- When bigger is not better: selection against large size, high condition and fast growth in juvenile lemon sharksJ D Dibattista
Redpath Museum and Department of Biology, McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada
J Evol Biol 20:201-12. 2007..Our results support those of some other recent studies in suggesting that bigger/fatter/faster is not always better, and may often be worse...
- Are indirect genetic benefits associated with polyandry? Testing predictions in a natural population of lemon sharksJoseph D DiBattista
Redpath Museum and Department of Biology, McGill University, 859 Sherbrooke St West, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Mol Ecol 17:783-95. 2008..Our inability to find indirect genetic benefits of polyandry despite detailed pedigree and survival information suggests the need for similar assessments in other natural populations...
- A genetic assessment of polyandry and breeding-site fidelity in lemon sharksJoseph D DiBattista
Redpath Museum and Department of Biology, McGill University, 859 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Mol Ecol 17:3337-51. 2008..e. body size and growth) among sites. The finding of at least some site fidelity in females also supports the need for careful conservation of each nursery...
- Evolutionary potential of a large marine vertebrate: quantitative genetic parameters in a wild populationJoseph D DiBattista
Redpath Museum and Department of Biology, McGill University, Montreal, QC, H3A 2K6 Canada
Evolution 63:1051-67. 2009..We also show how single-generation pedigrees, and even simple marker-based regression methods, can provide accurate estimates of quantitative genetic parameters in at least some natural systems...
