The stuff new species are made of?

Article metrics

A genome-wide linkage map for the threespine stickleback provides a first glimpse of the evolutionary genetic basis of morphological differentiation in a non-model vertebrate. Within extremely short evolutionary time spans, significant adaptive changes of known ecological consequence seem to have been brought about by a surprisingly small number of loci with major phenotypic effects.
