Multiple lines of anti-predator defence in the spotted lanternfly, Lycorma delicatula (Hemiptera: Fulgoridae)

Kang, C. K., Moon, H. M., Sherratt, T. N., Lee, S. I., Jablonski, P. G. Many species have evolved a suite of anti-predator defences, rather than a single defence. These multiple defences may operate in synchrony or separately at different stages of predation sequence to protect the prey. However, empirical documentation on how

Early Duplication of a Single MHC IIB Locus Prior to the Passerine Radiations

Eimes, J. A., Lee, S. I., Townsend, A. K., Jablonski, P. G., Nishiumi, I., Satta, Y. A key characteristic of MHC genes is the persistence of allelic lineages over macroevolutionary periods, often through multiple speciation events. This phenomenon, known as trans-species polymorphism (TSP), is well documented in several major taxonomic groups, but has

Do Parents Adjust Predator Warning Calls to the Age of Nestlings: Expriments on Parus minor?

Ha, J. M., Yang, E. J., Lee, K. S., Lee, S. I., Jablonski, P. G. The Oriental tits Parus minor is known for their specialized ‘snake call’ to make their nestlings jump out from the nest box when the snake is approaching (Suzuki 2011). Hence, the function of “snake call” is to induce jumping

Water striders adjust leg movement speed to optimize takeoff velocity for their morphology

Yang, E., Son, J. H., Jablonski, P. G., & Kim, H. Y. Water striders are water-walking insects that can jump upwards from the water surface. Quick jumps allow striders to avoid sudden dangers such as predators’ attacks, and therefore their jumping is expected to be shaped by natural selection for optimal performance. Related

Adaptations of Grasshoppers to Jump From Flexible Substrates

Jung, Y. J., Baek, M. J., Kim, Y. W, Yang, E. J., Kim, H. Y., Klassen, M. J., Moeller, J. M., Kim, H. K., Lee, S. I., Jablonski, P. G. Grasshoppers have become model organisms to understand the biomechanics of jumps. However, surprisingly little is known about their adaptations to the natural substrates

Can Water Striders Adjust Their Jumping Performance to Their Body Mass Through Individual Experience

Baek, M. Jung., Lawin, K. M., Codden, C. J., Lim, H. K., Lee, S. I., Jablonski, P. G. In response to predators’ attacks from under the water surface, water striders use sudden upward escape-jumps to escape danger. Water striders perform as if they “knew” how to move their legs for maximization of their

Detection of Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria from the Feces of Eurasian Magpie pica pica

Kim, Y. W., Jablonski, P. G., Choe, J. C., Lee, S. I. Drug resistance in bacteria is one of the most important issues in the world. Previous studies show that antibiotic-resistant bacteria can be carried by populations of wild animals inhabiting urban environment or human settlements. In this study, we examined the presence
