Interactions Between Sleep, Macrophages and Gut Microbiota of Drosophila melanogaster
The study of the gut microbiota has taken great interest. With advances in technology of sequencing and computer analysis, it has opened great opportunities to study bacteria like never before. The presences of gut microbes ...
Disentangling Vine-Invaded Tropical Landscapes: From Individual Vine Patches to Vine Networks
Vines, like their woody counterparts, lianas, are increasing in abundance in several parts of the World (Warshauer et al. 1983, Mackey et al. 1996) including both tropical (Shrestha and Dangol 2014) and temperate regions ...
Comparing Proteome Selection Pressure Among Prokaryotes and its Effects on Translational Selection
Factors such as effective population size (Ne) and proteome size modulate the interaction of selection, drift, mutation and recombination for guiding the genome evolution. Prokaryotic genomes are useful for studying these ...
Reproductive Phenology, Fecundity, Survival and Growth of Puerto Rican Anolis Lizards in the Context of Climate Warming
Anolis lizards are vulnerable to climate warming because, like other ectotherms, their basic physiological functions (e.g., locomotion, growth and reproduction) are strongly influenced by environmental temperature. However, ...
The Reproductive Biology of Zamia (Cycadales: Zamiaceae) in Puerto Rico: Implications for Patterns of Genetic Structure and Species Conservation
dc.description.abstract Variation in plant reproductive success is affected by how ecological conditions interact with a plant’s sexual, mating, and pollination systems. Long-term viability of natural populations is dependent ...
