Urban hubs of connectivity: contrasting patterns of gene flow within and among cities in the western black widow spider

As urbanization drastically alters the natural landscape and generates novel habitats within cities, the potential for changes to gene flow for urban-dwelling species increases. The western black widow spider (Latrodectus hesperus) is a medically …

Is there such a thing as landscape genetics?

For a scientific discipline to be interdisciplinary, it must satisfy two conditions; it must consist of contributions from at least two existing disciplines, and it must be able to provide insights, through this interaction, that neither progenitor …

Ecological coassociations influence species' responses to past climatic change: an example from a Sonoran Desert bark beetle

Ecologically interacting species may have phylogeographical histories that are shaped both by features of their abiotic landscape and by biotic constraints imposed by their coassociation. The Baja California peninsula provides an excellent …
