Abstract

Harmful algal blooms have triggered evolutionary tolerance in many grazers, but whether immigration can alter evolutionary dynamics is unknown. Using experimental evolution, the impacts of immigration on evolutionary tolerance to toxic cyanobacteria were investigated in two cladoceran grazers, the...

Abstract

Microsporidia are intracellular eukaryotic parasites of animals, characterized by unusual morphological and genetic features. They can be divided in three main groups, the classical microsporidians presenting all the features of the phylum and two putative primitive groups, the chytridiopsids and...

Abstract

Animals are expected to select habitats that maximize their fitness over evolutionary time scales. Yet in human-modified landscapes, habitat selection might not always lead to increased fitness because animals undervalue high-quality resources that appear less attractive than those of lower...

Abstract

Trypanosomioisis is an economically significant disease affecting a wide range of animals in tropics and subtropics. Heat shock proteins (HSPs) play an important role in trypanosomes by altering parasite's physiology and adaptability as its life cycle alternates between the poikilothermic...

Abstract

Sexually reproducing organisms require males and females to find each other. Increased difficulty of females finding mates as male density declines is the most frequently reported mechanism of Allee effects in animals. Evolving more effective mate search may alleviate Allee effects, but may depend...

Abstract

There is growing interest in understanding the functional outcomes of species interactions in ecological networks. For many mutualistic networks, including pollination and seed dispersal networks, interactions are generally sampled by recording animal foraging visits to plants. However, these...

Abstract

Fructans are multifunctional fructose-based water soluble carbohydrates found in all biological kingdoms but not in animals. Most research has focused on plant and microbial fructans and has received a growing interest because of their practical applications. Nevertheless, the origin of fructan...

Abstract

Avoidance behaviours that reduce or prevent contact with pathogens and parasites have been observed in a range of species from invertebrates to humans (where the emotion of disgust is an adaptive disease avoidance system) and have been selected for throughout evolution; simply put animals that...

Abstract

DABB class protein contains one to two (Dimeric α+β barrel domains, DABB). DABB domain was first discovered at the Cterminus of fructose 1,6-bisphosphate aldolase from Hydrogenophilus thermoluteolus and in heat shock protein (Hsp90) and hydroxyproline glycoprotein (HRGP) from salt stressed Populus...
