Sequential divergence and the multiplicative origin of community diversity
Significance Understanding how new life forms originate is a central question in biology. Population divergence is usually studied with respect to how single lineages diverge into daughter taxa.Expand

DNA Barcodes and Targeted Sampling Methods Identify a New Species and Cryptic Patterns of Host Specialization Among North American Coptera (Hymenoptera: Diapriidae)
ABSTRACT Fewer than half of the 80–100 North American species in parasitoid genus Coptera Say (Hymenoptera: Diapriidae) have been described. Hosts are known for just nine of these. The taxonomy ofExpand

Histories of host shifts and cospeciation among free‐living parasitoids of Rhagoletis flies
Host shifts by specialist insects can lead to reproductive isolation between insect populations that use different hosts, promoting diversification. When both a phytophagous insect and itsExpand

Socio-Ecological Factors Associated with Dengue Risk and Aedes aegypti Presence in the Galápagos Islands, Ecuador
Dengue fever is an emerging infectious disease in the Galápagos Islands of Ecuador, with the first cases reported in 2002 and subsequent periodic outbreaks. We report results of a 2014 pilot studyExpand

Under-the-Radar Dengue Virus Infections in Natural Populations of Aedes aegypti Mosquitoes
Since 1999, dengue outbreaks in the continental United States involving local transmission have occurred only episodically and only in Florida and Texas. In Florida, these episodes appear to beExpand

Under-the-radar dengue virus infections in natural populations of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes
The incidence of locally acquired dengue infections increased during the last decade in the United States, compelling a sustained research effort on the dengue mosquito vector, Aedes aegypti, and itsExpand

Meek mothers with powerful daughters: effects of novel host environments and small trait differences on parasitoid competition
Outcomes of competition may depend both on subtle differences in traits relevant to fitness and on how those traits are expressed in the context of the environment. Environmental effects on traitsExpand
