Sex‐linked genetic diversity and differentiation in a globally distributed avian species complex

Sex chromosomes often bear distinct patterns of genetic variation due to unique patterns of inheritance and demography. The processes of mutation, recombination, genetic drift and selection also influence rates of evolution on sex chromosomes …

Genomic variation across two barn swallow hybrid zones reveals traits associated with divergence in sympatry and allopatry

Hybrid zones are geographic regions where isolating barriers between divergent populations are challenged by admixture. Identifying factors that facilitate or inhibit hybridization in sympatry can illuminate the processes that maintain those …
