- Consequences of recurrent gene flow from crops to wild relativesRalph Haygood
Department of Zoology, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI 53706, USA
Proc Biol Sci 270:1879-86. 2003..These findings suggest that the spread of crop genes in wild populations should be monitored more closely...
- Sexual conflict and protein polymorphismRalph Haygood
Department of Zoology, University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin 53706, USA
Evolution 58:1414-23. 2004..Such fitter-allele dominance might be typical of a ligand or its receptor due to their biochemistry, in which case polymorphism might be typical of the pair...
- Coexistence in MacArthur-style consumer-resource modelsRalph Haygood
Center for Population Biology, University of California, Davis, California 95616, USA
Theor Popul Biol 61:215-23. 2002..The significance and limitations of the models and results are discussed...
- Proceedings of the SMBE Tri-National Young Investigators' Workshop 2005. Mutation rate and the cost of complexityRalph Haygood
Biology Department, Duke University, NC, USA
Mol Biol Evol 23:957-63. 2006..The net result is that mutation rate probably does tend to increase with complexity, although probably not fast enough to eliminate the cost of complexity...
- The genome of the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratusErica Sodergren
Science 314:941-52. 2006..This echinoderm genome provides an evolutionary outgroup for the chordates and yields insights into the evolution of deuterostomes...
- Migration load and the coexistence of ecologically similar sexuals and asexualsBrian W Spitzer
Department of Biology, Gustavus Adolphus College, St Peter, Minnesota 56082, USA
Am Nat 170:567-72. 2007..This "buffering" effect of migration load is even more relevant in models that include more realistic conditions, such as demographic asymmetries or explicit spatial structure...
- Evolutionary analysis of the cis-regulatory region of the spicule matrix gene SM50 in strongylocentrotid sea urchinsJenna Walters
Department of Biology, Denison University, Granville, OH 43023, USA
Dev Biol 315:567-78. 2008..We speculate that such changes in SM50 and other genes could accumulate to produce altered patterns of gene expression with functional consequences during skeleton formation...
