Rapid destruction of forest habitats has led to the establishment of protected areas in formerly managed forests with the aim of restoring biodiversity. Conservation in spruce-dominated reserves is often contradicted by salvage logging after insect outbreaks. Here we study the community characteristics of wood decaying fungi in a high montane Norway Spruce(More)
Here we present a next generation sequencing approach for use in ecological studies which allows for individual level sample tracking through the use of hierarchically organised molecular identification tags. We demonstrate its utility on a sample data set examining levels of parasitism in a recently arrived invasive species in the UK and discuss further(More)
The family Opisthoproctidae (barreleyes) constitutes one of the most peculiar looking and unknown deep-sea fish groups in terms of taxonomy and specialized adaptations. All the species in the family are united by the possession of tubular eyes, with one distinct lineage exhibiting also drastic shortening of the body. Two new species of the mesopelagic(More)

We demonstrate its utility on a sample data set examining levels of parasitism in a recently 16 arrived invasive species in the UK and(More)
