Wild salmon sustain the effectiveness of parasite control on salmon farms: Conservation implications from an evolutionary ecosystem serviceDownload
Rapid evolution can increase or maintain the provision of ecosystem services, motivating the conservation of wild species and communities. We detail one such contemporary evosystem service by synthesizing theoretical evidence that rapid evolution can sustain parasiticide efficacy in salmon...
The chloroplast NAD(P)H dehydrogenase-like (NDH) complex consists of about 30 subunits from both thenuclear and chloroplast genomes and is ubiquitous across most land plants. In some orchids, such as Pha-laenopsis equestris, Dendrobium ofﬁcinale and Dendrobium catenatum, most of the 11...
Cyanogenic glycosides are secondary plant compounds that are widespread in the plant kingdom. Their biosynthesis starts with the conversion of aromatic or aliphatic amino acids into their respective aldoximes, catalysed by N-hydroxylating cytochrome P450 monooxygenases (CYP) of the CYP79 family....
Background: Strigolactones (SLs) are a class of plant hormones that control many aspects of plant growth. The SL signalling mechanism is homologous to that of karrikins (KARs), smoke-derived compounds that stimulate seed germination. In angiosperms, the SL receptor is an α/β-hydrolase known as...
Whole-genome duplication and molecular evolution in Cornus L.(Cornaceae)–Insights from transcriptome sequencesDownload
The pattern and rate of genome evolution have profound consequences in organismal evolution. Whole-genome duplication (WGD), or polyploidy, has been recognized as an important evolutionary mechanism of plant diversification. However, in non-model plants the molecular signals of genome...
Breeding matters: Natal experience influences population state-dependent host acceptance by an eruptive insect herbivoreDownload
Eruptive forest insects are highly influential agents of change in forest ecosystems, and their effects have increased with recent climate change. State-dependent life histories contribute significantly to the population dynamics of eruptive forest insect herbivores; however, the proximate...
Identifying behavioral mechanisms that underlie observed movement patterns is difficult when animals employ sophisticated cognitive‐based strategies. Such strategies may arise when timing of return visits is important, for instance to allow for resource renewal or territorial patrolling. We...
The mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae; MPB) is an eruptive bark beetle species afecting pine forests of western North America. MPB are exposed to volatile monoterpenes, which are important host defense chemicals. We assessed the toxicity of the ten most abundant monoterpenes of...
Cyanobacterial biofactories: combining evolved and synthetic genetic regulatory mechanisms to yield carbon-neutral bioproductsDownload
While cyanobacteria hold the promise of producing useful bioproducts from little more than sunlight and carbon dioxide, their economic feasibility hinges on developing better mechanisms to manipulate gene expression in order to divert photosynthate towards product formation. A recent report...
