- Maternal effects due to male attractiveness affect offspring development in the zebra finchL Gilbert
School of Biology, St Andrews University, Fife, UK
Proc Biol Sci 273:1765-71. 2006..Furthermore, due to the experiment design, we can conclude that these effects were mediated by differential investment of egg resources and not due to genetic differences or differences in nestling care...

The James Hutton Institute, Craigiebuckler, Aberdeen AB15 8QH, UK
Parasitology 140:247-57. 2013..Our results will help inform tick control policies, optimize the targeting of control methods and identify conditions where host management is most likely to succeed. Our approach is applicable to other host-vector-pathogen systems...
