The earliest documented plague pandemic in Europe, the Plague of Justinian, occurred in the 6th century. However, a recent study by Rasmussen et al. (2015) found plague in Eurasian individuals from the Bronze Age, suggesting that plague was in Europe before the first recorded pandemics. In this journal club, we will discuss a paper by Valtuena, et al. (2016) that presents additional prehistoric Y. pestis genomes.

Effective population size is an important concept in evolutionary biology, providing information about genetic variability, inbreeding and the efficiency of directional selection. Despite its obvious relevance, it has rarely been discussed in the context of fishery-induced selection.

Integral projection models (IPMs) have become a popular tool to assess questions relating to eco-evolutionary dynamics. Within IPMs, change in a continuous trait of interest (body length, leaf area, horn size etc.) are modelled both within generations (growth) and across generations (inheritance). However, current methods of estimating growth and inheritance inherently fail to properly estimate phenotypic evolution.

Diseases can induce detectible genetic changes in host populations by exerting infectious pressure. It has been hypothesized that past plague pandemics have shaped susceptibility to infections in modern European populations. In this journal club, we will discuss immune pathways that have been shaped by convergent evolution in European and Rroma populations in response to plague and other infections.

Estimates of fishing mortality commonly used in stock assessment models are often conditional on restrictive assumptions about natural mortality. However, integrating data from various sources in bayesian state-space models can allow to independently estimate mortalities of different sources.
