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 ...
Understanding belowground community regulation in an invaded forest
Soil organisms have the potential to strongly influence plant species performance and survival and are in turn influenced by interactions with plants. These interactions can cause changes in the soil biota that influence ...
A test of captive breeding strategies using the housefly, Musca domestica as a model system
Inbreeding depression in small isolated populations is a major concern in conservation breeding research. While outbreeding can relieve the symptoms of inbreeding depression in small populations, outbred populations can ...
