Journal Article
Kahrl, A. F., Ivanov, B. M., Valero, K. C. W., & Johnson, M. A. (2018). Ecomorphological Variation in Three Species of Cybotoid Anoles. Herpetologica, 74(1), 29-37. https://doi.org/10.1655/Herpetologica-D-17-00040

© 2018 by The Herpetologists' League, Inc. Caribbean Anolis lizards exhibit a complex suite of ecological, morphological, and behavioral traits that allow their specialization to particular microhabitats. These microhabitat specialists, called ecomor... Read More

Plant phenology supports the multi-emergence hypothesis for Ebola spillover events (2017)

Wollenberg Valero, K. C., Isokpehi, R., Douglas, N. E., Sivasundaram, S., Johnson, B., Wootson, K., & McGill, A. (2017). Plant phenology supports the multi-emergence hypothesis for Ebola spillover events

Ebola virus disease outbreaks in animals (including humans and great apes) start with sporadic host switches from unknown reservoir species. The factors leading to such spillover events are little explored. Filoviridae viruses have a wide range of na... Read More

Genomic and phenotypic signatures of climate adaptation in an Anolis lizard (2017)
Journal Article
Rodríguez, A., Rusciano, T., Hamilton, R., Holmes, L., Jordan, D., & Wollenberg Valero, K. C. (2017). Genomic and phenotypic signatures of climate adaptation in an Anolis lizard. Ecology and Evolution, 7(16), 6390-6403. https://doi.org/10.1002/ece3.2985

Integrated knowledge on phenotype, physiology and genomic adaptations is required to understand the effects of climate on evolution. The functional genomic basis of organismal adaptation to changes in the abiotic environment, its phenotypic consequen... Read More

Transcriptomic and macroevolutionary evidence for phenotypic uncoupling between frog life history phases (2017)
Journal Article
Wollenberg Valero, K. C., Garcia-Porta, J., Rodríguez, A., Arias, M., Shah, A., Randrianiaina, R. D., …Vences, M. (2017). Transcriptomic and macroevolutionary evidence for phenotypic uncoupling between frog life history phases. Nature communications, 8, https://doi.org/10.1038/ncomms15213

Anuran amphibians undergo major morphological transitions during development, but the contribution of their markedly different life-history phases to macroevolution has rarely been analysed. Here we generate testable predictions for coupling versus u... Read More
