Journal Article
Johnson, M. L., & Hull, S. L. (2006). Interactions between fangblennies (Plagiotremus rhinorhynchus) and their potential victims: fooling the model rather than the client?. Marine Biology, 148(4), (889-897). doi:10.1007/s00227-005-0118-y. ISSN 0025-3162

Lepidophagous (scale-eating) blue-striped fangblennies (Plagiotremus rhinorhynchus Bleeker 1852) are often found sympatrically with the bluestreak cleaner wrasse (Labroides dimidiatus Valenciennes 1839). They have some resemblance to the juvenile L.... Read More

The shallow water gobiid assemblage of the Venice Lagoon: abundance, seasonal variation and habitat partitioning (2005)
Journal Article
Malavasi, S., Franco, A., Fiorin, R., Franzoi, P., Torricelli, P., & Mainardi, D. (2005). The shallow water gobiid assemblage of the Venice Lagoon: abundance, seasonal variation and habitat partitioning. Journal of fish biology, 67(SUPPL. B), 146-165. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.0022-1112.2005.00919.x

The gobiid assemblage of the Venice Lagoon shallow waters was investigated by means of a semi-quantitative standardized sampling (using a small beach seine), stratified into five main types of shallow subtidal habitats and conducted on a seasonal bas... Read More

Use of shallow water habitats by fish assemblages in a Mediterranean coastal lagoon (2005)
Journal Article
Franco, A., Franzoi, P., Malavasi, S., Riccato, F., Torricelli, P., & Mainardi, D. (2006). Use of shallow water habitats by fish assemblages in a Mediterranean coastal lagoon. Estuarine, coastal and shelf science, 66(1-2), 67-83. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecss.2005.07.020

The present study investigates the different uses and the functional roles of shallow habitats for fish fauna in the Venice Lagoon, by applying the functional guilds approach. Temporal (seasons) and spatial (location) changes within the lagoon show d... Read More

Evolutionary history of the greater white-toothed shrew (Crocidura russula) inferred from analysis of mtDNA, Y, and X chromosome markers (2005)
Journal Article
Brändli, L., Handley, L. L., Vogel, P., & Perrin, N. (2005). Evolutionary history of the greater white-toothed shrew (Crocidura russula) inferred from analysis of mtDNA, Y, and X chromosome markers. Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, 37(3), (832-844). doi:10.1016/j.ympev.2005.06.019. ISSN 1055-7903

We investigate the evolutionary history of the greater white-toothed shrew across its distribution in northern Africa and mainland Europe using sex-specific (mtDNA and Y chromosome) and biparental (X chromosome) markers. All three loci confirm a larg... Read More

Mitochondrial DNA phylogeography of the Mesoamerican spiny-tailed lizards (Ctenosaura quinquecarinata complex): Historical biogeography, species status and conservation (2005)
Journal Article
Köhler, G., Hasbún, C. R., Gomez, A., & Lunt, D. (2005). Mitochondrial DNA phylogeography of the Mesoamerican spiny-tailed lizards (Ctenosaura quinquecarinata complex): Historical biogeography, species status and conservation. Molecular ecology, 14(10), 3095-3107. doi:10.1111/j.1365-294x.2005.02665.x

Through the examination of past and present distributions of plants and animals, historical biogeographers have provided many insights on the dynamics of the massive organismal exchange between North and South America. However, relatively few phyloge... Read More

Fighting in fiddler crabs Uca mjoebergi: what determines duration? (2005)
Journal Article
Morrell, L. J., Backwell, P. R., & Metcalfe, N. B. (2005). Fighting in fiddler crabs Uca mjoebergi: what determines duration?. Animal behaviour, 70(3), (653-662). doi:10.1016/j.anbehav.2004.11.014. ISSN 0003-3472

Contest duration in animals is often interpreted as being a consequence of mutual assessment of the difference in the competitors' resource-holding potential (RHP), allowing the inferior individual to avoid costly interactions it is likely to lose. D... Read More

Why are small males aggressive? (2005)
Journal Article
Morrell, L. J., Lindström, J., & Ruxton, G. D. (2005). Why are small males aggressive?. Proceedings. the Royal Society. Biological sciences /, 272(1569), (1235-1241). doi:10.1098/rspb.2005.3085. ISSN 0962-8452

Aggression is ubiquitous in the animal kingdom, whenever the interests of individuals conflict. In contests between animals, the larger opponent is often victorious. However, counter intuitively, an individual that has little chance of winning (gener... Read More

An extant cichlid fish radiation emerged in an extinct Pleistocene lake (2005)
Journal Article
Seehausen, O., Sturmbauer, C., Duftner, N., Katongo, C., Turner, G., Bills, R., …Lunt, D. (2005). An extant cichlid fish radiation emerged in an extinct Pleistocene lake. Nature, 435(7038), 90-95. doi:10.1038/nature03489

The haplochromine cichlid fish of the East African Great Lakes represent some of the fastest and most species-rich adaptive radiations known(1), but rivers in most of Africa accommodate only a few morphologically similar species of haplochromine cich... Read More

Conservation of cancer genes in the marine invertebrate Mytilus edulis (2005)
Journal Article
Ciocan, C. M., & Rotchell, J. M. (2005). Conservation of cancer genes in the marine invertebrate Mytilus edulis. Environmental Science and Technology, 39(9), (3029-3033). doi:10.1021/es0400887. ISSN 0013-936X

Mussels are susceptible to a wide range of environmental toxicants, including carcinogens, and thus are often employed as bioindicator species. To elucidate the molecular aetiology of such neoplastic damage, we have cloned Mytilus edulis homologues o... Read More
