Phylogenetic analysis of phenotypic characters of Tunicata supports basal Appendicularia and monophyletic Ascidiacea
With approximately 3000 marine species, Tunicata represents the most disparate subtaxon of Chordata. Molecular phylogenetic studies support Tunicata as sister taxon to Craniota, rendering it pivotal to understanding craniate ...
Farming Systems Facing Global Challenges:Capacities and Strategies. Volume 2.
Proceedings of the 11th European IFSA Symposium, 1-4 April 2014 in Berlin, Germany
IFSA Europe (www.ifsa-europe.org) is a platform for European Farming systems research. With the 11th European IFSA symposium we sought manifold answers that deal with challenges in an integrative, interconnected way on ...
Personality-driven life history trade-offs differ in two subpopulations of free-ranging predators
Consistent individual differences in behaviour (i.e. personality) can be explained in an evolutionary context if they are favoured by life history trade‐offs as conceptualized in the pace‐of‐life syndrome (POLS) hypothesis. ...
Size‐selective mortality induces evolutionary changes in group risk‐taking behaviour and the circadian system in a fish
Intensive and trait-selective mortality of fish and wildlife can cause evolutionary changes in a range of life-history and behavioural traits. These changes might in turn alter the circadian system due to co-evolutionary ...
Effects of Food Provisioning on the Daily Ration and Dive Site Use of Great Hammerhead Sharks, Sphyrna mokarran
Wildlife provisioning is popular, economically valuable, and a rapidly growing part of marine tourism, with great potential to benefit conservation. However, it remains controversial due to limited understanding of its ...
Distribution of the cholinergic nuclei in the brain of the weakly electric fish, Apteronotus leptorhynchus: Implications for sensory processing
Acetylcholine acts as a neurotransmitter/neuromodulator of many central nervous system processes such as learning and memory, attention, motor control, and sensory processing. The present study describes the spatial ...
