Suggestions for future research
Analyses Expectations
Density-dependence Greater frequency of abnormalities at high population density
Capture probability Minor abnormalities and smaller size should increase the probability of capture and hence the frequency estimate
Genome-wide sequencing to quantify mutations Greater frequency of mutations in specimens from Fukushima than in control areas, increasing frequency across generations due to mutation accumulation, and greater frequency in irradiated animals from the laboratory compared to controls.
