Sexual selection protects against extinction
Reproduction through sex carries substantial costs, mainly because only half of sexual adults produce offspring. It has been theorized that these costs could be countered if sex allows sexualExpand
Molecular characterization of trophic ecology within an island radiation of insect herbivores (Curculionidae: Entiminae: Cratopus)
The phytophagous beetle family Curculionidae is the most species‐rich insect family known, with much of this diversity having been attributed to both co‐evolution with food plants and host shifts atExpand
Merging DNA metabarcoding and ecological network analysis to understand and build resilient terrestrial ecosystems
Summary 1. Significant advances in both mathematical and molecular approaches in ecology offer unprecedented opportunities to describe and understand ecosystem functioning. Ecological networksExpand
Detecting host–parasitoid interactions in an invasive Lepidopteran using nested tagging DNA metabarcoding
Determining the host–parasitoid interactions and parasitism rates for invasive species entering novel environments is an important first step in assessing potential routes for biocontrol andExpand
Construction, validation and application of nocturnal pollen transport networks in an agro-ecosystem: a comparison using microscopy and DNA metabarcoding
Moths are globally relevant as pollinators but nocturnal pollination remains poorly understood. Plant-pollinator interaction networks are traditionally constructed using either flower-visitorExpand
Biomonitoring for the 21st Century: Integrating Next-Generation Sequencing Into Ecological Network Analysis
TLDR
Ecological network analysis provides a mechanistic framework for describing complex species interactions, quantifying ecosystem services, and examining the impacts of environmental change on ecosystems. Expand
Construction, validation, and application of nocturnal pollen transport networks in an agro‐ecosystem: a comparison using light microscopy and DNA metabarcoding
1. Moths are globally relevant as pollinators but nocturnal pollination remains poorly understood. Plant–pollinator interaction networks are traditionally constructed using either flower‐visitorExpand
Community assembly and diversification in a species-rich radiation of island weevils (Coleoptera: Cratopini)
Fieldwork and laboratory work were supported by funding from the ANR, France (ANR‐2006‐BDIV002), and a NERC‐funded PhD studentship to JJNK.
Nested metabarcode tagging: a robust tool for studying species interactions in ecology and evolution
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 molecularExpand
