The Hox-TALE has been wagging for a long time
(2014-03-18) - Journal item,
Hox and TALE proteins interact in a sea anemone, just as they do in flies and mice, indicating that the Hox-TALE system originated very early in animal evolution.
Open questions : some unresolved issues in biodiversity
(2013-12-06) - Journal item,
Mechanisms of gene duplication and translocation and progress towards understanding their relative contributions to animal genome evolution
(2012) - Journal item,
Duplication of genetic material is clearly a major route to genetic change, with consequences for both evolution and disease. A variety of forms and mechanisms of duplication are recognised, operating across the scales of ...
Time is of the essence for ParaHox homeobox gene clustering.
(2013-06) - Journal item,
ParaHox genes, and their evolutionary sisters the Hox genes, are integral to patterning the anterior-posterior axis of most animals. Like the Hox genes, ParaHox genes can be clustered and exhibit the phenomenon of colinearity ...
The evolutionary ecology of the Lygaeidae
(2014-06) - Journal item,
The Lygaeidae (sensu lato) are a highly successful family of true bugs found worldwide, yet many aspects of their ecology and evolution remain obscure or unknown. While a few species have attracted considerable attention ...
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 ...
50-Year Anniversary of Papers by Cormack, Jolly and Seber
(2016-05) - Journal item,
Evolution of homeobox gene clusters in animals : the Giga-cluster and primary versus secondary clustering
(2016-04-14) - Journal item,
The Hox gene cluster has been a major focus in evolutionary developmental biology. This is because of its key role in patterning animal development and widespread examples of changes in Hox genes being linked to the evolution ...
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. ...
