Repeated divergent selection on pigmentation genes in a rapid finch radiation [Science Advances]

Keywords : Capuchino Seedeaters, genomic scan, sexual selection, melanogenesis, neotropics

par Frédéric Magné - publié le

Instances of recent and rapid speciation are suitable for associating phenotypes with their causal genotypes, especially if gene flow homogenizes areas of the genome that are not under divergent selection. We study a rapid radiation of nine sympatric bird species known as capuchino seedeaters, which are differentiated in sexually selected characters of male plumage and song.(...)
