  1. pmc Imperfect genes, Fisherian mutation and the evolution of sex
    J R Peck
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Sussex, Brighton, United Kingdom
    Genetics 145:1171-99. 1997
    ..Our model focuses on fertility selection in an hermaphroditic plant. However, the results are likely to generalize to a wide variety of other situations as well...
  2. pmc Limited dispersal, deleterious mutations and the evolution of sex
    J R Peck
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Sussex, Falmer, Brighton, United Kingdom
    Genetics 142:1053-60. 1996
    ..The model is described using the example of a hermaphroditic plant population. However, the results should apply to animal populations as well...
  3. ncbi request reprint Altruism, sex, and inbreeding when the genotype-phenotype map is additive
    Joel R Peck
    Centre for the Study of Evolution, School of Life Sciences, The University of Sussex, Brighton BN1 9QG, UK
    J Theor Biol 239:130-40. 2006
    ..The results also suggest that inbreeding can lead to a similar result as asexuality. That is, inbreeding seems to enhance the probability that altruistic phenotypes will be eliminated...
  4. pmc Sex causes altruism. Altruism causes sex. Maybe
    Joel R Peck
    Centre for the Study of Evolution, School of Life Sciences, The University of Sussex, Brighton BNI 9QG, UK
    Proc Biol Sci 271:993-1000. 2004
    ..This might help to explain why asexual lineages are prone to rapid extinction...
  5. ncbi request reprint Mutation and selection in a large population
    J R Peck
    Centre for the Study of Evolution, School of Life Sciences, University of East Sussex, Brighton BN1 9QG, East Sussex, UK
    Biosystems 74:15-27. 2004
    ..We present numerical simulations to test the applicability of our theoretical formulations. The results of these simulations are in very reasonable agreement with the theoretical predictions...
  6. ncbi request reprint Adaptation and species range
    Joel R Peck
    Centre for the Study of Evolution, School of Life Sciences, University of Sussex, Brighton BN1 9QG, East Sussex, United Kingdom
    Evolution 58:211-21. 2004
    ..If environmental conditions change in a way that alters species range, then phase III can be effective, leading to an enhancement of adaptedness throughout a structured population...
  7. ncbi request reprint Mutation and sex in a competitive world
    J R Peck
    Centre for the Study of Evolution, The University of Sussex, Brighton, UK
    Nature 406:399-404. 2000
    ..One implication of our findings is that experimental efforts to demonstrate synergistic epistasis may not succeed unless the experiments are redesigned to make them much more naturalistic...
  8. doi request reprint Is life impossible? Information, sex, and the origin of complex organisms
    Joel R Peck
    School of Life Sciences, The University of Sussex, Brighton BN1 9QG, United Kingdom
    Evolution 64:3300-9. 2010
    ..There is a good reason to believe that these conditions are relevant for very early organisms, and thus the results presented may provide a solution to a long-standing logical problem associated with the early evolution of life...
  9. pmc The anomalous effects of biased mutation
    D Waxman
    Centre for the Study of Evolution, School of Biological Sciences, University of Sussex, Brighton BN1 9QG, Sussex, U K
    Genetics 164:1615-26. 2003
    ..Thus at each of these loci, the mean allelic effect eventually becomes extreme. This suggests that some of the models of mutation most commonly used in quantitative genetics should be modified so as to introduce genetic constraints...

    D Waxman
    Centre for the Study of Evolution, School of Life Sciences, University of Sussex, Brighton, Sussex BN1 9QG, UK

  11. ncbi request reprint The frequency of the perfect genotype in a population subject to pleiotropic mutation
    D Waxman
    Centre for the Study of Evolution, School of Life Sciences, University of Sussex, Brighton, UK
    Theor Popul Biol 69:409-18. 2006
    ..Additionally, a simple and robust numerical approach is also presented that allows the treatment of some other mutation distributions, where there are an arbitrary number of selected traits...
  12. doi request reprint Pleiotropic scaling of gene effects and the 'cost of complexity'
    Gunter P Wagner
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut 06520 8106, USA
    Nature 452:470-2. 2008
    ..This suggests that evolution of higher organisms does not suffer a 'cost of complexity' because most mutations affect few traits and the size of the effects does not decrease with pleiotropy...
