Last-come, best served? Mosquito biting order and Plasmodium transmission

Romain Pigeault, Julie Isaïa, Ana Rivero, Olivier Glaizot & Philippe Christe
A pervasive characteristic of parasite infections is their tendency to be overdispersed. Understanding the mechanisms underlying this overdispersed distribution is of key importance as it may impact the transmission dynamics of the pathogen. Although multiple factors ranging from environmental stochasticity to inter-individual heterogeneity may explain parasite overdispersion, parasite infection is also observed to be overdispersed in inbred host population maintained under laboratory conditions, suggesting that other mechanisms at play. Here, we show that the aggregated...

Data from: Habitat fragmentation differentially shapes neutral and immune gene variation in a tropical bird species

Antoine Perrin, Aurélie Khimoun, Bruno Faivre, Anthony Ollivier, Nyls De Pracontal, Franck Théron, Maxime Loubon, Gilles Leblond, Olivier Duron & Stéphane Garnier
Habitat fragmentation is a major cause of biodiversity loss, responsible for an alteration of intraspecific patterns of neutral genetic diversity and structure. Although neutral genetic variation can be informative for demographic inferences, it may be a poor predictor of adaptive genetic diversity and thus of the consequences of habitat fragmentation on selective evolutionary processes. In this context, we contrasted patterns of genetic diversity and structure of neutral loci (microsatellites) and immune genes (i.e., toll-like receptors)...
