Attractiveness of women's body odors over the menstrual cycle: the role of oral contraceptives and receiver sex
TLDR
The results indicate that men can use olfactory cues to distinguish between ovulating and nonovulating women, and the contrasting results between pill users and nonusers may indicate that oral contraceptives demolish the cyclic attractiveness of odors.
Maternal antibodies postpone hantavirus infection and enhance individual breeding success
TLDR
This work studied the influence of maternal antibodies against the zoonotic Puumala hantavirus (PUUV) on the fitness of bank voles (Clethrionomys glareolus) and on PUUV transmission by exposing young maternal antibody-positive and negative (MatAb−) bank Voles to PUUV in experimental populations.
Quantitative measure of sexual selection with respect to the operational sex ratio: a comparison of selection indices
TLDR
It is found that all the sexual selection indices show significant positive intercorrelations for both males and females, suggesting that Bateman's principles are an accurate and a valid measure of the mating system.
COST OF REPRODUCTION IN THE WILD: MANIPULATION OF REPRODUCTIVE EFFORT IN THE BANK VOLE
TLDR
Evidence is provided that, in the wild, females may be incapable of escaping the costs of reproduction and have been considered typical income breeders, in which potential reproductive costs may be masked.
Predation on artificial ground nests in relation to forest fragmentation, agricultural land and habitat structure
The impacts of forest fragmentation, agricultural land and habitat structure on depredation of artificial ground nests were studied in the cultivated area in central Finland and in the forest
Offspring Defence in Relation to Litter Size and Age: Experiment in the Bank vole Clethrionomys glareolus
TLDR
It is suggested that maternal aggression in female bank voles is related to the value as well as to the vulnerability of the offspring, supporting parental investment theory and conclusions drawn by earlier studies of birds.
The origin of two cryptic species of African desert jerboas (Dipodidae: Jaculus)
The desert biota is exposed to extreme and variable conditions that shape its evolution and diversification processes. In this respect, the Jaculus jerboas have gained the attention of researchers as
Testosterone‐Mediated Effects on Fitness‐Related Phenotypic Traits and Fitness
TLDR
Testing the effects of elevated T between two bank vole Myodes glareolus groups found Circulating T levels were found to be heritable; therefore, female bank voles would derive indirect genetic benefits via good genes from mating with males signaling dominance.
Endemic hantavirus infection impairs the winter survival of its rodent host.
TLDR
This work examines the effect of Puumala virus (PUUV) infection on the winter survival of bank voles (Myodes glareolus), the host of this virus, to provide the first evidence for a significant effect of PUUV on host survival.
