Distinct Patterns of Desynchronized Limb Regression in Malagasy Scincine Lizards (Squamata, Scincidae)
(PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2015-06-04)
Scincine lizards in Madagascar form an endemic clade of about 60 species exhibiting a variety of ecomorphological adaptations. Several subclades have adapted to burrowing and convergently regressed their limbs and eyes, ...
New phylogenetic hypotheses for the core Chlorophyta based on chloroplast sequence data
Implications of Future Climate for Seagrass and Soft Sediments.
(Glenelg Hopkins Catchment Management Authority, 2013)
Engineering temporal accumulation of a low recalcitrance polysaccharide leads to increased C6 sugar content in plant cell walls
Reduced cell wall recalcitrance and increased C6 monosaccharide content are desirable traits for future biofuel crops, as long as these biomass modifications do not significantly alter normal growth and development. ...
