Phylogeography of Brown and Red-Footed Boobies: a Complex History of Isolation and Gene Flow
Speciation is an important process that is responsible for the generation of biodiversity on Earth. The importance of gene flow during speciation is hotly debated; however, it can be investigated by studying the process ...
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, ...
