CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Genotyping by allele-specific PCR.

SNPs are the basis for many polymorphisms that are detected using systems such as restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs), randomly amplified polymorphic DNAs (RAPDs) and amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs). Cleaved amplified polymorphic site (CAPS or PCRRFLP) markers have...

Cover for Calcium transporters: from fields to the table.

Calcium transporters regulate calcium fluxes within cells. Plants, like all organisms, contain channels, pumps and exchangers to carefully modulate intracellular calcium levels. This review presents a summary of the recent advances in cloning and characterizing of these transporters and highlights...

Cover for Population genetic structure in stream insects: what have we learned?

This chapter synthesizes data from 41 studies on 32 species of stream insects in an attempt to answer three questions: First, what is the major dispersal mechanism in aquatic insects, i.e. stream drift or adult flight? If it is stream drift, then genetic variation would be expected to fit the...
