We present the first genome-wide study of recent evolution in Culex pipiens species complex focusing on the genomic extent, functional targets and likely causes of global and local adaptations. We resequenced pooled samples of six populations of C. pipiens and two populations of the outgroup Culex torrentium. We used principal component analysis to(More)
BACKGROUND The world is rapidly urbanizing, and only a subset of species are able to succeed in stressful city environments. Efficient genome-enabled stress response appears to be a likely prerequisite for urban adaptation. Despite the important role ants play in the ecosytem, only the genomes of ~13 have been sequenced so far. Here, we present the draft(More)
Accumulation of various types of lesions in the course of aging increases an organism’s vulnerability and results in a monotonous elevation of mortality rate, irrespective of the position of a species on the evolutionary tree. Stroustrup et al. (Nature, 530, 103–107) [1] showed in 2016 that in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, longevity-altering factors(More)
Movements of pollinators in generalized plant-pollinator systems were investigated. Some species of insects, unlike the majority of the species studied, are shown to prefer areas with sparse plant cover. Thus, the composition of pollinators depends on the density of plant patches and can vary even within a distance of several meters. Within large plant(More)
