ezRAD: a simplified method for genomic genotyping in non-model organisms
The simplicity of ezRAD makes it particularly useful for the discovery of single nucleotide polymorphisms and targeted amplicon sequencing in natural populations of non-model organisms that have been historically understudied because of lack of genomic information.
Observations on the Reproductive Behavior of a Neotropical Glassfrog, Hyalinobatrachium fleischmanni (Anura: Centrolenidae)
In regions where H. fleischmanni and T. cirrhosus co-occur, both calling males and egg masses were more frequently found on ‘less exposed’ lower surfaces of leaves, where risk of attack from aerial predators may be reduced.
Prey-size plastics are invading larval fish nurseries
It is demonstrated that surface slicks, meandering lines of convergence on the ocean surface, are important larval fish nurseries that disproportionately accumulate nonnutritious, toxin-laden prey-size plastics.
Microsatellites for Next-Generation Ecologists: A Post-Sequencing Bioinformatics Pipeline
This method emphasizes the importance of sequence quality, and avoids loci associated with repetitive elements by screening with repetitive sequence databases available for a growing number of taxa by screening microsatellite loci via bioinformatic analyses prior to primer design.
Surface slicks are pelagic nurseries for diverse ocean fauna
Evidence is provided that surface slicks, a common coastal convergence feature, provide nursery habitat for diverse marine larvae, including 100 species of commercially and ecologically important fishes, and that slicks play a critically important role in enhancing productivity in tropical marine ecosystems.
Amphibia, Plethodontidae, Pseudoeurycea maxima: Distribution extension.
Since the pioneering work of Dunn (1926), there have been numerous contributions to our understanding of the biodiversity, geography, and evolution of Neotropical salamanders of the Tribe
Flickers of speciation: Sympatric colour morphs of the arc‐eye hawkfish, Paracirrhites arcatus, reveal key elements of divergence with gene flow
The genetic results indicate an ecological barrier to gene flow initiated by habitat selection and enhanced by assortative mating in the arc‐eye hawkfish fulfil theoretical expectations for the earliest phase of speciation with gene flow.
