Frequency-dependent selection and environmental heterogeneity as selective mechanisms in wild populations Poikonen, Tanja (University of Jyväskylä, 2010)
Mappes, Tapio; Koivula, Minna; Koskela, Esa; Oksanen, Tuula A.; Savolainen, Tiina; Sinervo, Barry (Public Library of Science, 2008)Negative frequency-dependence, which favors rare genotypes, promotes the maintenance of genetic variability and is of interest as a potential explanation for genetic differentiation. Density-dependent selection may also ...
The maintenance of sexually antagonistic variation in reproductive success by negative frequency-dependence in the bank vole (Myodes glareolus) Martiskainen, Henna (2011)Natural selection theory predicts low variance in traits closely related to reproductive success, since the most fit trait value should replace all the others. However, a considerable amount of variation is found in ...
Epigenetic mechanisms behind phenotypic changes in different population densities in bank voles (Myodes glareolus) Sorri, Elina (2017)Metsämyyrän (Myodes glareolus) fenotyyppisten muutosten epigeneettiset mekanismit eri populaatiotiheyksissä. Epigeneettisilla mekanismeilla on perustava rooli normaalissa geeniekspression aktiivisuudessa ja ne voidaan ...
Rojas Zuluaga, Bibiana; Gordon, Swanne; Mappes, Johanna (Chinese Academy of Sciences, Institute of Zoology, 2015)Predators efficiently learn to avoid one type of warning signal rather than several, making colour polymorphisms unexpected. Aposematic wood tiger moth males Parasemia plantaginis have either white or yellow hindwing ...
