Experimental Evolution on a Wild Mammal Species Results in Modifications of Gut Microbial Communities

Comparative studies have shown that diet, life history, and phylogeny interact to determine microbial community structure across mammalian hosts. However, these studies are often confounded by numerous factors. Selection experiments offer unique opportunities to validate conclusions and test hypotheses generated by comparative studies. We used a replicated… CONTINUE READING
