(2015-06-19)Whether phenotypic plasticity can accelerate evolution is often debated. Transgenerational plasticity (parental effects) are a particularly potent form of plasticity that occurs when the environment experienced by a parent ...
(2015-07-16)Investigations into animal behavior can have two different forms of inquiry. Proximate questions are concerned with how a behavior evolved and the mechanisms underlying it, while ultimate questions are concerned with the ...
(1999)In this dissertation, I have explored this question experimentally. My approach was to obtain plants with NO3- reduction mostly in the roots or mostly in the leaves, measure growth and biomass allocation parameters of those ...
(2008)In conclusion, the many independent origins of caste in the social insects likely resulted from variation in the proximate factors that can yield phenotypic differences (e.g., larval diet, genetic variation, social regulation) ...
In Vivo Interaction Between Health Food Supplements and Chemotherapeutic Agents on DNA Damage and Cell Production (2004)As expected, both Ara-C and MMS treated mice had DNA and cellular damage. SW, FL, Soy and RM10 were found to cause alterations of DNA and/or cellular damage. SW affected to increase genotoxicity of bone marrow while the ...
