Genetic evidence confirms the origin of the house mouse on sub-Antarctic Marion Island
Biological invasions and climate change are two of the largest threats to biodiversity, and this is especially true for island ecosystems that have largely evolved in isolation. The house mouse is considered to have been ...
Cryptic spatial aggregation of the cushion plant Azorella selago (apiaceae) revealed by a multilocus molecular approach suggests frequent intraspecific facilitation under Sub-Antarctic conditions
(Botanical Society of America, 2011)
• Premise of the study: In abiotically severe habitats, intraspecifi c aggregations can increase species ’ fi tness by ameliorating stressful environmental factors. However, the diffi culty of identifying individual plants ...
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 ...
