Many key questions in evolutionary ecology require the use of variance ratios such as heritability, repeatability, and individual resource specialization. These ratios allow to understand how phenotypic variation is structured into genetic and non-genetic components, to identify how much organisms vary in the resources they use or how functional traits structure species communities. Understanding [...]

Embedding indigenous principles in genomic research of culturally significant species: a conservation genomics case study

Levi Collier-Robinson, Aisling Rayne, Makarini Rupene, et al.

Indigenous peoples around the world are leading discussion regarding genomic research of humans, and more recently, species of cultural significance, to ensure the ethical and equitable use of DNA. Within a Māori (indigenous people of Aotearoa New Zealand) worldview, genomic data obtained from taonga (culturally significant) species has whakapapa – generally defined as genealogy, whakapapa layers [...]
