Abstract

Keystone species restoration, or the restoration of species whose effect on an ecosystem is much greater than their abundance would suggest, is a central justification for many wildlife reintroduction projects globally. Following restoration, plains bison (Bison bison L.) have been identified as a...

Abstract

Schistosomiasis is one of zoonoses (diseases that are naturally transmitted between vertebrate animals and human), and it is widespread in tropical and sub-tropical regions. It is one of the important infectious diseases that the World Health Organization plans to eliminate. Hybridization within...

Abstract

In order to study the effect of the season on the evolution of ewes' body weight (W) and body condition score (BCS) during their breeding cycle, 22 Ouled Djellal ewes, reared in an extensive system, have been managed in an accelerated lambing rate (3 lambing in 2 years). The combined weighing and...

Abstract

This special issue contain five broad topics which focus on deleterious mutations in the context of domestication; genomics of ancient samples and its important contribution to understanding domestication; introgression between wild and domestic populations; explores the demographic processes in...

Abstract

After domestication 11 000 years ago in Asia Minor, the goat followed human migration to Europe and Asia. It was then introduced in Africa and is now raised all over the world. In this study, we exploited a dataset composed of 54 000 SNPs (Illumina goat DNA chip) to analyze the genetic diversity of ...

Abstract

Toxoplasma gondii is an important protozoan pathogen that infects many wild and domestic animals and causes infections in immunocompromised humans. However, there has been little investigation of the molecular evolutionary trajectories of this pathogenic protozoa using comparative genomics data....

Abstract

Animal domestication was an important stage in the human history, which coincided with or probably even promoted the advent of a turning point at which part of the humankind switched from hunting and gathering to husbandry. The leading factor in evolutionary changes at the dawn of domestication was ...

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

The evolution of resistance to antibiotics is a major public health problem and an example of rapid adaptation under natural selection by antibiotics. The dynamics of antibiotic resistance within and between hosts can be understood in the light of mathematical models that describe the epidemiology...

Abstract

Phylogenetic analyses of foot-and-mouth disease type A viruses in the Middle East during 2015-2016 identified viruses belonging to the A/ASIA/G-VII lineage, which originated in the Indian subcontinent. Changes in a critical antigenic site within capsid viral protein 1 suggest possible evolutionary...
