  1. 1. Determinants of genomic diversity in the collared flycatcher (Ficedula albicollis)

    Author : Ludovic Dutoit; Hans Ellegren; Asher Cutter; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; collared flycatcher; Ficedula albicollis; enetic diversity; sexual conflict; effective population size; nucleotide diversity; linked selection; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : Individuals vary from each other in their genetic content. Genetic diversity is at the core of the evolutionary theory. Rooted in a solid theoretical framework developed as early as the 1930s, current empirical observations of genomic diversity became possible due to technological advances. READ MORE

  2. 2. Age, Longevity and Life-History Trade-Offs in the Collared Flycatcher (Ficedula albicollis)

    Author : Joanna Sendecka; Lars Gustafsson; Anna Qvarnström; Pat Monaghan; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Ecology; age; collared flycatcher; Ficedula albicollis; long-term study; senescence; longevity; reproductive success; selection; individual quality; breeding experience; reproductive effort optimization; terminal investment; life-history trade-offs; reproductive costs; Ekologi;

    Abstract : Age is often a neglected factor in ecological studies. However, age-related changes in reproduction and survival of organisms may strongly influence population dynamics. READ MORE

  3. 3. Speciation - What Can be Learned from a Flycatcher Hybrid Zone?

    Author : Chris Wiley; Anna Qvarnström; Lars Gustafsson; Roger Butlin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Biology; speciation; reinforcement; fitness; postzygotic isolation; asymmetrical hybridization; hybrid zone; species recognition; mate choice; sexual selection; direct benefits; parasite resistance; delayed plumage maturation; Ficedula hypoleuca; Ficedula albicollis; flycatcher; Biologi;

    Abstract : Studies of hybrid zones offer important insights into the process of speciation. Much of the knowledge to be gained is dependent on an accurate estimation of the strength of pre- and post-zygotic isolation between hybridizing taxa. My results demonstrate that hybridization can variously affect different components of fitness. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sexual selection in the collared flycatcher (Ficedula albicollis) : A life-history perspective

    Author : Anna Qvarnström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; Sexual selection; life-history; honest signalling; fighting ability; genotype-environment interaction; direct benefits; indirect benefits; Ekologi; Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; Animal Ecology; zooekologi;

    Abstract : This thesis integrates sexual selection theory with life history theory to elucidate the causes and consequences of variation in a male secondary sexual trait. The model organism, the collared flycatcher (Ficedula albicollis), was studied on Gotland, Sweden. READ MORE
