Predation Shapes the Evolutionary Traits of Cervid Weapons

Sexually selected weapons evolved to maximize the individual reproductive success of males in many polygynous breeding species. Many weapons are also retained outside of reproductive periods for secondary reasons, but the importance of these secondary functions is poorly understood. Here … read more

Dna Profiles of the Eastern Canadian Wolf & the Red Wolf Provide Evidence For a Common Evolutionary History Independent of the Gray Wolf

The origin and taxonomy of the red wolf (Canis rufus) have been the subject of considerable debate and it has been suggested that this taxon was recently formed as a result of hybridization between the coyote and gray wolf. Like … read more

A Genome-wide Perspective On The Evolutionary History Of Enigmatic Wolf-like Canids

High-throughput genotyping technologies developed for model species can potentially increase the resolution of demographic history and ancestry in wild relatives. We use a SNP genotyping microarray developed for the domestic dog to assay variation in over 48K loci in wolf-like … read more

Going Coastal: Shared Evolutionary History between Coastal British Columbia and Southeast Alaska Wolves (Canis lupus)

Byron V. Weckworth, Natalie G. Dawson, Sandra L. Talbot, Melanie J. Flamme, Joseph A. Cook Many coastal species occupying the temperate rainforests of the Pacific Northwest in North America comprise endemic populations genetically and ecologically distinct from interior continental conspecifics. … read more
