Sequencing our way towards understanding global eukaryotic biodiversity.
Microscopic eukaryotes are abundant, diverse and fill critical ecological roles across every ecosystem on Earth, yet there is a well-recognized gap in understanding of their global biodiversity.Expand
Environmental DNA for wildlife biology and biodiversity monitoring.
Extraction and identification of DNA from an environmental sample has proven noteworthy recently in detecting and monitoring not only common species, but also those that are endangered, invasive, orExpand
A communal catalogue reveals Earth’s multiscale microbial diversity
Our growing awareness of the microbial world’s importance and diversity contrasts starkly with our limited understanding of its fundamental structure. Despite recent advances in DNA sequencing, aExpand
Ultrasequencing of the meiofaunal biosphere: practice, pitfalls and promises
Biodiversity assessment is the key to understanding the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, but there is a well‐acknowledged biodiversity identification gap related toExpand
Environmental DNA metabarcoding: Transforming how we survey animal and plant communities
The genomic revolution has fundamentally changed how we survey biodiversity on earth. High‐throughput sequencing (“HTS”) platforms now enable the rapid sequencing of DNA from diverse kinds ofExpand
Second-generation environmental sequencing unmasks marine metazoan biodiversity
Biodiversity is of crucial importance for ecosystem functioning, sustainability and resilience, but the magnitude and organization of marine diversity at a range of spatial and taxonomic scales areExpand
Systematic and Evolutionary Insights Derived from mtDNA COI Barcode Diversity in the Decapoda (Crustacea: Malacostraca)
Background Decapods are the most recognizable of all crustaceans and comprise a dominant group of benthic invertebrates of the continental shelf and slope, including many species of economicExpand
The biogeography of the atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) gut microbiome
Although understood in many vertebrate systems, the natural diversity of host-associated microbiota has been little studied in teleosts. For migratory fishes, successful exploitation of multipleExpand
Competition and phylogeny determine community structure in Müllerian co-mimics
Until recently, the study of negative and antagonistic interactions (for example, competition and predation) has dominated our understanding of community structure, maintenance and assembly.Expand
Experimental harvesting of fish populations drives genetically based shifts in body size and maturation
Size-selective harvesting in commercial fisheries can induce rapid changes in biological traits. While experimental and wild harvested populations often exhibit clear shifts in body size andExpand
