- The impact of environmental heterogeneity on genetic architecture in a wild population of Soay sheepMatthew R Robinson
Institute of Evolutionary Biology, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK
Genetics 181:1639-48. 2009..This study demonstrates that the genetic architecture of traits is not stable under temporally varying environments and highlights the fact that evolutionary processes may depend largely upon ecological conditions...
- Quantifying multivariate plasticity: genetic variation in resource acquisition drives plasticity in resource allocation to components of life historyMatthew R Robinson
Department of Animal and Plant Science, University of Sheffield, Alfred Denny Building, Western Bank, Sheffield, S10 2TN, UK
Ecol Lett 16:281-90. 2013..These results suggest that genotype-environment effects for resource acquisition can maintain variation in life-history components that are typically observed in the wild...
- Senescence and age-specific trade-offs between reproduction and survival in female Asian elephantsMatthew R Robinson
Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK
Ecol Lett 15:260-6. 2012....
- Environment-dependent selection on mate choice in a natural population of birdsMatthew R Robinson
Department of Animal and Plant Science, University of Sheffield, Western Bank, Sheffield, UK
Ecol Lett 15:611-8. 2012..Our results imply that sexual selection within a population can be highly variable and dependent upon the prevailing weather conditions experienced by individuals...
- Environmental heterogeneity generates fluctuating selection on a secondary sexual traitMatthew R Robinson
Institute of Evolutionary Biology, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh, West Mains Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Curr Biol 18:751-7. 2008..Such fluctuating selection may play an important role in preventing the erosion of genetic variance in secondary sexual traits...
- Live fast, die young: trade-offs between fitness components and sexually antagonistic selection on weaponry in Soay sheepMatthew R Robinson
Institute of Evolutionary Biology, University of Edinburgh, West Mains Road, Edinburgh EH9 3JT, United Kingdom
Evolution 60:2168-81. 2006..Our results therefore suggest that trade-offs between different components of fitness and antagonistic selection between the sexes may maintain genetic variation for secondary sexual traits within a population...
- Function of weaponry in females: the use of horns in intrasexual competition for resources in female Soay sheepMatthew R Robinson
Institute of Evolutionary Biology, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh, West Mains Road, Edinburgh EH9 3JT, UK
Biol Lett 3:651-4. 2007....
