MalAvi: a public database of malaria parasites and related haemosporidians in avian hosts based on mitochondrial cytochrome b lineages
TLDR
A unified database of avian blood parasites of the genera Plasmodium, Haemoproteus and Leucocytozoon identified by a partial region of their cytochrome b sequences is proposed, which uses a standardized nomenclature to remove synonymy, and concentrates all available information about each parasite in a public reference site.

Links between worlds: unraveling migratory connectivity
TLDR
New advances in satellite telemetry, genetic analyses and stable isotope chemistry are now making it possible to determine the population and geographical origin of individual birds, and the relevance of understanding migratory connectivity to ecological, evolutionary and conservation issues is considered. Expand
A NEW PCR ASSAY FOR SIMULTANEOUS STUDIES OF LEUCOCYTOZOON, PLASMODIUM, AND HAEMOPROTEUS FROM AVIAN BLOOD
TLDR
A new polymerase chain reaction (PCR) protocol is presented that enables simultaneous typing of species from the 3 most common avian blood parasite genera (Haemoproteus, Plasmodium, and Leucocytozoon) and provides an easy, rapid, and accurate method to separate and investigate these parasites within a blood sample. Expand
A New Nested Polymerase Chain Reaction Method Very Efficient in Detecting Plasmodium and Haemoproteus Infections From Avian Blood
TLDR
This study presents a new nested PCR approach, building on a previously published PCR method, which has significantly improved performance and is shown to be superior detection of Plasmodium spp. Expand
Cross‐species infection of blood parasites between resident and migratory songbirds in Africa
TLDR
The mix of areas of transmission in several branches of the phylogenetic tree suggests that transmission of haemosporidian parasites to songbirds has arisen repeatedly in Africa and Europe. Expand
Good genes, oxidative stress and condition–dependent sexual signals
The immune and the detoxication systems of animals are characterized by allelic polymorphisms, which underlie individual differences in ability to combat assaults from pathogens and toxic compounds.Expand
Ten years of AFLP in ecology and evolution: why so few animals?
TLDR
A review of research areas in the study of wild species of animals where the AFLP method should be a very valuable tool to help molecular ecologists to identify when AFLP is likely to be superior to other more established methods, such as microsatellites, SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) analyses and multigene DNA sequencing.

Severe inbreeding depression in a wild wolf Canis lupus population
TLDR
In a small, naturally restored, wild population of grey wolves in Scandinavia, founded in 1983, a pedigree for 24 of the 28 breeding pairs established in the period 1983–2002 is constructed, corresponding to 6.04 litter-size-reducing equivalents in this wolf population. Expand
Correlation between male song repertoire, extra-pair paternity and offspring survival in the great reed warbler
TLDR
It is demonstrated that female great reed warblers obtain EPFs from neighbouring males with larger song repertoires than their social mate, and the relative post-fledging survival of offspring was positively correlated with their genetical fathers' song repertoire size. Expand
Speciation in a ring
TLDR
This work reconstructs the pathway to speciation between two reproductively isolated forms of greenish warbler and shows how gradual divergence in a trait involved in mate choice leads to theformation of new species. Expand
