Stochastic and adaptive processes affect rapid evolution of two invasive plants in North America
Evolution can occur rapidly on timescales of years to decades. In addition to adaptive responses to natural selection, stochastic processes such as gene flow and genetic drift may influence rapid evolution in many species. ...
Evolution of Oxidative Metabolism in Fishes
My study investigated the evolution of oxidative metabolism in fishes. While intense selection for, or against, non-synonymous point mutations in coding sequence drives the evolution of mitochondrial OXPHOS genes, ...
Genomic Consequences of Mating System Evolution in the Pacific Coastal Dune Endemic, Abronia Umbellata (Nyctaginaceae)
The advent of next-generation sequencing has significantly reduced the cost of obtaining large-scale genetic resources, opening the door for genomic studies of non-model but ecologically interesting species. The shift in ...
