Plague caused by Yersinia pestis is a zoonotic infection, i.e., it is maintained in wildlife by animal reservoirs and on occasion spills over into human populations, causing outbreaks of different…
Plastid DNA sequence data help to clarify phylogenetic relationships and reticulate evolution in Lycoris (Amaryllidaceae)
Comparing the phylogenetic results obtained using nuclear genomic data to those from the plastid genome, a much clearer picture of the role that hybridization and reticulation have played in the evolution of Lycoris is emerging.
Plague reservoir species throughout the world.
This work considers the recent taxonomic changes of the rodent species in known plague reservoirs and detail their distribution across the world, with a particular focus on those rodents considered to be keystone host species.
