    Albert B Phillimore
    Division of Biology and Natural Environment Research Council Centre for Population Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park Campus, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7PY, United Kingdom
    Am Nat 171:646-57. 2008
    ..Our simulations demonstrate that the observed patterns are most consistent with a model in which allopatric speciation is dominant but in which sympatric speciation is also present and contributes 5% of speciation events...
  2. pmc Are subspecies useful in evolutionary and conservation biology?
    Albert B Phillimore
    Division of Biology and NERC Centre for Population Biology, Imperial College London, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7PY, UK
    Proc Biol Sci 273:1049-53. 2006
    ..The broader picture is that avian subspecies often provide an effective short-cut for estimating patterns of intraspecific genetic diversity, thereby providing a useful tool for the study of evolutionary divergence and conservation...
  3. pmc Differences in spawning date between populations of common frog reveal local adaptation
    Albert B Phillimore
    Division of Biology, Imperial College London, Natural Environment Research Council Centre for Population Biology, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7PY, United Kingdom
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 107:8292-7. 2010
    ..Populations may thus face a microevolutionary and gene flow challenge to advance first spawning date by a further approximately 16-30 days over the next 50 years...
  4. doi request reprint Complex patterns of genetic and phenotypic divergence in an island bird and the consequences for delimiting conservation units
    A B Phillimore
    Division of Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park, Ascot, Berkshire, SL5 7PY, UK
    Mol Ecol 17:2839-53. 2008
    ..A continuum of divergence and a degree of discordance between different characters are both to be expected under simple models of evolution, but they present problems in terms of delimiting conservation units...
  5. ncbi request reprint Biogeographical basis of recent phenotypic divergence among birds: a global study of subspecies richness
    Albert B Phillimore
    Division of Biology and Natural Environment Research Council Centre for Population Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park Campus, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7PY, United Kingdom
    Evolution 61:942-57. 2007
    ..Overall, we demonstrate that biogeographic models can explain about 30% of the global variation in subspecies richness in birds...

    Albert B Phillimore
    Natural Environment Research Council Centre for Population Biology and Division of Biology, Imperial College London, Ascot, Berkshire, United Kingdom
    PLoS Biol 6:e71. 2008
    ..Taken together, our data strongly support a model of density-dependent speciation in birds, whereby speciation slows as ecological opportunities and geographical space place limits on clade growth...

    Jarrod D Hadfield
    Division of Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7PY, UK
    Proc Biol Sci 273:1347-53. 2006
    ..Taken together, these results indicate that the assumptions of indirect models of sexual selection are not supported by the genetic basis of the traits reported on here...

    Sonya M Clegg
    Division of Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7PY, UK
    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 365:1077-92. 2010
    ..We find no strong evidence that gene flow constrains phenotypic divergence in either species, suggesting that levels of inter-island gene flow do not explain the absence of a radiation across this archipelago...
