A mechanistic model for understanding invasions: using the environment as a predictor of population successDownload
Aim We set out to develop a temperature-and salinity-dependent mechanistic population model for copepods that can be used to understand the role of environmental parameters in population growth or decline. Models are an important tool for understanding the dynamics of invasive species; our model...

A microsatellite polymorphism in the gamma interferon gene is associated with resistance to gastrointestinal nematodes in a naturally-parasitized population of Soay sheepDownload
Abstract: Free-living Soay sheep (Ovis aries) on the island of Hirta, St Kilda, Scotland, are naturally parasitized bq gastrointestinal nematodes, predominantly Teladorsagia circumcincta. In this paper we show that reduced faecal egg counts (FEC) are associated with an allele at a microsatellite...
The forage maturation hypothesis (FMH) proposes that ungulate migration is driven by selection for high forage quality. Because quality declines with plant maturation, but intake declines at low biomass, ungulates are predicted to select for intermediate forage biomass to maximize energy intake...
Background: Voltage-gated ion channels are membrane proteins containing a selective pore that allows permeable ions to transit the membrane in response to a change in the transmembrane voltage. The typical selectivity filter in potassium channels is formed by a tetrameric arrangement of the...
A small permineralized osmundaceous stem has been collected from marine sediments of the Early Cretaceous (Aptian), Upper Chickabally Member of the Budden Canyon Formation near Ono, California. The specimen, 8.5 cm long and 5.4 cm wide, represents a stem surrounded by a mantle of stipular leaf...
A new species of Pinus Subgenus Pinus Subsection Contortae from Pliocene sediments of Ch'ijee's Bluff, Yukon Territory, Canada.Download
Three structurally preserved conifer ovulate cones are described from Pliocene sediments at Ch’ijee’s Bluff on the Porcupine River, near Old Crow, Yukon Territory, Canada. Cones are ovoid to conical, symmetrical, 3.4–4.4 cm long and 2.8–3.4 cm wide, with helically arranged cone-scale complexes....
A new species of Pityostrobus from the Lower Cretaceous of California and its bearing on the evolution of Pinaceae.Download
A single cylindrical, abraded cone specimen has been found associated with ammonites of the Lower Cretaceous Budden Canyon Formation near Ono, California. The specimen was embedded in bioplastic and sectioned using the cellulose acetate peel technique. The pith is composed of parenchyma and...
A new species of extinct conifer plants, Emporia royalii sp. nov. Hernandez-Castillo, Stockey, Mapes et Rothwell (Emporiaceae: Voltziales), is described from the rich fossil biota of the Late Pennsylvanian, Hamilton Quarry, Kansas. This conifer has lateral plagiotropic branches with simple and...
