A Comparative Approach To Elucidating The Physiological Response In Symbiodinium To Changes In Temperature
Coral reefs are one of the most biodiverse ecosystems, and play a large role in the functioning of oceanic and coastal ecosystems. They are currently declining around the world, largely due to the effects of climate change ...
The CCHC Motif In Non-LTR Retrotransposons Modulates RNA Associated Protein Conformational Changes
Non-LTR retrotransposons encode a conserved cysteine histidine motif of undetermined function. The spacing of the cysteines and histidine residues in the motif is CX₃CX₇HX4C. The site specific non-LTR retrotransposon R2Bm ...
Local And Watershed Influences On The Species Composition And Functional Organization Of Stream Diatom Communities In The Acid-impacted Adirondack Region Of New York
For over 40 years, acid deposition has been recognized as a serious international environmental problem, but efforts to restore acidified streams and biota have had limited success. The need to better understand the effects ...
Investigation Of Potential Virulence Factors In Pathogenic Marine Bacteria
Coral reefs provide numerous ecological and economic functions and are critical to biodiversity in marine environments. Critical to coral reef health and diversity is the microbial consortium within the coral host along ...
Seasonal And Habitat-based Prey Diversity Of Bobcats, Lynx Rufus, In Big Bend National Park, Texas
The bobcat (Lynx rufus) population in Big Bend National Park (BIBE) provides an excellent opportunity for study due to the varied arid habitat in which they exist, the dynamic nature of their environment, and the paucity ...
Mechanisms Affecting Predation Success In Wolf Spiders
Predator-prey interactions play a role in community structure through a variety of different mechanisms including direct consumption, density-mediated indirect effects, and trait-mediated indirect effects. Understanding ...
