The adaptive significance of insect gall morphology
Insect galls are dramatic examples of extended phenotypes: although composed of host plant tissues, their development is largely controlled by insect genes. Adaptive explanations for gall traitsExpand

The population biology of oak gall wasps (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae).
Oak gall wasps (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae, Cynipini) are characterized by possession of complex cyclically parthenogenetic life cycles and the ability to induce a wide diversity of highly complexExpand

Where is the UK's pollinator biodiversity? The importance of urban areas for flower-visiting insects
Insect pollinators provide a crucial ecosystem service, but are under threat. Urban areas could be important for pollinators, though their value relative to other habitats is poorly known. WeExpand

Pollination ecology of acacias (Fabaceae, Mimosoideae)
We review the pollination ecology of acacias worldwide, discussing (1) the rewards provided to flower visitors, (2) the temporal patterns of flowering and reward provision and (3) the taxonomicExpand

How aggressive ant-guards assist seed-set in Acacia flowers
The phenomenon of ant-guarding on Acacia trees is probably the best known case of a mutualism between plants and animals, the ants conferring biotic defence against herbivores and perhaps againstExpand

Differential var gene transcription in Plasmodium falciparum isolates from patients with cerebral malaria compared to hyperparasitaemia
The Plasmodium falciparum variant erythrocyte surface antigens known as PfEMP1, encoded by the var gene family, are thought to play a crucial role in malaria pathogenesis because they mediateExpand

Out of Anatolia: longitudinal gradients in genetic diversity support an eastern origin for a circum‐Mediterranean oak gallwasp Andricus quercustozae
Many studies have addressed the latitudinal gradients in intraspecific genetic diversity of European taxa generated during postglacial range expansion from southern refugia. Although Asia Minor isExpand
