Data from: Genomic and phenotypic architecture of a spruce hybrid zone (Picea sitchensis x P. glauca)

Jill A. Hamilton, Christian Lexer & Sally N. Aitken
Interspecific hybridization may enhance the capacity of populations to adapt to changing environments, and has practical implications for reforestation. We use genomewide estimates of admixture and phenotypic traits for trees in a common garden to examine the extent and direction of gene flow across a Picea hybrid zone, testing assumptions of the bounded hybrid superiority and tension zone models of hybrid zone maintenance. Seeds were collected from the ecological transition zone spanning from maritime to...

Data from: Genetic estimates of population age in the water flea, Daphnia magna

John D. Robinson, Christoph R. Haag, David W. Hall, V. Pajunen & John P. Wares
Genetic datasets can be used to date evolutionary events, even on recent time scales if sufficient data are available. We used statistics calculated from multilocus microsatellite datasets to estimate population ages in data generated through coalescent simulations and in samples from populations of known age in a metapopulation of Daphnia magna in Finland. Our simulation results show that age estimates improve with additional loci and define a time frame over which these statistics are most...
