Data from: The coupling hypothesis: why genome scans may fail to map local adaptation genes

Nicolas Bierne, John Welch, Etienne Loire, François Bonhomme & Patrice David
Genomic scans of multiple populations often reveal marker loci with greatly increased differentiation between populations. Often this differentiation coincides in space with contrasts in ecological factors, forming a genetic–environment association (GEA). GEAs imply a role for local adaptation, and so it is tempting to conclude that the strongly differentiated markers are themselves under ecologically based divergent selection, or are closely linked to loci under such selection. Here, we highlight an alternative and neglected explanation: intrinsic...
