of increased phenotypic plasticityL 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...
- The hitchhiking effect of an autosomal meiotic drive geneLuis 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...
- Hitchhiking both ways: effect of two interfering selective sweeps on linked neutral variationLuis 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...
- Selective sweep at a quantitative trait locus in the presence of background genetic variationLuis 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...
- On measuring selection in experimental evolutionLuis 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...
