  • Evolutionary history of Podarcis tiliguerta on Corsica and Sardinia. [Journal Article]
  • BEBMC Evol Biol 2017 Jan 19; 17(1):27
  • Rodríguez V, Buades JM, … Ramon MM
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results support the evolutionary distinctiveness of Corsican and Sardinian populations and also indicate a lack of post-divergence migration despite periods of contact being possible. Further to this, species delimitation analyses of Corsican and Sardinian lineages provided statistical support for their recognition as distinct (sister) taxa. Our results provide new insights into the biogeography of the Mediterranean biodiversity hotspot, and contribute important findings relevant to the systematics and evolution of this speciose lizard genus.
  • Widespread introgression in deep-sea hydrothermal vent mussels. [Journal Article]
  • BEBMC Evol Biol 2017 Jan 13; 17(1):13
  • Breusing C, Vrijenhoek RC, Reusch TB
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our analyses indicate that B. azoricus and B. puteoserpentis hybridize introgressively across a large geographic area without evidence for general hybrid incompatibilities. While these findings shed new light onto the genetic structure of this hybrid zone, many aspects about its nature still remain obscure. Our study sets a baseline for further research that should primarily focus on the acquisition of additional mussel samples and environmental data, a detailed exploration of vent areas and hidden populations as well as genomic analyses in both mussel hosts and their bacterial symbionts.
  • Quantifying predictors for the spatial diffusion of avian influenza virus in China. [Journal Article]
  • BEBMC Evol Biol 2017 Jan 13; 17(1):16
  • Lu L, Leigh Brown AJ, Lycett SJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results highlighted that the economic-agricultural predictors, especially the poultry population density and the number of farm product markets, are the key determinants of spatial diffusion of AIV in China; high human density and freight transportation are also important predictors of high rates of viral transmission; Climate features (e.g. temperature) were correlated to the viral invasion in the destination to some degree; while little or no impacts were found from natural environment factors (such as surface water coverage). This study uncovers the risk factors and enhances our understanding of the spatial dynamics of AIV in bird populations.
