Study Detail

TitleDispersal limitation promotes the diversification of the mammalian gut microbiota
Study TypeOther
Abstract The gut bacterial communities of mammals have profound effectson host fitness, but the processes that generate and maintain gutbacterial diversity remain poorly understood. We mapped compositionalvariation (i.e., ß-diversity) in the gut microbiotas of 136 pairsof wild mammalian species living throug .. [more]
