Signatures of Directional and Balancing Selection in the Silverside Basilichthys microlepidotus (Teleostei: Atherinopsidae) Inhabiting a Polluted River
(Springer Verlag, 2015)
© 2015, Springer Science+Business Media New York. Currently environmental pollution is one of the most important factors affecting natural populations and acting as a strong selective pressure. Therefore, identifying genes ...
Analysis of direct and indirect selection and indices in soybean segregating populations
Estimates of gain with selection are very useful in breeding programs to predict the success of selection. Index-based simultaneous selection makes breeding more successful. The objective of this report was to estimate and ...

The role of quantitative genetic studies in animal physiological ecology
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2005)
Is natural selection promoting sexual dimorphism in the Green-backed Firecrown Hummingbird (Sephanoides Sephaniodes)?
In many hummingbird species there is an opposite pattern of sexual dimorphism in bill length and other morphometric measures of body size. These differences seem to be closely related with differences in foraging ecology ...
SIZE AS A LINE OF LEAST RESISTANCE II: DIRECT SELECTION ON SIZE OR CORRELATED RESPONSE DUE TO CONSTRAINTS?
(WILEY-BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, INC, 2010)
Evolutionary change in New World Monkey (NWM) skulls occurred primarily along the line of least resistance defined by size (including allometric) variation (g(max)). Although the direction of evolution was aligned with ...
Pollinator-mediated selection on the nectar guide phenotype in the Andean monkey flower, Mimulus luteus
(Ecological Society of America, 2003)
Mimulus luteus (Scrophulariaceae) is a perennial herb occurring in the South American Andes that shows a wide variation in the size and shape of a red spot on the lower lobe of the yellow flower. We describe the preference ...
Use of direct and iterative solvers for estimation of SNP effects in genome-wide selection
(Soc Brasil Genetica, 2010-01-01)
The aim of this study was to compare iterative and direct solvers for estimation of marker effects in genomic selection. One iterative and two direct methods were used: Gauss-Seidel with Residual Update, Cholesky Decomposition ...
