As first author, I have been main responsible for the study, including experimental design, lab work, analysis, writing and publication process, apart from Thulin et al. (1997b) and Thulin et al. (2011) where Mats Isaksson and Linda Englund, respectively, did the lab work and analysis under my supervision. On Andersson et al. (1998), I designed the study, supervised the lab work and analysis, and contributed in the writing and publication process. On Suchentrunk et al. (1999), I supplied a proportion of the samples included and contributed to the writing. On Jansson et al. (2007), I performed the genotyping and the genetic analyses, and contributed to the writing, and on Quintela et al. (2010) and Höglund et al. (2013) I contributed in project planning, data interpretation and writing. On de Jong et al. (2013) and Malmsten at al. (2014a & b, 2015) I contributed with planning, interpretation and writing, on Fontanesi et al. (2016) I contributed with planning and writing and on Ferreira et al (2016) with samples and writing.

On Fredga et al. (1995), I contributed with lab- and fieldwork and minor comments on the text. On Thulin & Flux (2003), both authors contributed equally in the writing process. For the book “Vilt, människa, samhälle”, I wrote one chapter together with Göran Spong (Spong & Thulin 2010, equal contribution) of which parts were allocated to three other chapters (Andrén et al. 2010, Lundberg et al. 2010 and Widemo et al. 2010).
