• Adaptive and non-adaptive divergence in a common landscape 

      Raeymaekers, Joost A. M.; Chaturvedi, Anurag; Hablützel, Pascal I.; Verdonck, Io; Hellemans, Bart; Maes, Gregory E.; De Meester, Luc; Volckaert, Filip A. M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Species in a common landscape often face similar selective environments. The capacity of organisms to adapt to these environments may be largely species specific. Quantifying shared and unique adaptive responses across ...
    • Eco-evolutionary feedbacks - theoretical models and perspectives 

      Govaert, Lynn; Fronhofer, Emanuel A.; Lion, Sébastien; Eizaguirre, Christophe; Bonte, Dries; Egas, Martijn; Hendry, Andrew P.; Martins, Ayana de Brito; Melian, Carlos J.; Raeymaekers, Joost A. M.; Ratikainen, Irja Ida; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Schweitzer, Jennifer A.; Matthews, Blake (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Theoretical models pertaining to feedbacks between ecological and evolutionary processes are prevalent in multiple biological fields. An integrative overview is currently lacking, due to little crosstalk between the fields ...
    • Monogenean parasites of sardines in Lake Tanganyika: diversity, origin and intraspecific variability 

      Kmentová, Nikol; Van Steenberge, Maarten; Raeymaekers, Joost A. M.; Koblmüller, Stephan; Hablützel, Pascal I.; Muterezi Bukinga, Fidel; N'sibula, Theophile Mulimbwa; Masilya Mulungula, Pascal; Nzigidahera, Benoît; Ntakimazi, Gaspard; Gelnar, Milan; Vanhove, Maarten P. M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Whereas Lake Tanganyika’s littoral and benthic zones are famous for their diverse fish communities, its pelagic zone is dominated by few species, of which two representatives of Clupeidae (Limnothrissa miodon and Stolothrissa ...
    • Parasite escape through trophic specialization in a species flock 

      Hablützel, PI; Vanhove, MPM; Deschepper, P; Gregoir, AF; Roose, AK; Volckaert, FAM; Raeymaekers, Joost A. M. (Journal article, 2017)
      Adaptive radiation occurs when species diversify rapidly to occupy an array of ecological niches. As opportunities for parasite infection and transmission may greatly vary among these niches, adaptive radiation is expected ...
    • Sea ice loss increases genetic isolation in a high Arctic ungulate metapopulation 

      Peeters, Bart; Le Moullec, Mathilde; Raeymaekers, Joost A. M.; Fredricson Marquez, Jonatan; Røed, Knut; Pedersen, Åshild Ønvik; Veiberg, Vebjørn; Loe, Leif Egil; Hansen, Brage Bremset (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Sea ice loss may have dramatic consequences for population connectivity, extinction–colonization dynamics, and even the persistence of Arctic species subject to climate change. This is of particular concern in face of ...
    • Urbanization erodes niche segregation in Darwin's finches 

      De León, Luis Fernando; Sharpe, Diana, M.T.; Gotanda, Kiyoko; Raeymaekers, Joost A. M.; Chaves, Jaime A.; Hendry, Andrew P.; Podos, Jeffrey (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Urbanization is influencing patterns of biological evolution in ways that are only beginning to be explored. One potential effect of urbanization is in modifying ecological resource distributions that underlie niche ...
