Geographical location influences the composition of the gut microbiota in wild house mice (Mus musculus domesticus) at a fine spatial scale (2019)
Journal Article
Goertz, S., de Menezes, A. B., Birtles, R. J., Fenn, J., Lowe, A. E., MacColl, A. D., …Taylor, C. H. (2019). Geographical location influences the composition of the gut microbiota in wild house mice (Mus musculus domesticus) at a fine spatial scale. PLoS ONE, 14(9), https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0222501

The composition of the mammalian gut microbiota can be influenced by a multitude of environmental variables such as diet and infections. Studies investigating the effect of these variables on gut microbiota composition often sample across multiple se...

Immune state is associated with natural dietary variation in wild mice Mus musculus domesticus (2019)
Journal Article
Taylor, C. H., Young, S., Fenn, J., Lamb, A. L., Lowe, A. E., Poulin, B., …Bradley, J. E. (2019). Immune state is associated with natural dietary variation in wild mice Mus musculus domesticus. Functional Ecology, 33(8), doi:10.1111/1365-2435.13354

1. The ability, propensity and need to mount an immune response vary both among individuals and within a single individual over time. 2. A wide array of parameters have been found to influence immune state in carefully controlled experiments, but...
