ENMTools: a toolbox for comparative studies of environmental niche models
We present software that facilitates quantitative comparisons of environmental niche models (ENMs). Our software quantifies similarity of ENMs generated using the program Maxent and usesExpand

Environmental Niche Equivalency versus Conservatism: Quantitative Approaches to Niche Evolution
Abstract Environmental niche models, which are generated by combining species occurrence data with environmental GIS data layers, are increasingly used to answer fundamental questions about nicheExpand

Evolution and the latitudinal diversity gradient: speciation, extinction and biogeography.
A latitudinal gradient in biodiversity has existed since before the time of the dinosaurs, yet how and why this gradient arose remains unresolved. Here we review two major hypotheses for the originExpand

Most quantitative traits in most populations exhibit heritable genetic variation. Lande proposed that high levels of heritable variation may be maintained by mutation in the face of stabilizingExpand

In many insect species, males infected with microbes related to Wolbachia pipientis are “incompatible” with uninfected females. Crosses between infected males and uninfected females produceExpand

Successful establishment of Wolbachia in Aedes populations to suppress dengue transmission
Genetic manipulations of insect populations for pest control have been advocated for some time, but there are few cases where manipulated individuals have been released in the field and no casesExpand

Theory and speciation.
The study of speciation has become one of the most active areas of evolutionary biology, and substantial progress has been made in documenting and understanding phenomena ranging from sympatricExpand

Factors affecting the distribution of cytoplasmic incompatibility in Drosophila simulans.
In Drosophila simulans a Wolbachia-like microorganism is responsible for reduced egg-hatch when infected males mate with uninfected females. Both incompatibility types have previously been found inExpand

Cytoplasmic incompatibility in Drosophila simulans: dynamics and parameter estimates from natural populations.
In Drosophila simulans, cytoplasmically transmitted Wolbachia microbes cause reduced egg hatch when infected males mate with uninfected females. A Wolbachia infection and an associated mtDNA variantExpand

Asymmetric Postmating Isolation: Darwin's Corollary to Haldane's Rule
Asymmetric postmating isolation, where reciprocal interspecific crosses produce different levels of fertilization success or hybrid sterility/inviability, is very common. Darwin emphasized itsExpand
