Macroecology of parental care in arthropods: higher mortality risk leads to higher benefits of offspring protection in tropical climates (2016)
Journal Article
Santos, E. S., Bueno, P. P., Gilbert, J. D. J., & Machado, G. (2017). Macroecology of parental care in arthropods: higher mortality risk leads to higher benefits of offspring protection in tropical climates. Biological Reviews, 92(3), 1688-1701 . https://doi.org/10.1111/brv.12303

The intensity of biotic interactions varies around the world, in such a way that mortality risk imposed by natural enemies is usually higher in the tropics. A major role of offspring attendance is protection against natural enemies, so the benefits o...

Opposing patterns of seasonal change in functional and phylogenetic diversity of tadpole assemblages (2016)
Journal Article
Strauß, A., Guilhaumon, F., Randrianiaina, R. D., Wollenberg Valero, K. C., Vences, M., & Glos, J. (2016). Opposing patterns of seasonal change in functional and phylogenetic diversity of tadpole assemblages. PloS one, 11(3), https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0151744

Assemblages that are exposed to recurring temporal environmental changes can show changes in their ecological properties. These can be expressed by differences in diversity and assembly rules. Both can be identified using two measures of diversity: f... Read More about Opposing patterns of seasonal change in functional and phylogenetic diversity of tadpole assemblages.

Comparing RADseq and microsatellites to infer complex phylogeographic patterns, an empirical perspective in the Crucian carp, Carassius carassius, L. (2016)
Journal Article
Jeffries, D. L., Copp, G. H., Lawson Handley, L., Olsén, K. H., Sayer, C. D., & Hänfling, B. (2016). Comparing RADseq and microsatellites to infer complex phylogeographic patterns, an empirical perspective in the Crucian carp, Carassius carassius, L. Molecular ecology, 25(13), 2997-3018 . https://doi.org/10.1111/mec.13613

The conservation of threatened species must be underpinned by phylogeographic knowledge. This need is epitomized by the freshwater fish Carassius carassius, which is in decline across much of its European range. Restriction site-associated DNA sequen...

The first comprehensive description of the biodiversity and biogeography of Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic intertidal communities (2016)
Journal Article
Griffiths, H. J., & Waller, C. L. (2016). The first comprehensive description of the biodiversity and biogeography of Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic intertidal communities. Journal of Biogeography, 43(6), 1143-1155 . https://doi.org/10.1111/jbi.12708

Aim To describe the distribution of biodiversity and biogeographical patterns of intertidal organisms in southern temperate and polar waters. We hypothesized that there would be differences in community structure between the Antarctic, which is most...
