    The genetic impact of barriers and Pleistocene glaciations on high latitude resident species has not been widely investigated. The Clark’s nutcracker is an endemic North American corvid closely associated with ...
  • Barks, Patrick M.; Laird, Robert A. (Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2016-06-15)
    Classic theories on the evolution of senescence make the simplifying assumption that all offspring are of equal quality, so that demographic senescence only manifests through declining rates of survival or fecundity. ...
