Founder effects and species introductions: A host versus parasite perspective
Species colonizations (both natural and anthropogenic) can be associated with genetic founder effects, where founding populations demonstrate significant genetic bottlenecks compared to native populations. Yet, many ...
An evolutionary perspective on marine invasions
Species distributions are rapidly changing as human globalization increasingly moves organisms to novel environments. In marine systems, species introductions are the result of a number of anthropogenic mechanisms, notably ...
Recent introductions reveal differential susceptibility to parasitism across an evolutionary mosaic
Parasitism can represent a potent agent of selection, and introduced parasites have the potential to substantially alter their new hosts' ecology and evolution. While sig‐ nificant impacts have been reported for parasites ...
Circular Single-Stranded DNA Virus (Microviridae: Gokushovirinae: Jodiemicrovirus) Associated with the Pathobiome of the Flat-Back Mud Crab, Eurypanopeus depressus
A single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) virus is presented from a metagenomic data set derived from Alphaproteobacteria-infected hepatopancreatic tissues of the crab Eurypanopeus depressus. The circular virus genome (4,768 bp) encodes ...
