      Myriapods (e.g., centipedes and millipedes) display a simple homonomous body plan relative to other arthropods. All members of the class are terrestrial, but they attained terrestriality independently of insects. Myriapoda ...
    • Fungal Symbionts as Manipulators of Plant Reproductive Biology 

      Gorischek, Alexander M.; Afkhami, Michelle E.; Seifert, Elizabeth K.; Rudgers, Jennifer A. (2013-04)
      Symbioses have shaped the evolution of life, most notably through the fixation of heritable symbionts into organelles. The inheritance of symbionts promotes mutualism and fixation by coupling partner fitness. However, ...

      Ryan, Joseph F.; Pang, Kevin; Schnitzler, Christine E.; Nguyen, Anh-Dao; Moreland, R. Travis; Simmons, David K.; Koch, Bernard J.; Francis, Warren R.; Havlak, Paul; NISC Comparative Sequencing Program; Smith, Stephen A.; Putnam, Nicholas H.; Haddock, Steven H.D.; Dunn, Casey W.; Wolfsberg, Tyra G.; Mullikin, James C.; Martindale, Mark Q.; Baxevanis, Andreas D. (2013)
      An understanding of ctenophore biology is critical for reconstructing events that occurred early in animal evolution. Toward this goal, we have sequenced, assembled, and annotated the genome of the ctenophore Mnemiopsis ...
    • Geographic and population variation in pollinating seed-consuming interactions between senita cacti (Lophocereus schottii) and senita moths (Upiga virescens) 

      Fleming, Theodore H.; Holland, J. Nathaniel (1999)
      Interspecific interactions can vary within and among populations and geographic locations. This variation can subsequently influence the evolution and coevolution of species interactions. We investigated population and ...
    • Ghosts of Habitats Past: Environmental Carry-Over Effects Drive Population Dynamics in Novel Habitat 

      Van Allen, Benjamin G.; Rudolf, Volker H.W. (2013-05)
      The phenotype of adults can be strongly influenced by the environmental conditions experienced during development. Consequently, variation in habitat quality across space and through time also leads to differences in the ...
    • Habitat use and resource tracking by African Ceratogymna hornbills: implications for seed dispersal and forest conservation 

      Smith, Thomas B.; Whitney, Kenneth D. (1998)
      Conservation of tropical forests requires an understanding of the seasonal patterns of abundance and distribution of important seed dispersers. In the forests of Central Africa, three species of hornbills in the genus ...
    • Hemichordate genomes and deuterostome origins 

      Simakov, Oleg; Kawashima, Takeshi; Marlétaz, Ferdinand; Jenkins, Kenneth W.; Levine, Judith; Gonzalez, Paul; Cameron, Christopher; Fritzenwanker, Jens H.; Pani, Ariel M.; Goto, Hiroki; Kanda, Miyuki; Arakaki, Nana; Yamasaki, Shinichi; Richards, Stephen; M (2015)
      Acorn worms, also known as enteropneust (literally, ‘gut-breathing’) hemichordates, are marine invertebrates that share features with echinoderms and chordates. Together, these three phyla comprise the deuterostomes. Here ...
    • Herbivore-induced changes in plant carbon allocation: Assessment of below-ground C fluxes using carbon-14 

      Crossley, D.A. Jr; Cheng, Weixin; Holland, J. Nathaniel (1996-03)
      Effects of above-ground herbivory on shortterm plant carbon allocation were studied using maize (Zea mays) and a generalist lubber grasshopper (Romalea guttata). We hypothesized that above-ground herbivory stimulates ...
    • An HMM-Based Comparative Genomic Framework for Detecting Introgression in Eukaryotes 

      Liu, Kevin J.; Dai, Jingxuan; Truong, Kathy; Song, Ying; Kohn, Michael H.; Nakhleh, Luay (6/12/2014)
      One outcome of interspecific hybridization and subsequent effects of evolutionary forces is introgression, which is the integration of genetic material from one species into the genome of an individual in another species. ...
    • Insect seed predators as novel agents of selection on fruit color 

      Stanton, Maureen L; Whitney, Kenneth D (2004-08)
      The ecological and evolutionary dynamics of fruit color polymorphisms remain poorly known because patterns and agents of selection have rarely been identified. Here, we examine Acacia ligulata, a shrub of the Australian ...
    • Intraspecific priority effects and disease interact to alter population growth 

      Dibble, Christopher J.; Hall, Spencer R.; Rudolf, Volker H.W. (2014)
      Intraspecific variation may shape colonization of new habitat patches through a variety of mechanisms. In particular, trait variation among colonizing individuals can produce intraspecific priority effects (IPEs), where ...
    • Joint assembly and genetic mapping of the Atlantic horseshoe crab genome reveals ancient whole genome duplication 

      Nossa, Carlos W.; Havlak, Paul; Yue, Jia-Xing; Lv, Jie; Vincent, Kimberly Y.; Brockmann, H. Jane; Putnam, Nicholas H. (2014)
      Horseshoe crabs are marine arthropods with a fossil record extending back approximately 450 million years. They exhibit remarkable morphological stability over their long evolutionary history, retaining a number of ancestral ...
    • Linking phenological shifts to species interactions through size-mediated priority effects 

      Rasmussen, Nick L.; Van Allen, Benjamin G.; Rudolf, Volker H.W. (2014)
      Interannual variation in seasonal weather patterns causes shifts in the relative timing of phenological events of species within communities, but we currently lack a mechanistic understanding of how these phenological ...
    • Mitochondrial DNA Phylogeography of the Norway Rat 

      Song, Ying; Lan, Zhenjiang; Kohn, Michael H. (2014-02-28)
      Central Eastern Asia, foremost the area bordering northern China and Mongolia, has been thought to be the geographic region where Norway rats (Rattus norvegicus) have originated. However recent fossil analyses pointed to ...
    • Mutualistic interactions between Upiga virescens (Pyralidae), a pollinating seed-consumer, and Lophocereus schottii (Cactaceae) 

      Fleming, Theodore H.; Holland, J. Nathaniel (1999)
      Pollinating seed-consuming interactions are rare, but include fig–fig wasp and yucca–yucca moth interactions, both of which are thought to be coevolved. Conditions favoring such mutualisms are poorly known but likely ...
    • A new social gene in Dictyostelium discoideum, chtB 

      Santorelli, Lorenzo A.; Kuspa, Adam; Shaulsky, Gad; Queller, David C.; Strassmann, Joan E. (2013)
      Background: Competitive social interactions are ubiquitous in nature, but their genetic basis is difficult to determine. Much can be learned from single gene knockouts in a eukaryote microbe. The mutants can be competed ...
    • Niche Differentiation in the Dynamics of Host-Symbiont Interactions: Symbiont Prevalence as a Coexistence Problem 

      Miller, Tom E.X.; Rudgers, Jennifer A. (2014-04)
      Heritable symbioses can have important ecological effects and have triggered important evolutionary innovations. Current predictions for long-term symbiont prevalence are based on their fitness benefits and vertical ...
