Vesiclepedia: A Compendium for Extracellular Vesicles with Continuous Community Annotation
Vesiclepedia is a community-annotated compendium of molecular data on extracellular vesicles.
Rapid Evolution of Enormous, Multichromosomal Genomes in Flowering Plant Mitochondria with Exceptionally High Mutation Rates
A pair of species within the genus Silene have evolved the largest known mitochondrial genomes, coinciding with extreme changes in mutation rate, recombination activity, and genome structure.
History, chance and adaptation during biological invasion: separating stochastic phenotypic evolution from response to selection.
Introduced species often exhibit changes in genetic variation, population structure, selection regime and phenotypic traits as they colonize and expand into new ranges. For these reasons, species… Expand
Inheritance and recombination of mitochondrial genomes in plants, fungi and animals.
It is generally assumed that mitochondrial genomes are uniparentally transmitted, homoplasmic and nonrecombining. However, these assumptions draw largely from early studies on animal mitochondrial… Expand
Local Population Structure And Sex Ratio: Evolution in Gynodioecious Plants
Although the influence of population structure on evolution has been explored previously in a variety of theoretical studies, there are few examples of specific traits whose fitness is likely to be… Expand
On the relationship between r/K selection and environmental carrying capacity: a new habitat templet for plant life history strategies.
We propose a revision of the habitat templet approach for modelling the relationship between r/K selection and selection related to the level of resource impoverishment within vegetation. The latter… Expand

Abstract Pleistocene glaciations were important determinants of historical migration and, hence, current levels of genetic diversity within and among populations. In many cases, these historical… Expand

Sexual reproduction is both extremely costly and widespread relative to asexual reproduction, meaning that it must also confer profound advantages in order to persist. One theorized benefit of sex is… Expand
Common Features of Segregation Distortion in Plants and Animals
Segregation distortion is increasingly recognized as a potentially powerful evolutionary force. This runs counter to the perception that non-Mendelian genes are rare genetic curiosities, a view that… Expand
HISTORICAL RANGE EXPANSION DETERMINES THE PHYLOGENETIC DIVERSITY INTRODUCED DURING CONTEMPORARY SPECIES INVASION
Abstract For a species rapidly expanding its geographic range, such as during biological invasion, most alleles in the introduced range will have their evolutionary origins in the native range. Yet,… Expand
