Publication in Behavioral Ecology on adaptations to urban conditions in a Crocidura species

The prestigious Behavioral Ecology has just published an article (online for now) by Leszek Rychlik and colleagues from Portugal (University of Lisbon) on the differences in metabolism and behavior of greater white-toothed shrews (Crocidura russula) from urban and rural populations. Wild-trapped shrews were brought to lab where their RMR, boldness, and exploration rate were measured. [...]

A paper on shrews in Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology

Recently, an article about the causes of behavioral differentiation among shrews, by Leszek Rychlik and co-authors from Portugal (University of Lisbon) and Germany (University of Munich), appeared, in its final form, in Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology. Comparing the behavior in five species of shrews from several locations in Europe, the authors tested if fast-lived species [...]

Publication in Molecular Ecology

Genomic analyses reveal adaptive evolution of the fish ectoparasite, Gyrodactylus bullatarudis that is shaped by the combination of gene duplications, divergence and recombination. In a paper by Konczal et al. published in Molecular Ecology, we describe reference genome of /G. bullatarudis/ the authors compare it with other Platyhelminthes. Results suggest that duplications in several gene [...]

Advances in the Evolutionary Understanding of MHC Polymorphism

Jacek Radwan (Evolutionary Biology Group) and colleagues have published a paper in Trends in Genetics  in which they review evolutionary mechanisms explaining landmark features of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) genes, including their extreme polymorphism, and identify open questions in MHC evolution research. Open access!

New article in Nature Plants authored by Michał Bogdziewicz

The impacts of climate change on forests can be dramatic but can also play out via more subtle interactions between different species. A new study published in Nature Plants demonstrates how the overall effect of climate change on tree reproduction depends on complex interactions between climate, the trees, and the insects that eat their seeds.
