Ecosystem recovery after climatic extremes enhanced by genotypic diversity.
Contemporary climate change is characterized both by increasing mean temperature and increasing climate variability such as heat waves, storms, and floods. How populations and communities cope withExpand

Multiple parasites are driving major histocompatibility complex polymorphism in the wild
Abstract Parasite mediated selection may result in arms races between host defence and parasite virulence. In particular, simultaneous infections from multiple parasite species should causeExpand

Female sticklebacks count alleles in a strategy of sexual selection explaining MHC polymorphism
The origin and maintenance of polymorphism in major histocompatibility complex (MHC) genes in natural populations is still unresolved. Sexual selection, frequency-dependent selection by parasites andExpand

North Atlantic phylogeography and large‐scale population differentiation of the seagrass Zostera marina L.
As the most widespread seagrass in temperate waters of the Northern Hemisphere, Zostera marina provides a unique opportunity to investigate the extent to which the historical legacy of the lastExpand

Mate choice decisions of stickleback females predictably modified by MHC peptide ligands.
Sexual selection has been proposed as one mechanism to explain the maintenance of high allelic diversity in MHC genes that control the extent of resistance against pathogens and parasites in naturalExpand

Rapid genetic divergence in postglacial populations of threespine stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus): the role of habitat type, drainage and geographical proximity
The goal of this study was to evaluate the role of common ancestry, and of geographical or reproductive isolation, in genetic divergence in populations of threespine sticklebacks (GasterosteusExpand

Adaptive evolution of a key phytoplankton species to ocean acidification
Oc ean acidification, the drop in seawater pH associated with the ongoing enrichment of marine waters with carbon dioxide from fossil fuel burning, may seriously impair marine calcifying organisms.Expand

Microsatellites reveal origin and genetic diversity of Eurasian invasions by one of the world’s most notorious marine invader, Mnemiopsis leidyi (Ctenophora)
Marine invasions are taking place at an increasing rate. When occurring in blooms, zooplanktivorous comb jellies of the genus Mnemiopsis are able to cause pelagic regime shifts in coastal areas andExpand

Severe tissue damage in Atlantic cod larvae under increasing ocean acidification
Ocean acidification, caused by increasing atmospheric concentrations of CO2 (refs 1, 2, 3), is one of the most critical anthropogenicthreats to marine life. Changes in seawater carbonate chemistryExpand

A microsatellite‐based estimation of clonal diversity and population subdivision in Zostera marina, a marine flowering plant
We examined the genetic population structure in eelgrass (Zostera marina L.), the dominant seagrass species of the northern hemisphere, over spatial scales from 12 km to 10 000 km using theExpand
