University of Edinburgh, School of Biological Sciences, Ashworth Laboratories, The King s Buildings, Edinburgh EH9 3JT, United Kingdom
Evolution 59:70-80. 2005..Our results clearly show that the outcome of parasite-mediated selection in this system is strongly context dependent...
- Poor maternal environment enhances offspring disease resistance in an invertebrateSuzanne E Mitchell
School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh Institutes of Evolution, Immunology and Infection Research, Ashworth Laboratories Kings Buildings, West Mains Road, Edinburgh EH9 3JT, Scotland, UK
Proc Biol Sci 272:2601-7. 2005..The large maternal effects we report here will, if they are widespread in nature, affect disease dynamics, the level of genetic polymorphism in populations, and likely weaken the evolutionary response to parasite-mediated selection...
