We study the selective forces that currently act on vertebrates, e.g., the effects of human activities in interaction with natural and sexual selection. Our main models are the salmonid fishes of Switzerland, horses, and humans. We use a wide range of methods, from studying effects of single genes to analyses of behavioral decisions and large-scale experiments with natural and laboratory populations.
