• Genetic Basis of Variation in Bill Morphology in a Free-Living House Sparrow Metapopulation 

      Lundregan, Sarah (Master thesis, 2017)
      Bill morphology is an ecologically important trait, which shows substantial phenotypic variation, is highly heritable and is under selection in many bird species. These characteristics underscore the suitability of bill ...
    • Inferences of genetic architecture of bill morphology in house sparrow using a high-density SNP array point to a polygenic basis 

      Lundregan, Sarah; Hagen, Ingerid Julie; Gohli, Jostein; Niskanen, Alina Katariina; Kemppainen, Petri; Ringsby, Thor Harald; Kvalnes, Thomas; Pärn, Henrik; Rønning, Bernt; Holand, Håkon; Ranke, Peter Sjolte; Båtnes, Anna Solvang; Selvik, Linn-Karina M.; Lien, Sigbjørn; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Husby, Arild; Jensen, Henrik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Understanding the genetic architecture of quantitative traits can provide insights into the mechanisms driving phenotypic evolution. Bill morphology is an ecologically important and phenotypically variable trait, which is ...
    • Signs of adaptation to trace metal contamination in a common urban bird 

      Andrew, Samuel C.; Taylor, Mark Patrick; Lundregan, Sarah; Lien, Sigbjørn; Jensen, Henrik; Griffith, Simon C. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Metals and metalloids at elevated concentrations can be toxic to both humans and wildlife. In particular, lead exposure can act as a stressor to wildlife and cause negative effects on fitness. Any ability to adapt to stress ...
