    • Adaptive Evolution of Multiple Traits Through Multiple Mutations at a Single Gene 

      Linnen, Catherine Ramsay; Poh, Yu-Ping; Peterson, Brant K.; Barrett, Rowan; Larson, J. G.; Jensen, J. D.; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2013)
      The identification of precise mutations is required for a complete understanding of the underlying molecular and evolutionary mechanisms driving adaptive phenotypic change. Using plasticine models in the field, we show ...
    • Convergence in pigmentation at multiple levels: mutations, genes and function 

      Manceau, M; Domingues, V. S.; Linnen, Catherine Ramsay; Rosenblum, E. B.; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (The Royal Society, 2010)
      Convergence—the independent evolution of the same trait by two or more taxa—has long been of interest to evolutionary biologists, but only recently has the molecular basis of phenotypic convergence been identified. Here, ...
    • Five hundred microsatellite loci for Peromyscus 

      Weber, Jesse N.; Peters, Maureen B.; Tsyusko, Olga V.; Linnen, Catherine Ramsay; Hagen, Cris; Schable, Nancy A.; Tuberville, Tracey D.; McKee, Anna M.; Lance, Stacey L.; Jones, Kenneth L.; Fisher, Heidi; Dewey, Michael J.; Hoekstra, Hopi E.; Glenn, Travis C. (Springer Science + Business Media, 2010)
      Mice of the genus Peromyscus, including several endangered subspecies, occur throughout North America and have been important models for conservation research. We describe 526 primer pairs that amplify microsatellite DNA ...
    • Measuring Natural Selection on Genotypes and Phenotypes in the Wild 

      Linnen, Catherine Ramsay; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2009)
      A complete understanding of the role of natural selection in driving evolutionary change requires accurate estimates of the strength of selection acting in the wild. Accordingly, several approaches using a variety of ...
    • On the Origin and Spread of an Adaptive Allele in Deer Mice 

      Linnen, Catherine Ramsay; Kingsley, Evan Prentice; Jensen, J. D.; Hoekstra, Hopi E. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2009)
      Adaptation is a central focus of biology, although it can be difficult to identify both the strength and agent of selection and the underlying molecular mechanisms causing change. We studied cryptically colored deer mice ...
    • Phylogenetic Analysis of Nuclear and Mitochondrial Genes Reveals Evolutionary Relationships and Mitochondrial Introgression in the Sertifer Species Group of the Genus Neodiprion (Hymenoptera: Diprionidae) 

      Linnen, Catherine R.; Farrell, Brian D. (Elsevier, 2008)
      Neodiprion Rohwer (Hymenoptera: Diprionidae) is a Holarctic genus of conifer-feeding sawflies with a remarkable amount of inter- and intraspecific diversity in host use, behavior, and development. This var- iation is ...
