Underestimation of Species Richness in Neotropical Frogs Revealed by mtDNA Analyses
Background Amphibians are rapidly vanishing. At the same time, it is most likely that the number of amphibian species is highly underestimated. Recent DNA barcoding work has attempted to define aExpand

Interactive effects of habitat modification and species invasion on native species decline.
Different components of global environmental change are often studied and managed independently, but mounting evidence points towards complex non-additive interaction effects between drivers ofExpand

Are invasive species the drivers of ecological change?
Invasive species are widely accepted as one of the leading direct causes of biodiversity loss. However, much of the evidence for this contention is based on simple correlations between exoticExpand

Revealing the hidden complexities of mtDNA inheritance
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is a pivotal tool in molecular ecology, evolutionary and population genetics. The power of mtDNA analyses derives from a relatively high mutation rate and the apparentExpand

Mother's curse: the effect of mtDNA on individual fitness and population viability.
The mitochondrial genome is considered generally to be an innocent bystander in adaptive evolution; however, there is increasing evidence that mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is an important contributor toExpand

Comparative phylogeography of coastal limpets across a marine disjunction in New Zealand
Cook Strait, which separates the North and South Island of New Zealand, has been a transient, but re‐occurring feature of the New Zealand land mass throughout the Pleistocene, maintaining its currentExpand

Fast, cost-effective development of species-specific microsatellite markers by genomic sequencing.
Microsatellites are the genetic markers of choice for many population genetic studies, but must be isolated de novo using recombinant approaches where prior genetic data are lacking. Here we utilizedExpand

Gender Differences in Publication Output: Towards an Unbiased Metric of Research Performance
We examined the publication records of a cohort of 168 life scientists in the field of ecology and evolutionary biology to assess gender differences in research performance. Clear discrepancies inExpand

Interspecific microsatellite markers for the study of pinniped populations
Microsatellites have rapidly become the marker of choice for a wide variety of population genetic studies. Here we describe 20 pinniped microsatellite markers which have been tested across 18Expand
