  1. pmc Running with the Red Queen: host-parasite coevolution selects for biparental sex
    Levi T Morran
    Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47405, USA
    Science 333:216-8. 2011
    ..Thus, consistent with the Red Queen hypothesis, coevolving pathogens can select for biparental sex...
  2. pmc Temporal dynamics of outcrossing and host mortality rates in host-pathogen experimental coevolution
    Levi T Morran
    Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN, USA
    Evolution 67:1860-8. 2013
    ..Thus, we found that host-pathogen coevolution can generate rapid evolutionary change, and that host mating system can influence the outcome of coevolution at a fine temporal scale. ..
  3. pmc Experimental coevolution: rapid local adaptation by parasites depends on host mating system
    Levi T Morran
    Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana 47405
    Am Nat 184:S91-100. 2014
    ..These results show that the evolutionary trajectories of both hosts and parasites can be shaped by the host's mating system...
  4. pmc Nematode-bacteria mutualism: Selection within the mutualism supersedes selection outside of the mutualism
    Levi T Morran
    Department of Biology, Indiana University, 1001 E Third St, Bloomington, Indiana, 47405
    Evolution 70:687-95. 2016
    ..The results show that selection on isolated mutualists can rapidly breakdown beneficial interactions between species, but that selection within a mutualism can supersede external selection, potentially generating codependence over time. ..
