Experimental field studies to measure behavioral responses of cetaceans to sonar
(2016-12-06) - Journal item,
Substantial recent progress has been made in directly measuring behavioral responses of free-ranging marine mammals to sound using controlled exposure experiments. Many studies were motivated by concerns about observed and ...
The Deepwater Horizon oil spill marine mammal injury assessment
(2017-01-31) - Journal item,
From 2010 to 2015, a team of scientists studied how the BP Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill affected marine mammals inhabiting the northern Gulf of Mexico, as part of the DWH Natural Resource Damage Assessment process. ...
Marine seismic surveys and ocean noise : time for coordinated and prudent planning
(2015-09) - Journal item,
Marine seismic surveys use intense (eg >= 230 decibel [dB] root mean square [RMS]) sound impulses to explore the ocean bottom for hydrocarbon deposits, conduct geophysical research, and establish resource claims under the ...
Tunicates push the limits of animal evo-devo
(2011-01-20) - Journal item,
The phylum to which humans belong, Chordata, takes its name from one of the major shared derived features of the group, the notochord. All chordates have a notochord, at least during embryogenesis, and there is little doubt ...
Updating neuropathology and neuropharmacology of monoaminergic systems
(2016-07) - Journal item,
Meet the neighbours: mapping local protein interactomes by proximity-dependent labelling with BioID
(2016-10-04) - Journal item,
Proximity-dependent biotin identification (BioID) is a recently developed method that allows the identification of proteins in the close vicinity of a protein of interest in living cells. BioID relies on fusion of the ...
Willing to be involved in cancer
(2016-07-18) - Journal item,
Genome sequencing is now a common procedure, but prior to this, screening experiments using protein baits was one of the routinely used methods that, occasionally, allowed the identification of new gene products. One such ...
The origin of the Hox/ParaHox genes, the Ghost Locus hypothesis and the complexity of the first animal
(2016-09-05) - Journal item,
A key aim in evolutionary biology is to deduce ancestral states in order to better understand the evolutionary origins of clades of interest and the diversification process(es) that have elaborated them. These ancestral ...
Genetic tools for studying adaptation and the evolution of behavior
(2002-12) - Journal item,
The rapid expansion of genomic and molecular genetic techniques in model organisms, and the application of these techniques to organisms that are less well studied genetically, make it possible to understand the genetic ...
Organizing, supporting and linking the world marine biodiversity research community
(2015-02-10) - Journal item,
