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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ludovic Dutoit; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : 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)

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Joanna Sendecka; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    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. Competition, Coexistence and Character Displacement In a Young Avian Hybrid Zone

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Niclas Vallin; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Competition; coexistence; hybridization; ecological speciation; character displacement; pied flycatcher; collared flycatcher; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; Zooekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the ecological and evolutionary implications of a recent secondary contact between two closely related bird species: collared (Ficedula albicollis) and pied (F. hypoleuca) flycatchers. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Chris Wiley; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    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

  5. 5. Sexual Signals and Speciation A Study of the Pied and Collared Flycatcher

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jon Haavie; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology; Speciation; Sexual signals; Hybridization; Reinforcement; Song; Female preference; Sex-linkage; Biologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi;

    Abstract : Speciation is the process in which reproductive barriers evolve between populations. In this thesis I examine how sexual signals contribute to the maintenance, reinforcement or breakdown of reproductive barriers.Male pied flycatchers (Ficedula hypoleuca) and collared flycatchers (F. albicollis) differ in song and plumage traits.
