Lucati, F., Poignet, M., Miró, A., Trochet, A., Aubret, F., Barthe, L., Bertrand, R., Buchaca, T., Calvez, O., Caner, J., Darnet, E., Denoël, M., Guillaume, O., Le Chevalier, H., Martínez-Silvestre, A., Mossoll-Torres, M., O’Brien, D., Osorio, V., Pottier, G., Richard, M., Sabás, I., Souchet, J., Tomàs, J., & Ventura, M. (2020). Multiple glacial refugia and contemporary dispersal shape the genetic structure of an endemic amphibian from the Pyrenees. Molecular Ecology, 29(15), 2904-2921.
Historical factors (colonization scenarios, demographic oscillations) and contemporary processes (population connectivity, current population size) largely contribute to shaping species’ present-day genetic ...
Oromi Farrús, N., Valbuena-Ureña, E., Soler-Membrives, A., Amat, F., Camarasa, S., Carranza, S., Sanuy, D., & Denoël, M. (2019). Genetic structure of lake and stream populations in a Pyrenean amphibian (Calotriton asper) reveals evolutionary significant units associated with paedomorphosis. Journal of Zoological Systematics and Evolutionary Research, 57(2), 418-430.
Differences in environmental conditions such as those between lakes and streams can produce phenotypic variation and ultimately promote evolutionary diversification. Some species of newts and salamanders can ...
Valbuena-Ureña, E., Oromi Farrús, N., Soler-Membrives, A., Carrranza, S., Amat, F., Camarasa, S., Denoël, M., Guillaume, O., Sanuy, D., Loyau, A., Schmeller, D. S., & Steinfartz, S. (2018). Jailed in the mountains: Genetic diversity and structure of an endemic newt species across the Pyrenees. PLoS ONE, 13(8), 0200214.
The Pyrenees represent a natural laboratory for biogeographic, evolutionary and ecological research of mountain fauna as a result of the high variety of habitats and the profound effect of the glacial and ...
Colleoni, E., Denoël, M., Padoa-Schioppa, E., Scali, S., & Ficetola, G. F. (2014). Rensch’s rule and sexual dimorphism in salamanders: patterns and potential processes. Journal of Zoology, 293(3), 143-151.
Body size is influenced by the interaction of multiple forces, whose effects can determine the occurrence of sexual size dimorphism (SSD). Rensch's rule is the increase of SSD with body size in taxa where ...
Drechsler, A., Geller, D., Freund, K., Schmeller, D. S., Künzel, S., Rupp, O., Loyau, A., Denoël, M., Valbuena-Ureña, E., & Steinfartz, S. (2013). What remains from a 454 run: estimation of success rates of microsatellite loci development in selected newt species (Calotriton asper, Lissotriton helveticus, and Triturus cristatus) and comparison with Illumina-based approaches. Ecology and Evolution, 3(11), 3947-3957.
The development of microsatellite loci has become more efficient using next-generation sequencing (NGS) approaches, and many studies imply that the amount of applicable loci is large. However, few studies have ...
