Multilocus test for nuclear introgression between Macaca mulatta and M fascicularis: Evidence for gene flow in macaques
Introgression due to hybridization is important for our understanding of species divergence. In this study, we analyze potential introgression between Macaca mulatta and M fascicularis using DNA sequences from 19 genes. ...
Conflict and cooperation in the tropical wasp, Parachartergus colobopterus, and the chimeric multicellular organism, Dictyostelium discoideum
Several transitions to higher levels of biological organization have punctuated the history of life. These transitions occur when cooperative alliances lead to the integration of non-identical partners into more complex ...
Context dependent species interaction outcomes in ant-plant protection mutualisms
We often study the outcomes of species interactions, whether they be predation, competition, or mutualism, at one site in a single year. However, we increasingly recognize that species interaction outcomes are not static, ...
An investigation of the allelopathic potential of Chinese tallow tree (Sapium sebiferum [L.] Roxb.)
Invasive species can cause significant changes to their introduced environments. A set of experiments was conducted to determine whether Sapium sebiferum exhibits allelopathic effects on neighboring plants in its introduced ...
Symbiosis lost: Imperfect vertical transmission of fungal endophytes in native grasses
Vertically transmitted symbionts associate with some of the most ecologically dominant species on Earth, and their fixation has led to major evolutionary transitions (e.g., mitochondria, chloroplasts). While transmission ...
