- Disentangling reasons for low Y chromosome variation in the greater white-toothed shrew (Crocidura russula)Lori J Lawson Handley
Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne, CH 1015 Lausanne, Switzerland
Genetics 173:935-42. 2006..This study illustrates that demography and life-history effects should be scrutinized before inferring strong selective pressure as a reason for low diversity on the Y chromosome...
- Genetic evidence for female-biased dispersal and gene flow in a polygynous primateRobert L Hammond
Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne, Biology Building, Lausanne 1015, Switzerland
Proc Biol Sci 273:479-84. 2006..We suggest that the cost-benefit balance of dispersal to males and females is tightly linked to the unique hierarchical social structure of hamadryas baboons and that dispersal and social organization have coevolved...
