An octopamine receptor confers selective toxicity of amitraz on honeybees and
Lei Guo et al.
The structural and pharmacological difference of the invertebrate counterpart of β-adrenergic receptor confers selective toxicity of an insecticide on honeybees and their devastating parasite
Living with relatives offsets the harm caused by pathogens in natural populations
Hanna M Bensch et al.
Experiments show that pathogens spread more easily among relatives causing increased mortality, but such costs are cancelled out by the benefits of living with kin when pathogens are rare.
Microbiology and Infectious Disease
Niche partitioning facilitates coexistence of closely related honey bee gut bacteria
Silvia Brochet et al.
Rapid spread of a densovirus in a major crop pest following wide-scale adoption of Bt-cotton in China
Yutao Xiao et al.
Matrix-trapped viruses can prevent invasion of bacterial biofilms by colonizing cells
Matthew C Bond et al.
Inversion of pheromone preference optimizes foraging in
Martina Dal Bello et al.
Worms' attraction to pheromones turns into repulsion when a food patch is depleted, helping them avoid already exploited territories and search for new food sources.
Broad geographic sampling reveals the shared basis and environmental correlates of seasonal adaptation in
Heather E Machado et al.
Seasonal selection is a general feature of
genetic variation, occurring in North American and European populations and affecting large proportions of the genome.
The Natural History of Model Organisms: Neurogenomic insights into the behavioral and vocal development of the zebra finch
Mark E Hauber et al.
The genetic and behavioral diversity of the zebra finch, both in the wild and in captivity, make it well-suited for neuroethological studies of vocal learning, culture, and social bonding.
Understanding the evolution of multiple drug resistance in structured populations
David V McLeod, Sylvain Gandon
The evolution of multidrug resistance can be most easily understood by focusing upon the dynamical equations of linkage disequilibrium.
The effect of host community functional traits on plant disease risk varies along an elevational gradient
Fletcher W Halliday et al.
Environmental gradients can modify a fundamental relationship between host community structure and disease, with implications for predicting disease risk in a changing world.
