Environmental and ecological factors that shape the gut bacterial communities of fish: a meta‐analysis
Symbiotic bacteria often help their hosts acquire nutrients from their diet, showing trends of co‐evolution and independent acquisition by hosts from the same trophic levels. While these trends hintExpand

Highly similar microbial communities are shared among related and trophically similar ant species
Ants dominate many terrestrial ecosystems, yet we know little about their nutritional physiology and ecology. While traditionally viewed as predators and scavengers, recent isotopic studies revealedExpand

Divergence across diet, time and populations rules out parallel evolution in the gut microbiomes of Trinidadian guppies
Diverse microbial consortia profoundly influence animal biology, necessitating an understanding of microbiome variation in studies of animal adaptation. Yet, little is known about such variabilityExpand

Toward an integration of evolutionary biology and ecosystem science.
At present, the disciplines of evolutionary biology and ecosystem science are weakly integrated. As a result, we have a poor understanding of how the ecological and evolutionary processes thatExpand

Experimental Evidence of an Eco-evolutionary Feedback during Adaptive Divergence
Differences in how organisms modify their environment can evolve rapidly and might influence adaptive population divergence. In a common garden experiment in aquatic mesocosms, we found that adultExpand

Changes in digestive traits and body nutritional composition accommodate a trophic niche shift in Trinidadian guppies
A trophic niche shift can occur as an adaptive response to environmental change such as altered resource quality, abundance or composition. Alterations in digestive traits such as gut morphology andExpand

The microbiota of diapause: How host–microbe associations are formed after dormancy in an aquatic crustacean
A critical question in symbiosis research is where and how organisms obtain beneficial microbial symbionts in different ecological contexts. Microbiota of juveniles are often derived directly fromExpand

The effect of top‐predator presence and phenotype on aquatic microbial communities
Abstract The presence of predators can impact a variety of organisms within the ecosystem, including microorganisms. Because the effects of fish predators and their phenotypic differences onExpand
