Mechanisms of polymyxin resistance: acquired and intrinsic resistance in bacteria
Polymyxins are polycationic antimicrobial peptides that are currently the last-resort antibiotics for the treatment of multidrug-resistant, Gram-negative bacterial infections. The reintroduction ofExpand

Comparative performance of species richness estimation methods.
In most real-world contexts the sampling effort needed to attain an accurate estimate of total species richness is excessive. Therefore, methods to estimate total species richness from incompleteExpand

Revisiting the taxonomy of the Rattini tribe: a phylogeny-based delimitation of species boundaries
BackgroundRodents are recognized as hosts for at least 60 zoonotic diseases and may represent a serious threat for human health. In the context of global environmental changes and increasing mobilityExpand

Worldwide emergence of colistin resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae from healthy humans and patients in Lao PDR, Thailand, Israel, Nigeria and France owing to inactivation of the PhoP/PhoQ regulator
The emergence of colistin-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP) is a major public health concern worldwide. In this study, the prevalence and molecular basis of colistin resistance in CRKP isolatedExpand

QUANTIFYING PHYLOGENETICALLY STRUCTURED ENVIRONMENTAL VARIATION
Abstract Comparative analysis methods control for the variation linked to phylogeny before attempting to correlate the remaining variation of a trait to present-day conditions (i.e., ecology and/orExpand

The Diversity of Parasites
Parasitism is one of the most successful modes of life displayed by living organisms, as measured by how often it evolved and how many parasitic species are presently in existence. Studying theExpand

Are there general laws in parasite community ecology ? : the emergence of spatial parasitology and epidemiology
There is an increasing interest in parasite and infectious disease population (Grenfell and Dobson 1995; Hudson et al. 2001) and community (Esch et al. 1990; Poulin 1998a; Rohde 2001) ecology, andExpand

A parasite reveals cryptic phylogeographic history of its host
This study compares the continental phylogeographic patterns of two wild European species linked by a host–parasite relationship: the field mouse Apodemus sylvaticus and one of its specificExpand

Sex-biased parasitism, seasonality and sexual size dimorphism in desert rodents
We investigated seasonality of gender differences in the patterns of flea infestation in nine rodent species to test if sex-biased parasitism in terms of mean abundance, species richness, prevalenceExpand
