- High genetic diversity and fine-scale spatial structure in the marine flagellate Oxyrrhis marina (Dinophyceae) uncovered by microsatellite lociChris D Lowe
School of Biological Sciences, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom
PLoS ONE 5:e15557. 2010..Data presented in this study highlight extensive genetic diversity for O. marina; however, it remains a substantial challenge to uncover the mechanisms that drive genetic diversity in free-living microorganisms...

Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Behaviour, Institute of Integrative Biology, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, L69 7ZB, UK
BMC Genomics 12:519. 2011..In addition, we assess sequence read abundance, as a proxy for gene expression, in response to salinity, an environmental factor potentially important in determining O. marina spatial distributions...

- Field estimates of reproductive success in a model insect: behavioural surrogates are poor predictors of fitnessDavid J Thompson
University of Liverpool, Department of Evolution, Ecology and Behaviour, Biosciences Building, Crown Street, Liverpool, L69 7ZB, UK
Ecol Lett 14:905-13. 2011..Thus, we demonstrate that behavioural measures of reproductive success are not necessarily reliable estimates of fitness in natural populations...
- Redescription of Strombidium oculatum Gruber 1884 (Ciliophora, Oligotrichia)David J S Montagnes
Port Erin Marine Laboratory, University of Liverpool, Isle of Man, British Isles
J Eukaryot Microbiol 49:329-37. 2002..Based on morphological and behavioural characteristics the taxon was distinguished from other similar species, and a neotype has been designated as no type material exists...
- Reproductive timing and patterns of development for the damselfly Coenagrion puella in the fieldChris D Lowe
School of Biological Sciences, University of Liverpool, Crown Street, Liverpool L69 7ZB, United Kingdom
Ecology 90:2202-12. 2009..This appeared to be the result of developmental synchronization within families: variance in timing of maturation was smaller in full-sib families than in half-sib families or randomly assigned unrelated groups...
