Infrapopulation size explains genetic diversity in a host-symbiont non-model system

Understanding what shapes variation in genetic diversity among species remains a major challenge in evolutionary ecology, and it has been seldom studied in parasites and other host-symbiont...

Bees not the be-all and end-all to pollination

Wild and managed bees are well documented as effective pollinators of global crops of economic importance. However, the contributions by pollinators other than bees have been little explored. This...

Vertebrate road-kill patterns in Mediterranean habitats: who, when and where.

Road-kill is the most recognized impact of traffic and an important threat for biodiversity. Nevertheless, most research on this topic deals with particular species or with road features,...

Context-dependent effects of yolk androgens on nestling performance

Maternal effects have a great influence on offspring phenotype. In oviparous species, females can adjust offspring development by changing the levels of certain components of the egg (like yolk...
