Ecology and Evolution is the peer-reviewed journal for rapid dissemination of research in all areas of ecology, evolution and conservation science. The journal gives priority to quality research reports, theoretical or empirical, that develop our understanding of organisms and their diversity, interactions between them, and the natural environment.
Careful matchmaking can restore genetic diversity for endangered lemurs in captivity, researchers report.
Research reveals that an invasive crayfish species is easier to detect in water samples during breeding, which could lead to better control.
An NDSU botanist is part of a team working to save one of the rarest pine trees in the world.
Understanding salamander breeding patterns may lead to better forest management, conservation strategies
With changing environments, pond-breeding salamanders face increasingly hazardous treks as the space between breeding ponds and their non-breeding habitat widens or is degraded. A study from the University of Missouri suggests ...
Using isotope fingerprints in feathers, researchers have pinpointed the northern breeding grounds of a small, colourful songbird.
Research on birds in northern Europe reveals that there is an ongoing considerable species turnover due to climate change and due to land use and other direct human influences. The findings are published in Ecology and Evolution.
Despite reported differences in appearance and behavior, DNA evidence finds that Namibian desert elephants share the same DNA as African savanna elephants. However, Namibian desert-dwelling elephants should be protected so ...
The changing British landscape could be contributing to the decline in our bee populations, according to Lancaster University research.
Does evolution really trundle along like Darwin's famous Galapagos tortoise? And do the populations undergoing this evolution really grow and decline with the speed of a hare?
Most animals, including humans, have two copies of their genome—the full set of instructions needed to make every cell, tissue, and organ in the body.
