• Evolution
  • The adaptation to wood-boring and wood-feeding activities in beetle larvae was reached independently by phyletic lines not closely related, as a convergent evolution due to feeding behaviour. (blogspot.com)
  • regulation
  • The global hypothesis was that DHS mediates ImP-induced regulation of BFF and promotes osteogenic adaptation, which in turn mitigates bone deterioration under disuse condition. (suny.edu)
  • Abiotic Stress Adaptation in Plants presents a holistic view of the general principles of stress perception, signal transduction and regulation of gene expression. (nhbs.com)
  • Collectively, these results demonstrate that Mlip is required for normal integration of physiological stress (postnatal cardiac growth, isoproterenol-induced hypertrophy) through the regulation of the AMPK/Akt/mTOR pathway to maintain cardiac homeostasis in the adult heart. (ahajournals.org)
  • survive
  • Xerophytes may use water from their own storage, allocate water specifically to sites of new tissue growth, or lose less water to the atmosphere and so convert a greater proportion of water in the soil to growth, or have other adaptations to manage water supply and enable them to survive. (wikipedia.org)
  • physiology
  • The papers explore the physiology and biochemistry of animal adaptation and ecology and cover topics ranging from amino acid transport and metabolism during osmotic shock to the role of organic compounds in osmoregulation in plants and animals. (elsevier.com)
  • Plants
  • This volume illuminates how plants that are bombarded by diverse and changing environmental stimuli, undergo appropriate physiological alterations that enable their survival. (platekompaniet.no)
  • Further, chapters in Abiotic Stress Adaptation in Plants analyze not only model systems but extrapolate interpretations obtained from models to crops. (nhbs.com)
  • Plants that live under arctic conditions also have a need for xerophytic adaptations, since water is unavailable for uptake when the ground is frozen. (wikipedia.org)
  • regulatory
  • Among gene families that demonstrate exceptional expansions or show signatures of strong natural selection, immune function and musculoskeletal patterning genes are consistently over-represented.Conclusions: Our comparative genomic analyses indicate that common vertebrate regulatory networks, some of which have analogs in human diseases, are often involved in the western painted turtle's extraordinary physiological capacities. (carleton.ca)
  • process
  • In the law of patents-grants by the government to inventors for the exclusive right to manufacture, use, or market inventions for a term of years-adaptation denotes a category of patentable inventions, which entails the application of an existing product or process to a new use, accompanied by the exercise of inventive faculties. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Allostasis is the process of achieving stability, or homeostasis, through physiological or behavioral change. (wikipedia.org)
  • Study
  • In the 1820s, the French physiologist Henri Milne-Edwards introduced the notion of physiological division of labor, which allowed to "compare and study living things as if they were machines created by the industry of man. (wikipedia.org)
  • effect
  • The effect of seawater adaptation on the phosphatidyl-choline metabolism in the eel is also considered, along with evaporative water loss in anuran amphibians. (elsevier.com)
