- A demographic transition altered the strength of selection for fitness and age-specific survival and fertility in a 19th century American populationJacob A Moorad
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...
- Multi-level sexual selection: individual and family-level selection for mating success in a historical human populationJacob 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...
- Selection gradients, the opportunity for selection, and the coefficient of determinationJacob 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...
- A comparative assessment of univariate longevity measures using zoological animal recordsJacob A Moorad
Department of Biology, Duke University, Durham, NC 27708, USA
Aging Cell 11:940-8. 2012..These measures should take the place of MRLS in comparative studies of lifespan...
- A genetic interpretation of the variation in inbreeding depressionJacob 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...
