Publication in the Ecological Indicators: new data on the functional significance of algae mats

Studies carried out by Marta Pikosz, Beata Messyasz and Maciej Gąbka (Department of Hydrobiology, AMU in Poznań) show growth patterns and distinct ecological niches of species that form mats of algae in freshwaters. Studies have shown spatial variability of densities and biophysical features of monospecies mats created by Cladophora glomerata. These results [...]

Publication in Molecular Ecology Resources: New generation sequencing makes it possible to characterize the immense diversity of co-amplifying immune genes in wild vertebrates

Characterisation of highly duplicated genes, such as those of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), remains a challenging task, yet these genes play a crucial role in coevolution of parasites with their hosts, and may affect the susceptibility of endangered species to disease. In a recent article in Molecular Ecology Resources (link) A. Sebastian, [...]
