Publication in Ecology

One widely accepted fitness advantage of being a masting plant (instead of just producing seeds every year) is the predator satiation. According to this mechanism, masting helps to increase seed survival through starving predators in non-mast years (famine cause the predator population to go decrease in numbers), and sparse predators are easy satiated in mast [...]

Publication in Scientific Reports authored by members of our Institute: T-cell receptor (TCR) repertoire profiling in non-model species using high-throughput sequencing

High-throughput sequencing (HTS) prompted development of novel, refined methods of analyzing immunological repertoires (e.g. immunoglobulins, TCRs). So far, despite a decade of progress, these techniques were mainly used in research involving model species and humans. Recently, Magdalena Migalska, Alvaro Sebastian and Jacek Radwan (Evolutionary Biology Group) published an article in Scientific Reports describing first use of HTS in TCR repertoire sequencing [...]

Publication in Journal of Ecology

New study describing how apparent predation occurring between two sympatric oaks influence their recruitment rates was just published in Journal of Ecology. The Authors (Michał Bogdziewicz, Nathanael Lichti, Rafał Zwolak) wrote a short summary of their work: Numerous plants are dispersed by scatterhoarding animals such as corvids and rodents. These animals carry away and cache [...]
