Variation in pigmentation gene expression is associated with distinct aposematic color morphs in the poison frog Dendrobates auratus
Abstract Background Color and pattern phenotypes have clear implications for survival and reproduction in many species. However, the mechanisms that produce this coloration ...
The variability of song variability in zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata) populations
Birdsong is a classic example of a learned social behaviour. Song behaviour is also influenced by genetic factors, and understanding the relative contributions of genetic and environmental influences remains a major goal. ...
“The Ingenious Unravelling of Evidence”: Empathy, Extinction, and Wells’s The Croquet Player
While we are increasingly challenged to imagine a world without humans, we have also become increasingly attentive to the subject of empathy, in popular culture, the humanities, and the sciences. In The Time Machine (1895), ...
Angioedema after thrombolysis with tissue plasminogen activator: An airway emergency.
Recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA), an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of plasminogen to plasmin resulting in fibrinolysis, is used for the treatment of acute ischemic strokes. The use of this medication ...
Sustainability and OHS Global Reporting in Petrochemical Industries: The GRI Reporting Standard and Corporate Social Responsibility
(East Carolina University, 2019-06-14)
Sustainability reporting, an aspect of corporate social responsibility (i.e., CSR), is the practice of measuring, disclosing, and being accountable to internal and external stakeholders for organizational performance and ...
Differential gene expression and gene variants drive color and pattern development in divergent color morphs of a mimetic poison frog
Evolutionary biologists have long investigated the ecological contexts, evolutionary forces, and proximate mechanisms that produce the diversity of animal coloration we see in the natural world. In aposematic species, color ...
