    Ulrich G Mueller
    Section of Integrative Biology, University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX 78712, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 278:3050-9. 2011
    ..Studies of such populations are most likely to inform models of coextinctions of obligate mutualistic partners that are doubly stressed by habitat marginality and by environmental change...

    Ulrich G Mueller
    Section of Integrative Biology, University of Texas, Austin, TX 78712, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 108:4053-6. 2011
    ..Evolution of cold-tolerant fungi within the symbiosis relaxed constraints on winter fungiculture at the northern frontier of the leafcutter ant distribution, thereby expanding the ecological niche of an obligate host-microbe symbiosis...
