Development and characterization of 13 new, and cross amplification of 3, polymorphic nuclear microsatellite loci in the common myna (Acridotheres tristis).
We used a next generation sequencing (NGS) approach to screen for genome-wide nuclear microsatellite loci in the common (Indian) myna, Acridotheres tristis. In addition, markers previously developed for other Sturnidae ...
Spatial sorting drives morphological variation in the invasive brid, Acridotheris tristis.
The speed of range expansion in many invasive species is often accelerating because individuals with stronger dispersal abilities are more likely to be found at the range front. This ‘spatial sorting’ of strong dispersers ...
Challenging species delimitation in Collembola: Cryptic diversity among common springtails unveiled by DNA barcoding
Collembola is one of the major functional groups in soil as well as a model taxon in numerous disciplines. Therefore the accurate identification of specimens is critical, but could be jeopardised by cases of cryptic ...
Phylogeography of a mite, Halozetes fulvus, reflects the landscape history of a young volcanic island in the sub-Antarctic
(Linnean Society of London, 2012)
Previous studies of the microarthropods of Marion Island, Southern Ocean, documented high mitochondrial COI (cytochrome c oxidase subunit I) haplotype diversity and significant genetic structure, which were ascribed ...
Plant dispersal in the sub-Antarctic inferred from anisotropic genetic structure
(Blackwell Publishing, 2012)
Climatic conditions and landscape features often strongly affect species’ local distribution patterns, dispersal, reproduction and survival and may therefore have considerable impacts on species’ fine-scale spatial genetic ...
