Data from: Stepwise colonization of the Andes by Ruddy Ducks and the evolution of novel β-globin variants

Violeta Muñoz-Fuentes, Maria Cortazar-Chinarro, Maria Lozano & Kevin G. McCracken
Andean uplift played a key role in Neotropical bird diversification, yet past dispersal and genetic adaptation to high-altitude environments remain little understood. Here we use multilocus population genetics to study population history and historical demographic processes in the ruddy duck (Oxyura jamaicensis), a stiff-tailed diving duck comprising three subspecies distributed from Canada to Tierra del Fuego and inhabiting wetlands from sea level to 4500 m in the Andes. We sequenced the mitochondrial DNA, four autosomal...
