Duplication of a single myhz1.1 gene facilitated the ability of goldfish (Carassius auratus) to alter fast muscle contractile properties with seasonal temperature change (2018-12-04) - Journal articleSeasonal temperature changes markedly effect the swimming performance of some cyprinid fish acutely tested at different temperatures, involving a restructuring of skeletalmuscle phenotype including changes in contractile ...
Weather-driven change in primary productivity explains variation in the amplitude of two herbivore population cycles in a boreal system (2018-02) - Journal articleVertebrate populations throughout the circumpolar north often exhibit cyclic dynamics, and predation is generally considered to be a primary driver of these cycles in a variety of herbivore species. However, weather and ...
(2018-05-21) - Journal articleSampling at four salmon aquaculture sites along the west coast of Scotland has identified short-lived aggregations of planktonic hydrozoans (>280 individuals m−3), here termed blooms. Several such blooms were linked with ...
