Transcriptomic analysis of MAP3K1 and MAP3K4 in the developing marsupial gonad
MAPKs affect gonadal differentiation in mice and humans, but whether this applies to all mammals is as yet unknown. We investigated MAPK expression during gonadal differentiation in a distantly related mammal, the marsupial ...
Martin, J. A review of the genus Chironomus (Diptera: Chironomidae). II. Added descriptions of Chironomus cloacalis Atchley and Martin from Australia.
(Natural Sciences Research Institute, University of Eastern New Mexico, 1971)
5-HT1A, SST1, and SST2 receptors mediate inhibitory postsynaptic potentials in the submucous plexus of the guinea pig ileum
(AMER PHYSIOLOGICAL SOC, 2010-03-01)
Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) immunoreactive neurons are important secretomotor neurons in the submucous plexus. They are the only submucosal neurons to receive inhibitory inputs and exhibit both noradrenergic and ...
Incorporating spatial autocorrelation into species distribution models alters forecasts of climate-mediated range shifts
Species distribution models (SDMs) are widely used to forecast changes in the spatial distributions of species and communities in response to climate change. However, spatial autocorrelation (SA) is rarely accounted for ...
Experimental Evolution under Fluctuating Thermal Conditions Does Not Reproduce Patterns of Adaptive Clinal Differentiation in Drosophila melanogaster
(UNIV CHICAGO PRESS, 2015-11-01)
Experimental evolution can be a useful tool for testing the impact of environmental factors on adaptive changes in populations, and this approach is being increasingly used to understand the potential for evolutionary ...
Daily temperature extremes play an important role in predicting thermal effects
(COMPANY OF BIOLOGISTS LTD, 2015-07-01)
Organisms in natural environments experience diel temperature fluctuations, including sporadic extreme conditions, rather than constant temperatures. Studies based mainly on model organisms have tended to focus on responses ...
Females Choose Mates Based on Genetic Relatedness in a Small Dasyurid Marsupial, the Agile Antechinus (Antechinus agilis)
(PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2015-04-29)
Females in a variety of taxa mate with more than one male during a single oestrus and exhibit mate preferences for genetically compatible males, but the influence of female mate choice on siring success is not clearly ...
Host Coenzyme Q Redox State Is an Early Biomarker of Thermal Stress in the Coral Acropora millepora
(PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2015-10-01)
Bleaching episodes caused by increasing seawater temperatures may induce mass coral mortality and are regarded as one of the biggest threats to coral reef ecosystems worldwide. The current consensus is that this phenomenon ...
Genetic Traces of Recent Long-Distance Dispersal in a Predominantly Self-Recruiting Coral
(PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2008-10-14)
BACKGROUND: Understanding of the magnitude and direction of the exchange of individuals among geographically separated subpopulations that comprise a metapopulation (connectivity) can lead to an improved ability to forecast ...
Investment in sensory structures, testis size, and wing coloration in males of a diurnal moth species: trade-offs or correlated growth?
For dioecious animals, reproductive success typically involves an exchange between the sexes of signals that provide information about mate location and quality. Typically, the elaborate, secondary sexual ornaments of males ...
