- ... By consuming and producing environmental resources, organisms inevitably change their habitats. The consequences of such environmental modifications can be detrimental or beneficial not only to the focal organism but also to other organisms sharing the same environment.

While examining the genetic basis for a stable polymorphism observed in bacteria during a long-term mutation experiment, Plucain et al. (p. 1366, published online 6 March) identified three specific, successive mutational events exhibiting synergistic epistatic and f ...
