Sex differences in immunity have been observed across a wide range of species. Still, it remains unclear how sex-specific interactions with the environment are linked to sex differences in immunity...

How sexual traits are gained and lost in the wild remains an important question in evolutionary biology. Pacific field crickets (Teleogryllus oceanicus) in Hawaii provide an unprecedented opportuni...

McLean et al. (1) point to biorepositories as important sources of historical information that can successfully inform disease control by identifying potential novel pathogens. They highlight “modern biospecimen infrastructure,” such as museums and independent collections. Indeed, scientists increasingly recognize the need for expertise in taxonomy, curation of specimens, and the treatment of artifacts, expertise that is disappearing as museums close and budgets tighten (2). Collections can docu...

Evolutionary loss of traits is common over evolutionary time and occurs in diverse taxa. Sexual signals and other non-signal traits should differ in their likelihood of becoming lost because they experience different selective pressures contributing to their diminution or persistence. In particular, conspicuous sexual signals are often exploited by natural enemies; this significant cost can favor signal reduction or loss. Yet sexual signals should also experience strong selection favoring their ...

While the reproductive benefits of sexual displays have been widely studied, we have relatively limited evidence of the fitness costs associated with most display traits. Insect cuticular hydrocarbon (CHC) profiles are sexually selected traits that also protect against desiccation. These two functions are thought to oppose each other, with investment in particular compounds believed to increase attractiveness at the expense of compounds that protect against water loss. We investigated this poten...

Zoonoses, such as plague, are primarily animal diseases that spill over into human populations. While the goal of eradicating such diseases is enticing, historical experience validates abandoning eradication in favor of ecologically based control strategies (which reduce morbidity and mortality to a locally accepted risk level). During the 20th century, one of the most extensive plague-eradication efforts in recorded history was undertaken to enable large-scale changes in land use in the former ...
