Meiotic Drive Impacts Expression and Evolution of X-Linked Genes in Stalk-Eyed Flies
Although sex chromosome meiotic drive has been observed in a variety of species for over 50 years, the genes causing drive are only known in a few cases, and none of these cases cause distorted sex-ratios in nature. In ...
Age-dependent gene expression in the inner ear of big brown bats (Eptesicus fuscus)
(PLoS (Public Library of Science), 2017-10-26)
For echolocating bats, hearing is essential for survival. Specializations for detecting and processing high frequency sounds are apparent throughout their auditory systems. Recent studies on echolocating mammals have ...
R code used by Braun, Wilkinson, and Cade (2020) in Technical Comment
Chen and Pfennig (Science, 20 March 2020, p. 1377) analyze fitness consequences of hybridization in toads, but do not account for differences in survival among progeny. Apparent fitness effects depend on families with ...
Data for "Nonkin cooperation in bats"
Many bats are extremely social. In some cases, individuals remain together for years or even decades and engage in mutually beneficial behaviors among non-related individuals. Here we summarize ways in which unrelated bats ...
Dynamic sex-specific responses to synthetic songs in a duetting suboscine passerine
(PLoS ONE, 2018-08-29)
Many bird species produce temporally coordinated duets and choruses, requiring the rapid integration of auditory perception and motor production. While males and females of some species are known to participate in these ...
