Differences in predatory pressure on terrestrial snails by birds and mammals. (7/73)

The evolution of shell polymorphism in terrestrial snails is a classic textbook example of the effect of natural selection in which avian and mammalian predation represents an important selective force on gene frequency. However, many questions about predation remain unclear, especially in the case of mammals. We collected 2000 specimens from eight terrestrial gastropod species to investigate the predation pressure exerted by birds and mice on snails. We found evidence of avian and mammalian predation in 26.5% and 36.8% of the shells. Both birds and mammals were selective with respect to snail species, size and morphs. Birds preferred the brown-lipped banded snail Cepaea nemoralis (L.) and mice preferred the burgundy snail Helix pomatia L. Mice avoided pink mid-banded C. nemoralis and preferred brown mid-banded morphs, which were neglected by birds. In contrast to mice, birds chose larger individuals. Significant differences in their predatory pressure can influence the evolution and maintenance of shell size and polymorphism of shell colouration in snails.  (+info)

In recent years, Cepaea nemoralis, the introduced European Grovesnail, has been turning up more and more.. This past summer I was asked to identify two separate records of C. nemoralis from Quesnel, BC. The population there is apparently well-established. However, in the Bulkley Valley where I live in north-central BC, Cepaea nemoralis certainly isnt common.. As far as I know, its been found at least on three occasions over three years. The first individual brought to my attention was a large adult found on a road in a rural part of Smithers in October 2008. A little later that fall, in my own vegetable garden, I found an immature snail. Its presence there was almost certainly due to the movement of plants north from by dads garden, then in Surrey. In the two years since then, Cepaea nemoralis hasnt been seen again in my garden so I can presume that this unintentional transplant failed.. The third observation on Cepaea in the Valley was in September 2010, in the village of Telkwa about 15 km ...

Increased understanding of the molecular components involved in reproduction may assist in understanding the evolutionary adaptations used by animals, including hermaphrodites, to produce offspring and retain a continuation of their lineage. In this study, we focus on the Mediterranean snail, Theba pisana, a hermaphroditic land snail that has become a highly invasive pest species within agricultural areas throughout the world. Our analysis of T. pisana CNS tissue has revealed gene transcripts encoding molluscan reproduction-associated proteins including APGWamide, gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) and an egg-laying hormone (ELH). ELH isoform 1 (ELH1) is known to be a potent reproductive peptide hormone involved in ovulation and egg-laying in some aquatic molluscs. Two other non-CNS ELH isoforms were also present in T. pisana (Tpi-ELH2 and Tpi-ELH3) within the snail dart sac and mucous glands. Bioactivity of a synthetic ELH1 on sexually mature T. pisana was confirmed through bioassay, with snails
Summary The host-parasite relationship between Schistosoma mansoni and the snail Australorbis glabratus has been studied in aquarium-reared (unsterile) and bacteriologically sterile snails. Detailed observations on the sites of development, routes of migration, and normal and abnormal histology of the parasite, and on the pathologic changes produced in the host, as seen in serial sections of snails fixed at various intervals after infection, showed these to be similar in snails of both types. By comparison with normal controls, it has been found that infection of aquarium-reared snails suppresses fecundity, that an acceleration of shell growth appears before the parasite matures, and that an eventual stunting of shell growth and a high mortality coincides with the period of heavy cercarial emergence and the appearance of intense host tissue reactions. From observations on the development of the parasite in relation to tissue changes and mortality among infected snails, it is concluded that the extensive
La Jolla, CA , Posted on October 23rd, 2012. The high aspect ratio of the thin, long AgNW-25 silver nanowire population offers enhanced electrical and thermal properties for many applications (e.g. transparent conductive films). More efficient conductive networks are achieved using this geometry. AgNW-25 is available as a uniform dispersion in either aqueous or solvent solutions. The AgNW-130 material is well suited for applications where highly conductive materials are required, for example, conductive pastes, EMI shielding or photovoltaic applications. These new silver nanowire products, branded as HiFlex eFilm materials, are commercially available both at research and industrial scale.

However, the influence of bacteria on shell dissolution under OA conditions is unknown. In this study, dissolution in dead…
The snails Cepaea nemoralis and C. hortensis are remarkable for an extensive and stable polymorphism involving the colour and banding of the shell. It was formerly thought that the variation in frequency of the different morphs between populations was random. Cain & Sheppard, for nemoralis and Clarke, for C. hortensis, have shown that in many English colonies visual selection by thrushes, and no doubt other predators, strongly influences the frequencies of the morphs, the more conspicuous on a given background being more heavily predated. In consequence populations tend to match their backgrounds, but remain polymorphic. In some districts of high chalk downland, this correspondence with background does not occur. The predominance of a few morphs irrespective of habitat and background characterizes areas vastly larger than that of a panmictic population. Such a constancy of morph frequencies over a large and diverse area in spite of visual selection we call an area effect. The principal district ...
Underground drilling on the Boulder vein system in the 1980s intersected sulphides along the margins of the vein, predominantly on the hangingwall. In decreasing order of abundance, sulphides consisted of disseminated pyrrhotite, pyrite, chalcopyrite and arsenopyrite. The Boulder vein system changes character downdip and along strike from a more massive quartz vein to a quartz stringer with pervasive silicification. The sulphide content also increases downdip and occurs as a silica-sulphide replacement zone. Tuffaceous sediments in the hangingwall also contain more sulphides downdip. During drilling, visible gold was noted in at least three areas of replacement and appeared to be associated with arsenopyrite. The best intersections from underground drill holes were from drill holes U-15 and U-19. The 1.4-metre interval between 23.9 and 25.3 metres from drill hole U-15 yielded 20.57 grams per tonne gold (Assessment Report 23492). The 1.6-metre interval between 14.6 and 16.2 metres from drill hole ...

Actually, it was the first Hardshell "founding fathers" who, more than Montgomery and neo-Hardshells, made spiritual birth to be totally like natural birth. They argued that there were clear stages in birth. First, there is conception, the actual implanting of the divine seed, or "regeneration," next followed by a time of hidden growth in the womb, or "conviction" of sin by the workings of the law, and then final deliverance from the womb, or salvation. In this paradigm, "regeneration" was by the "Spirit alone," apart from all means, God planting his seed, generating "life," while "conviction" represented the regenerated soul under conviction and struggling for relief, and finally the emergence of the child from the womb was represented as the time when the regenerated soul was converted. Many of the first Hardshells believed that all three stages were necessary for one to be "born again." Thus, they did not equate being "regenerated" with being "born again." They also saw themselves as ...
Question: What exact material are paintball shells generally made of? I need to write a paper for my materials class and I want to do a little research on prolonging the shelf life of a paintball. I know that a large problem is that they absorb water and swell. I propose that there could be some coating put on the paintball that would prevent this or at least delay it, giving paintballs a longer shelf life. My biggest concern is environmental impact.

On the whole, the fossil record only contains mineralised exoskeletons, since these are by far the most durable. Since most lineages with exoskeletons are thought to have started out with a non-mineralised exoskeleton which they later mineralised, this makes it difficult to comment on the very early evolution of each lineages exoskeleton. We do know that in a very short course of time just before the Cambrian period exoskeletons made of various materials - silica, calcium phosphate, calcite, aragonite, and even glued-together mineral flakes - sprang up in a range of different environments.[7] Most lineages adopted the form of calcium carbonate which was stable in the ocean at the time they first mineralissd, and did not change from this mineral morph - even when it became the less favorable.[2]. Some Precambrian (Ediacaran) organisms produced tough but non-mineralized outer shells,[3] while others, such as Cloudina, had a calcified exoskeleton,[6] but mineralized skeletons did not become common ...

My group have spent many hours in the field this week to survey the invertebrate communities in tide pools. We want to know if mobility is an important factor in allowing species to live in the high intertidal zone where they will be subject to warmer water, lower dissolved oxygen concentrations, and reduced access to open water for releasing their sperm and eggs. We reasoned that mobile species might be able to jump ship and change tide pool if their home gets too warm or begins to dry out. Sessile organisms that are fixed to the rock do not have that luxury and so we expect to see fewer mussels, anemones and barnacles in tide pools in the high intertidal compared to lower tide pools that are submerged for longer each tide. Larger tide pools are presumably less stressful and so we think we will find that sessile organisms are more common in the larger tide pools that we surveyed. A few more hours of data preparation and analysis and we will know if our suspicions were correct. We are eager to ...

Populations of the gastropod Nucella lapillus are polymorphic for shell color, with light-colored shells predominating on warmer, wave-protected shores and dark-colored shells limited primarily to cooler, wave-exposed shores. During thermal stress, darker shells attain higher body temperatures than lighter shells. These results suggest that heat stress may determine field distribution patterns. However, there is currently little evidence of physiological consequences of thermal stress in these organisms. Following the guiding hypothesis that heat stress leads to cellular energy depletion, we explored whether the central energy regulator AMP-activated Protein Kinase (AMPK) is activated by heat stress. We compared this response in both color morphs to the expression of a heat shock protein (Hsp70) in field and lab experiments. For the field experiments, two color morphs of snails were tethered to a rock and exposed to heat stress on two hot summer days. For the laboratory experiments, snails were exposed
Luminescence quenching at high dopant concentrations generally limits the dopant concentration to less than 1-5 mol% in lanthanide-doped materials, and this remains a major obstacle in designing materials with enhanced efficiency/brightness. In this work, we provide direct evidence that the major quenching process at high dopant concentrations is the energy migration to the surface (i.e., surface quenching) as opposed to the common misconception of cross-relaxation between dopant ions. We show that after an inert epitaxial shell growth, erbium (Er(3+)) concentrations as high as 100 mol% in NaY(Er)F4/NaLuF4 core/shell nanocrystals enhance the emission intensity of both upconversion and downshifted luminescence across different excitation wavelengths (980, 800, and 658 nm), with negligible concentration quenching effects ...

Robert Tucker Abbott (28 de septiembre 1919 - 3 de noviembre 1995) fue un conquiliólogo y malacólogo estadounidense autor de más de 30 libros sobre Malacología. Abbott fue uno de los más prominentes conquiliólogos de su tiempo y llevó la Conquiliología al público con sus trabajos American Seashells (en castellano, Conchas de Estados Unidos), 1974, Seashells of the World (en castellano, Conchas del mundo), 1962, and The Kingdom of the Seashell (en castellano, El reino de las Conchas), 1972. Fue un miembro activo de la American Malacological Union (en castellano, Unión Malacológica Americana) y de la Conchologists of America (en castellano, Conquiliólogos de América). Tucker Abbott nació en Watertown, Massachusetts el 28 de septiembre de 1919. Su interés por las conchas comenzó tempranamente, las recolectaba cuando era un niño y comenzó un museo con un amigo desde sus comienzos. Se graduó en la Universidad Harvard en 1942. Durante la segunda guerra mundial, fue primero un piloto ...

Its an old Chesapeake tradition, paving driveways, decorating gardens and the bases of rural mailboxes with oyster shells. But it may give way to a different purpose; helping to restore the Chesapeakes decimated oyster population. Heres why.. Oyster shells are just the thing an oyster farmer needs to spread across three or four acres of leased bottom in a Chesapeake tributary to form a bed for baby oysters to attach themselves and grow. But shells are hard to come by (see: tradition and decimated population), and expensive; $3 to $4 a bushel. And thats where homeowners like Jeff and Lisa Duffy come in.. ...
The SSNMR characteristics of healthy vertebrate bone are strongly conserved between anatomical location, species and age group. Thus, the 13C spectrum and 13C{31P} REDOR responses of trout bone are virtually indistinguishable from those of mammalian bone [4,8]. In contrast, the spectra of the two brachiopod materials are strikingly different from each other (except for the chitin components). Most of the differences relate to protein signals, which supports previous work demonstrating differing amino acid composition of the shells [22,23]. Unfortunately, in complex materials such as these it is very difficult to understand more about the protein constituents beyond the fact that they must differ significantly. Nevertheless, SSNMR provides a rapid spectral fingerprint by which qualitative differences between shell materials can be ascertained non-destructively. On the other hand, the fluoroapatitic mineral phases of each shell give XRPD patterns, and 31P SSNMR spectra (data not shown), which ...

Are you interested in what some of Sidneys fellows are researching? Have a quick look and see. There is also a link at the bottom to take you to the fellows research page.. Dr Rose Thorogood: In behavioural ecology, we study how behaviour evolves and is shaped by natural selection. However, in the face of rapid environmental change, animals often do best if they can change their behaviour accordingly. How do individuals evolve behaviour that is flexible, and what are the consequences of changes in one species behaviour for others? I research co-evolution: the actions of one species have evolutionary consequences for another, and I test how birds, in particular, acquire information about their environment to modify their behaviour. I am most interested in the evolutionary consequences of information use in the interactions between cuckoos (brood parasites) and their hosts, and predators and their prey, with a second important goal of using information ecology theory to solve conservation ...

Aim: Myocardial infarction is caused after impairment of heart wall muscle following an immense cell loss and also when the myocardial tissue is lacking the inherent capacity to regenerate for normal functioning of myocardium. An immediate challenge in cardiac regeneration is to devise a strategy that leads to a reproducible degree of cardiac differentiation. We have speculated that ex vivo pretreatment of adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) using 5-azacytidine and a suitable patterned nanofibrous construct could lead to cardiomyogenic differentiation and results in superior biological and functional effects on cardiac regeneration of infarcted myocardium. Materials & methods: Polyglycerol sebacate/gelatin fibers were fabricated by core/shell electrospinning with polyglycerol sebacate as the core material and gelatin as the shell material. Patterning of the core/shell fibers to form orthogonal and looped buckled nanostructures was achieved. Results: Results demonstrated that the buckled ...

A novel microcapsule of polysulfide sealant was designed and prepared by in situ polymerization technology with poly(urea-formaldehyde) resin(PUF) as shell material and polysulfide rubber as core material under the weak acid conditions. The microencapsulating process of core material, the morphology and chemical structure of microcapsule were monitored and characterized by surface observation and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy(FTIR) techniques, respectively. At the earlier stage of emulsification and dispersion, it was found that the particle diameter of dispersed polysulfide rubber decreased nonlinearly with the increase of PVA-124 concentration and PVA-124 was the best emulsifying agent among the various stabilizers studied. Through a large number of experiments, the following optimized conditions for the emulsification and dispersion of polysulfide rubber were obtained:using 1.5%(mass fraction) PVA solution as dispersion phase and PhMe as diluter, stirring speed 500 r/min and ...
The effect of the storage and release of dye on the structure of PMSQ can be compared by considering the stability of this polymer at the temperatures used in this work. PMSQ capsules were collected in a cross-linker (distilled water) and possessed good mechanical properties and chemical durability [24]. In addition, PFH is an unreactive, immiscible and inert liquid, and does not change the composition of the shell material [23]. After the release of dye molecules, no apparent difference in morphology can be observed within the experimental time span. Furthermore, it has been reported that glass-transition temperature of PMSQ polymers is in the range of 80-120°C [25,26], and its coefficient of thermal expansion is approximately 19 × 10−6°C [27] and on pyrolysis of PMSQ to ceramic, the first mass loss of PMSQ can be observed only at higher than 199°C [28].. Suspension of hollow capsules in a solution of the material to be encapsulated results in the yield spontaneous filling of the capsules ...

We asked our daughter where she wanted to go on vacation this summer. She very quickly replied she wanted to go back to Elmos beach to swim in the pool. We were floored to say the least so I said Where is Elmos beach? She thought for a few seconds and said You know Mommy, where I had lunch with Big Bird....can I have more applesauce please?

On a dreary still-winter, not-quite-spring morning as we drove to school his musical composition began with the long sad walk down the Via Dolorosa, how the mean people put Jesus on a cross and stuck him with a spear, how a lady named Mary came to see him (pause, right mom, her name was Mary?), how the angel Gabrielle came and said dont be sad the Holy Spirit took him away, then Gabrielle (thats not a typo - - he INSISTS the angel is a girl!) left and went to another Mary and told her to name her baby Jesus but they went to the town and everyone was closed so they found that place with hay and made a bed for her baby, then Joseph went to Egypt where the Pharaoh was mean and made the people slaves but the momma put the baby in the basket and the princess saved him and he grew up and went and saw the bush on fire and God said "TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES, THIS IS HOLY GROUND" so he did and he heard God say I AM. So he took off his shoes and went and saved the people and they came to the sea and Moses ...
As you know, I had a simple surgery 2 hrs from home, Jun 8th where my throat was to be dilated and the muscles cut. Instead it became an open surgery when the surgeon nicked my spleen and it was removed. According to my friends, I was perfectly fine, even though I ended up being admitted due to the spleen. I joked on the phone and was online. Some point that evening I went into septic shock where it was discovered my bowel had been nicked as well. Due to my connective tissue disorder, 12 surgeries were needed to completely repair the bowel, and my abdomen was finally closed on the 12th one. Multiple friends and family came to visit, including the priest and deacon from my church. I have no recollection of any of this, and didnt really come to until July. I woke to find myself with a trach and completely dependent on the nursing staff for every single need. Its a terrifying and humiliating situation. Plus I was dependent on the vent as well. Apparently I had multiple bouts of sepsis and septic ...

Most living organisms need to mobilise their propagules to avoid inter-specific competition, escape suboptimal or poor local conditions and colonise suitably remote sites. Dispersal is particularly challenging for sessile organisms, such as plants that typically get dispersed across the landscape by disseminating their seeds. Dispersal has long fascinated ecologists and distinguished naturalists, such as Darwin and Wallace, who have invoked dispersal and migration processes to explain biogeographic patterns.. In an increasingly managed and fragmented world, constrained plant dispersal ability limits the chances of plant populations to persist and expand. We already have empirical evidence on the important role that local adaptation plays in organisms to cope with climate change, either through genetic or phenotypic changes, but we do not fully understand the impact of modifying the dispersal ability of plant populations to keep pace with fast global change. This was one of the fruitful ...
Wednesday began with putting the finishing touches on our presentations. The first group, mid-high community structure examined upwelling along the coast combined with bathymetry may have led to bottom-up controls effecting the primary cover of sessile organisms at Strawberry Hill and Boiler Bay. The second group, low zone community structure looked at the richness and distribution between exposed and protected areas of the two sites. The next group focused on sea star wasting disease (SSWD). They concentrated on symptoms of SSWD and how SSWD has affected this years cohort, including the abundant recruits. Last but not least, group four fixated on the size of feeding whelks and compared the proportion of whelks feeding between zones (low, mid, high ...
Plants are sessile organisms that constantly have to respond to changes in environmental conditions such as biotic or abiotic stress. In the case of biotic stresses, plants have adapted the capacity to recognize pathogens through MAMPs via specific receptors. The multi-faceted responses of plants to pathogens have been examined extensively and these studies have revealed that receptor-mediated pathogen recognition triggers MAP kinase signaling cascades, which, through the activation and repression of large gene sets, ultimately result in the establishment of MAMP-triggered immunity.. Previous studies have identified several transcription factors targeted by MAP kinases. For example, the bZIP (basic leucine zipper) transcription factor VIP1 (VirE1-INTERACTING PROTEIN 1) is specifically phosphorylated by MPK3 upon flg22 treatment and activates a number of defense-related genes such as PR1 (PATHOGENESIS-RELATED 1) [10, 18]. However, extensive changes in the transcriptional program of cells likely ...

The tocophore and veliger larval stages are neutrally bouyant (i.e. will not pellet when centrifuged). In order to separate them from the RNA Later, I used a fine mesh (dont know mesh size; bag was labeled "Unknown") as a "guard" between the pipette tip and the larvae. Removed RNA Later from those two groups in this fashion. However, a significant portion of the larvae in these tubes adhered to the outside of the mesh. I left the mesh "guard" in the tube, added 1mL of TriReagent and vortexed. The mesh quickly dissolved in the TriReagent, creating a milky white mix.. For the settlers samples, there was a such a large pellet already in the existing tubes, I just took ~75uL of this material, transferred to a clean tube and added 1mL of TriReagent. However, most of the debris that I transferred dissolved extremely quickly. I was expecting there to more insoluble "debris", because marine bivalve larval shells generally dont readily dissolve in the presence of TriReagent. So, I suspect that much of ...

A blood collecting bag is clamped along its peripheral edges between two shells. Inlet and outlet ports are formed in one side edge of the bag and are also clamped between the shells. The shells form a vacuum chamber around the bag with the bag serving as a sealing gasket and also house a liquid trap connected to the gas outlet from the bag. Pressure between the two shells is equalized through a vent hole formed through the bag. The bag comprises a membrane forming front and rear faces joined along peripheral edges. The disposable bag includes a laminated filter which lies flat between the front and rear faces of the bag when the bag is collapsed. The filter is sealed between the two faces of the bag along one edge thereof and is joined to the rear face of the bag along its opposite edge to define inlet and outlet chambers. Preferably, the shells are of clear plastic molded to conform to the shape of the expanded bag within the chamber.

AbraPlata Resource Corp. (TSXV:ABRA) has defined a gold-rich zone in the lower part of the Oculto deposit in the southern area of the Diablillos property (Figure 1). The gold-rich zone (Figure 2), measuring approximately 300m by 50m, is centered around drill hole DDH-97-007A, which intersected 2.7 g/t Au over 108m from 197.2m down the hole. This interval includes 16.7 g/t Au and 39.2 g/t Ag over 10.6m from 210m to 220.6m. The company is going to continue to test this zone with further drilling. The newly identified targets indicates further potential to expand the resource base at Oculto which already includes 1.92 Moz AuEq. AbraPlata currently trades at a significant discount to peers at $5/oz (peers $29/oz). We continue to believe that the current valuation does not reflect the current value of the companys resources at the Diablillos project nor does it reflect the exploration upside of the property. We expect continued exploration drilling, along with the pending PEA in November to be ...

A composite sample weighing 55 kilograms was prepared from drill core selected from several representative drill holes from all mineralized zones...
As part of their preclinical training, dental students work on phantom heads when practicing many of the skills that they will later need when treating patients. However, drilling holes in plastic teeth is not particularly realistic. For several years, staff at ACTA have been working on Simodont Dental Trainer, a virtual simulator for teaching skills to students. The device has been developed in a step-by-step process, in partnership with Moog FCS, a specialist in the development of flight simulators. ACTA and Moog use Simodont Dental Trainer to simulate realistic dental cavities, which can then be treated in the simulator. ...

Each day now, with each trip down the driveway, a few more seeds fly furiously from the dashboard. With every corner I turn, several more shift inside, finding their way into the airstream, and onto the lap of any passenger. Most of those already thrown free and scattered across the interior surfaces have been reclaimed or eaten on the spot. Newly split, silvery shells are left each morning to be discarded in my cup holder and seatbelt buckle. The nest has never been found, and I know that eventually every well-placed seed will be retrieved and the showers of sunflowers will cease. But I keep an eye on my rear-view mirror, just waiting for that little whiskered face to appear. Added to my ever growing list of odd jobs-- driver, to one well-fed driveway mouse ...

I have also used DNA at a concentration of 100 ng/ul because that was what Keck wanted for GoldenGate, so then I used 2.5 ul DNA and 10.5 ul water.) Do this in a 96-well plate. Pipette the DNA into the wells and then add 10 ul of master mix to everything. Pick one well that will not have DNA in it. This will be an important control later on to demonstrate that this library was not contaminated with another library (which will have a different empty well). Run the Digest program on the PCR machine: 3 hours at 37°C, then 20 minutes at 80°C. Using a multichannel pipette, add 1.5 μL of 0.1 μM PstI adapters to their corresponding wells on the digestion plate. (Do add the adapter corresponding to the well that has no DNA in it.)

Terrestrial hermit crabs begin their lives in the sea but, through a series of molts, develop the ability to breathe air. After the last developmental molt, the young hermit crab will drown if left in water for an indefinite period of time. Their link with the sea is never entirely broken, however, as hermit crabs carry a small amount of water in their shells at all times to keep their abdomen moist and their modified gills hydrated.. For some larger marine hermit crab species, having one or more sea anemones (a group of water dwelling, predatory animals of the order Actiniaria) growing on the shell can be very useful, because the anemones tend to scare away fish and other marine predators which might otherwise attack the crab. The sea anemone also benefits because it is well-positioned to consume loose fragments of the hermit crabs meals. Because of this mutualism (a biological interaction between individuals of two different species), sea anemones can be, and sometimes are, transferred to a ...

As sessile organisms, plants have evolved sophisticated mechanisms to circumvent the adverse environment. The phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) is a key inducer of plant responses to abiotic stress. Much effort has been made to decipher the mechanism underlying ABA signal transduction, in which posttranscriptional regulation has been shown to be one of the most important modes of regulation (Chinnusamy et al., 2008). Mutants of several components of the microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis machinery, such as hyponastic leaves1, serrate, dicer-like1, hua enhancer1 (hen1), and cap-binding protein (cbp20 and cbp80), are hypersensitive to ABA (Lu and Fedoroff, 2000; Hugouvieux et al., 2001; Kim et al., 2008; Zhang et al., 2008). These mutants, except hen1, were shown to have lower miRNA levels but higher primary miRNA precursor (pri-miRNA) levels compared with wild-type plants (Laubinger et al., 2008). In cbp20 and cbp80 mutants, ABA induction of miR159 was delayed and the miR159 target transcripts, which ...
Sexual size dimorphism (SSD) arises when the net effects of natural and sexual selection on body size differ between the sexes. Quantitative SSD variation between taxa is common, but directional intraspecific SSD reversals are rare. We combined micro- and macroevolutionary approaches to study geographic SSD variation in closely related black scavenger flies. Common garden experiments revealed stark intra- and interspecific variation: Sepsis biflexuosa is monomorphic across the Holarctic, while S. cynipsea (only in Europe) consistently exhibits female-biased SSD. Interestingly, S. neocynipsea displays contrasting SSD in Europe (females larger) and North America (males larger), a pattern opposite to the geographic reversal in SSD of S. punctum documented in a previous study. In accordance with the differential equilibrium model for the evolution of SSD, the intensity of sexual selection on male size varied between continents (weaker in Europe), whereas fecundity selection on female body size did ...
New developments in high-resolution, low accelaration voltage electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) enable us to resolve and quantify the co-orientation of nanocrystals constituting biological carbonate crystals with a scan step resolution of 125 nm. This allows the investigation of internal structures in carbonate tablets and tower biocrystals in the nacre of mollusc shells, and it provides details on the calcite-aragonite polymorph interface in bivalves. Within the aragonite tablets of Mytilus edulis nacre we find a mesoscale crystallographic mosaic structure with a misorientation distribution of 2 full width at half maximum. Selective etching techniques with critical point drying reveal an organic matrix network inside the nacre tablets. The size scales of the visible aragonite tablet subunits and nanoparticles correspond to those of the open pore system in the organic matrix network. We further observe by EBSD that crystal co-orientation spans over tablet boundaries and forms composite ...
The potential risk through ingestion of microcystins (MC) in contaminated mollusks has not been well studied. The present paper studied seasonal changes of MC content (determined by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry) in various organs of three species of bivalves (Cristaria plicata, Hyriopsis cumingii, and Lamprotula leai) in Lake Taihu, China, where toxic cyanobacterial blooms occurred. Coinciding with peaks of seston MC (maximum, 5.7 mu g/L) and MC in cyanobacterial blooms (maximum, 0.534 mg/g), most organs showed sharp MC peaks during the summer, indicating both fast uptake and fast depuration by bivalves. Because hepatopancreas and intestine had considerably higher MC content than other organs, they are the most dangerous for human consumption. Both the present and previous studies show that the hepatopancreatic MC and total tissue MC often are correlated in various aquatic invertebrates. During the peak of the cyanobacterial blooms, C. plicata had higher hepatopancreatic MC content ...
Invasive species are a major threat to global biodiversity due to the competitive and predatory pressures they exert on indigenous species, and the alterations they cause to native ecosystems. Within New Zealand, introduced mammalian species have had significant impacts on native fauna and flora, and are responsible for population declines and extinctions. One of the most devastating invasive species in New Zealand is the Australian common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula Kerr). The behavioural flexibility and generalist lifestyle of this species enables it to exploit a wide range of food sources and habitats, including urban areas. For an invasive species to be effectively managed, knowledge regarding its spatial ecology and population genetics is essential. Possums have not been studied within urban New Zealand environments, but it is well documented that urban-based populations of animals can behave and use resources differently than in their native habitats. This study aimed to ...
