Data from: QTL and quantitative genetic analysis of beak morphology reveals patterns of standing genetic variation in an Estrildid finch

Ulrich Knief, Holger Schielzeth, Bart Kempenaers, Hans Ellegren & Wolfgang Forstmeier
The intra- and interspecific diversity of avian beak morphologies is one of the most compelling examples for the power of natural selection acting on a morphological trait. The development and diversification of the beak has also become a textbook example for evolutionary developmental biology, and variation in expression levels of several genes is known to causally affect beak shape. However, until now no genomic polymorphisms have been identified that are related to beak morphology in...
