    A cross-city molecular biogeographic investigation of arbuscular mycorrhizas in Conyza canadensis rhizosphere across native and non-native regions

    The ecological processes underlying the suppressive impacts of invasive species on native species diversity, both above- and below-ground, in non-native regions are not well understood. We therefore aimed to i...

    Monitoring the diversity of malaria and dengue vector in Karachi: studying variation of genera and subgenera of mosquitoes under different ecological conditions

    Karachi, a city of unique terrain and moderate tropical climate, is home to several mosquito species. The geographical distribution and density of these species may vary within the city, owing to their interac...
