BMC Ecology and Evolution blogs
Feiko Miedema tells us the story behind his paper using fossil evidence to investigate the evolution of ichthyosaur birth positions.
Using metabolic reactions, Daniel Garza and colleagues introduce a sampling approach that disentangles the drivers of pan-genome evolution and provides a mechanistic interpretation for gene frequencies.
Eleanor Hay tells us the story behind her paper exploring geographic range size and speciation in honeyeaters.
Jordon Mallon tells us how a team of trans-Pacific palaeontologists came together during the COVID-19 pandemic to remotely work on describing exciting new Hadrosauroid dinosaur eggs and embryos from China.
Understanding how species respond to climate change is critical for their conservation. Buckley and colleagues use genomic and environmental data of two threatened freshwater fishes to show how complex intraspecific patterns of genetic diversity might shape species responses.
Monitor lizards vary greatly in size and habitat preferences, both among species and between babies and adults of the same species. Pavón-Vázquez and colleagues use this diversity to study how size-imposed constraints and ecological features influence the evolution of growth patterns.
In the face of global change, monitoring changes in biodiversity is essential. Johnson and colleagues explore the use of airborne environmental DNA to monitor whole plant communities.
Ip and colleagues explore the use of environmental DNA to detect threatened and elusive shark and ray species in sedimented urban reef environments.
