    Biology Department, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, USA
    Evolution 67:1622-34. 2013
    ..These results suggest that this demographic transition has increased the adaptive potential of the Utah population, intensified selection for reproductive traits, and de-emphasized selection for survival-related traits...

    Jacob A Moorad
    Duke Population Research Institute and Biology Department, 8, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, USA
    Evolution 67:1635-48. 2013
    ..Selection for ever-mating was the most important source of sexual selection for fitness; variation for ever-mating explained 23% of relative fitness variance...

    Jacob A Moorad
    Duke Population Research Institute and Department of Biology, Duke University, Durham, NC 27708, USA
    Am Nat 181:291-300. 2013
    ..By quantifying linear sources of sexual selection and quadratic sources of sexual selection, we illustrate that the former is stronger in males, while the latter is stronger in females...

    Jacob A Moorad
    Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana 47405, USA
    Genetics 170:1373-84. 2005
    ..As quantitative predictions of selection depend upon understanding genetic variation, our approach reveals the important difference between how inbreeding depression is measured experimentally and how it is viewed by selection...
