Expanding Population Edge Craniometries and Genetics Provide Insights into Dispersal of Commensal Rats through Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia

Louys, Julien; Herrera, Michael B; Thomson, Vicki A; Wiewel, Andrew; Donnellan, S; O'Connor, Sue; Aplin, Ken P


The Nusa Tenggara island chain consists of an archipelago that runs roughly east-west in eastern Indonesia. As part of Wallacea, it has never been connected to any continental landmass, and has been subject to a variety of biological invasions that have populated the islands. Here, we examine the craniometric and molecular genetic records of several species of Rattus sensu law in the island chain. We use the predictions of expanding population edge phenotypic selection in an effort to...[Show more]
