The role of sexual imprinting in speciation: lessons from deer mice (genus Peromyscus)
Sexual imprinting, the process of learning mate preferences at a young age, could promote speciation by reducing attraction to individuals from divergent populations or species, consequently creating or maintaining ...
Genomic insights into bacterial adaptation during infection
Bacteria evolve during the colonization of human hosts, yet little is known about the selective pressures and evolutionary forces that shape this evolution. Illumination of these processes may inspire new therapeutic ...
A Synthetic Yeast Model for Differentiation and Division of Labor
To maintain high average fitness, populations must effect selection against the deleterious mutations that continuously arise de novo. Theoretical models of mutation-selection balance predict that the maximum tolerable ...
The evolution and development of the archosaurian head and the origin of the bird skull
Abstract: Archosauria, the "ruling reptiles," characterized along their stem by relatively large, macrocarnivorous animals, are today represented by two enormously successful but divergent extant clades: Aves, the birds, ...
