The evolutionary ecology of the Lygaeidae
(2014-06) - Journal item,
The Lygaeidae (sensu lato) are a highly successful family of true bugs found worldwide, yet many aspects of their ecology and evolution remain obscure or unknown. While a few species have attracted considerable attention ...
Beyond sex allocation : the role of mating systems in sexual selection in parasitoid wasps
(2015-05) - Journal item,
Despite the diverse array of mating systems and life histories which characterise the parasitic Hymenoptera, sexual selection and sexual conflict in this taxon have been somewhat overlooked. For instance, parasitoid mating ...
Effects of salmon lice Lepeophtheirus salmonis on wild sea trout Salmo trutta – a literature review
(2015-08-20) - Journal item,
Salmon farming increases the abundance of salmon lice, which are ectoparasites of salmonids in the sea. Here we review the current knowledge on the effects of salmon lice on wild sea trout. Salmon lice feed on host mucus, ...

Extinction is imminent for Mexico’s endemic porpoise unless fishery bycatch is eliminated
(2017-10-12) - Journal item,
The number of Mexico’s endemic porpoise, the vaquita (Phocoena sinus), is collapsing primarily due to bycatch in illegal gillnets set for totoaba (Totoaba macdonaldi), an endangered fish whose swim bladders are exported ...
Marine mammals and sonar : dose-response studies, the risk-disturbance hypothesis and the role of exposure context
(2018-01) - Journal item,
1. Marine mammals may be negatively affected by anthropogenic noise. Behavioural response studies (BRSs) aim to establish a relationship between the exposure dose of a stressor and associated behavioural responses of ...
Tunicates push the limits of animal evo-devo
(2011-01-20) - Journal item,
The phylum to which humans belong, Chordata, takes its name from one of the major shared derived features of the group, the notochord. All chordates have a notochord, at least during embryogenesis, and there is little doubt ...
The coevolution of virulence : tolerance in perspective
(2010-09) - Journal item,
Coevolutionary interactions, such as those between host and parasite, predator and prey, or plant and pollinator, evolve subject to the genes of both interactors. It is clear, for example, that the evolution of pollination ...
