Abstract

Parasitic protozoan parasites have evolved many co-evolutionary paths towards stable transmission to their host population. Plasmodium spp., the causative agents of malaria, and related haemosporidian parasites are dipteran-borne eukaryotic pathogens that actively invade and use vertebrate...

AbstractFull Text

Genome reassortment and recombination mutations have been speculated to occur in infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) and contribute to the emergence of new strains. However, evidence was lacking until recently when natural reassortant viruses were detected in China and Zambia. In this study,...

Abstract

Background: During the evolutionary history of transposable elements, some processes, such as ancestral polymorphisms and horizontal transfer of sequences between species, can produce incongruences in phylogenies. We investigated the evolutionary history of the transposable elements Bari and 412 in ...

Abstract

Grazing and fire are disturbances integral to the evolution and maintenance of savanna grasslands. Humans are altering or completely eliminating these disturbance regimes at a global scale, with important consequences for savanna ecosystem structure and function. It is unknown whether the...

Abstract

PstDV1 has caused losses to the shrimp farming industry that resulted in millions of dollars worldwide. In Venezuela, it was not until 1985 when it was reported as being introduced in farmed Litopenaeus vannamei and since then its presence has been confirmed in those populations. The analysis of...

Abstract

Patterns of morphological disparity yield important insight into the causes of diversification and adaptive radiation in East African cichlids. However, comparisons of cichlid disparity have often failed to consider the effects that differing clade ages or stochasticity may have on disparity before ...

Abstract

The recent discovery of genetically distinct hantaviruses in multiple species of shrews and moles prompted a further exploration of their host diversification by analyzing frozen, ethanol-fixed and RNAlater®-preserved archival tissues and fecal samples from 533 bats (representing seven families, 28 ...
