Chikungunya (CHIKV) is a mosquito-borne viral infection that causes rashes, fever and joint symptoms. In this study, researchers take a data-driven, ecological approach to predicting spread of CHIKV by focusing on the 2013 outbreak in the Americas
The amphibian fauna of the Philippines is high in diversity and endemism, yet faces threats from habitat modification, invasive species, hunting, and the spread of chytrid fungus. Developing a complete species list of amphibians is essential for conservation planning and informed management decisions
What causes certain groups of organisms to have more species than others? This study seeks an answer by examining the relationship between ecological niche evolution and diversification in the largest family of songbirds, the tanagers (Thraupidea).
