- Rainfall-driven sex-ratio genes in African buffalo suggested by correlations between Y-chromosomal haplotype frequencies and foetal sex ratioPim van Hooft
Resource Ecology Group, Wageningen University, 6708 PB Wageningen, The Netherlands
BMC Evol Biol 10:106. 2010..These sex-ratio (SR) genes modify (suppress) gamete transmission in their own favour at a fitness cost, allowing for stable polymorphism...

Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey 08544 1003, USA
Am Nat 167:745-57. 2006..Model assumptions on independent or competing disease risks and environmental variability should be considered explicitly when assessing disease effects on wildlife populations...
- Interactions between macroparasites and microparasites drive infection patterns in free-ranging African buffaloAnna E Jolles
College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Zoology, Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon 97331, USA
Ecology 89:2239-50. 2008..This study is one of the first to examine the relevance of within-host immunological trade-offs for understanding parasite distribution patterns in natural populations...
- Innate immunity in free-ranging African buffalo (Syncerus caffer): associations with parasite infection and white blood cell countsBrianna R Beechler
Department of Biomedical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR 97331, USA
Physiol Biochem Zool 85:255-64. 2012..Our results also show a correlation between bactericidal competence and bovine tuberculosis infection and reveal possible functional polarizations between different types of immune response in a free-ranging mammal...

Mammal Research Institute, Department of Zoology and Entomology, University of Pretoria, Pretoria, South Africa
PLoS ONE 2:e1086. 2007..The mammalian Y chromosome, interacting with ecological processes, may affect male reproductive success much more strongly than previously thought...
