    • On the social implications of collective adaptive systems 

      Bucchiarone, Antonio; D'Angelo, Mirko; Pianini, Danilo; Cabri, Giacomo; De Sanctis, Martina; Viroli, Mirko; Casadei, Roberto; Dobson, Simon (2020-09-22) - Journal article
      Many Collect ive Adaptive Systems (CASs) exist in nature: think of ant colonies, where large collectives of ants operate autonomously but interact with other ants and the environment to provide resilient global behaviors ...
    • Conditioned variation in heart rate during static breath-holds in the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) 

      Fahlman, Andreas; Cozzi, Bruno; Manley, Mercy; Jabas, Sandra; Malik, Marek; Blawas, Ashley; Janik, Vincent M. (2020-11-24) - Journal article
      Previous reports suggested the existence of direct somatic motor control over heart rate (fH) responses during diving in some marine mammals, as the result of a cognitive and/or learning process rather than being a reflexive ...
    • Arctic seals as tracers of environmental and ecological change 

      de la Vega, Camille; Mahaffey, Claire; Tuerena, Robyn E.; Yurkowski, David J.; Ferguson, Steven H.; Stenson, Garry B.; Nordøy, Erling S.; Haug, Tore; Biuw, Martin; Smout, Sophie; Hopkins, Jo; Tagliabue, Alessandro; Jeffreys, Rachel M. (2020-11-12) - Journal article
      Knowledge of species trophic position (TP) is an essential component of ecosystem management. Determining TP from stable nitrogen isotopes (δ15N) in predators requires understanding how these tracers vary across environments ...
    • Comparison of ePlex respiratory pathogen panel with laboratory-developed real-time PCR assays for detection of respiratory pathogens 

      Nijhuis, R. H.T.; Guerendiain, D.; Claas, E. C.J.; Templeton, K. E. (2017-06) - Journal article
      Infections of the respiratory tract can be caused by a diversity of pathogens, both viral and bacterial. Rapid microbiological diagnosis ensures appropriate antimicrobial therapy as well as effective implementation of ...
    • Comprehensive molecular testing for respiratory pathogens in community-acquired pneumonia 

      Gadsby , NJ; Russell , CD; McHugh, Martin Patrick; Mark , H; Conway Morris, A; Laurenson , IF; Hill , AT; Templeton , KE (2016-04-01) - Journal article
      Background. The frequent lack of a microbiological diagnosis in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) impairs pathogen-directed antimicrobial therapy. This study assessed the use of comprehensive multibacterial, multiviral ...
