      Rees, David John; Glenner, Henrik (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-07-29)
      The rhizocephalan barnacle, Sacculina carcini, is a common parasite of the European shore crab, Carcinus maenas, in which it causes significant detrimental physical and behavioral modifications. In the vast majority of ...

V.; Borges, Sérgio H.; Boutin, Celine; Henden, John-André; Måren, Inger Elisabeth; Sheil, Douglas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-01)
      The PREDICTS project—Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems (www.predicts.org.uk)—has collated from published studies a large, reasonably representative database of comparable samples ...
    • Duration of the parasitic phase determines subsequent performance in juvenile freshwater pearl mussels (Margaritifera margaritifera) 

      Marwaha, Janhavi; Jensen, Knut Helge; Jakobsen, Per Johan; Geist, Jürgen (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-03)
      Host–parasite systems have been useful in understanding coevolutionary patterns in sympatric species. Based on the exceptional interaction of the long‐lived and highly host‐specific freshwater pearl mussel (FPM; Margaritifera ...
    • Enhancing pollination is more effective than increased conventional agriculture inputs for improving watermelon yields 

      Sawe, Thomas; Eldegard, Katrine; Totland, Ørjan; Macrice, Samora; Nielsen, Anders (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Agricultural practices to improve yields in small‐scale farms in Africa usually focus on improving growing conditions for the crops by applying fertilizers, irrigation, and/or pesticides. This may, however, have limited ...
    • Evolutionary effects of fishing gear on foraging behavior and life-history traits 

      Claireaux, Marion; Jørgensen, Christian; Enberg, Katja (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-11)
      Fishing gears are designed to exploit the natural behaviors of fish, and the concern that fishing may cause evolution of behavioral traits has been receiving increasing attention. The first intuitive expectation is that ...
    • Parapatric subspecies of Macaca assamensis show a marginal overlap in their predicted potential distribution: Some elaborations for modern conservation management 

      Suwal, Madan Krishna; Huettmann, Falk; Regmi, Ganga Ram; Vetaas, Ole Reidar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-09-04)
      Phylogenetic niche conservatism implies that sister taxa will have similar niches, although the niches of disjunct subspecies may evolve differently. This study uses Macaca assamensis, subspecies assamensis and pelops, to ...
    • Parthenogenetic vs. sexual reproduction in oribatid mite communities 

      Maraun, Mark; Caruso, Tancredi; Hense, Jonathan; Lehmitz, Ricarda; Mumladze, Levan; Murvanidze, Maka; Nae, Ioana; Schulz, Julia; Seniczak, Anna Beata; Scheu, Stefan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The dominance of sex in Metazoa is enigmatic. Sexual species allocate resources to the production of males, while potentially facing negative effects such as the loss of well‐adapted genotypes due to recombination, and ...
    • Quantitative and qualitative consequences of reduced pollen loads in a mixed-mating plant 

      Hildesheim, Laura; Opedal, Øystein Hjorthol; Armbruster, Scott; Pelabon, Christophe (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-12)
      Greater pollination intensity can enhance maternal plant fitness by increasing seed set and seed quality as a result of more intense pollen competition or enhanced genetic sampling. We tested experimentally these effects ...
    • Timing is everything: Fishing-season placement may represent the most important angling-induced evolutionary pressure on Atlantic salmon populations 

      Harvey, Alison C.; Tang, Yongkai; Wennevik, Vidar; Skaala, Øystein; Glover, Kevin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      Fisheries-induced evolution can change the trajectory of wild fish populations by selectively targeting certain phenotypes. For important fish species like Atlantic salmon, this could have large implications for their ...
