• Harvest is associated with the disruption of social and finescale genetic structure among matrilines of a solitary large carnivore 

      Frank, Shane C.; Pelletier, Fanie; Kopatz, Alexander; Bourret, Audrey; Garant, Dany; Swenson, Jon; Eiken, Hans Geir; Hagen, Snorre; Zedrosser, Andreas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Harvest can disrupt wildlife populations by removing adults with naturally high survival. This can reshape sociospatial structure, genetic composition, fitness, and potentially affect evolution. Genetic tools can detect ...
    • Heritability of head size in a hunted large carnivore, the brown bear (Ursus arctos) 

      Rivrud, Inger Maren; Frank, Shane C.; Bischof, Richard; Mysterud, Atle; Steyaert, Sam; Hertel, Anne Gabriela; Hagen, Snorre; Eiken, Hans Geir; Swenson, Jon; Zedrosser, Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Wild animal populations experience selection pressures from both natural and anthropogenic sources. The availability of extensive pedigrees is increasing along with our ability to quantify the heritability and evolvability ...
