Effects of temperature on gene expression in embryos of the coral Montastraea faveolata
Coral reefs are expected to be severely impacted by rising seawater temperatures associated with climate change. This study used cDNA microarrays to investigate transcriptional effects of thermal stress in embryos of the ...
Commentary on "Mounds from the Merin lagoon basin: Time, space and society"(Review) [Comentario sobre "Montículos de la cuenca de la laguna Merín: Tiempo, espacio, y sociedad"]
In the appendix of his recent paper, Bracco (2006:511-540) made several comments and misinterpretations regarding the interdisciplinary scientific evidence produced by our team at the Los Ajos site in southeastern Uruguay. ...
Annotated bibliography of the Florida applesnail, Pomacea paludosa (Say) (Gastropoda: Ampullariidae), from 1824 to 1999
The Florida applesnail, Pomacea paludosa (Say, 1829), inhabits freshwater rivers, lakes, and wetlands of the southeastern United States and Cuba, where it is prey to several species of birds, reptiles, and fish, particularly ...

Climate Change and Trophic Response of the Antarctic Bottom Fauna
Background As Earth warms, temperate and subpolar marine species will increasingly shift their geographic ranges poleward. The endemic shelf fauna of Antarctica is especially vulnerable to climate-mediated biological ...
Amazonian exploitation revisited: Ecological asymmetry and the policy pendulum
The influence of pre-Columbian human populations on Amazonian ecosystems is being actively debated. The long-standing view that Amazonia was only minimally impacted by human actions has been challenged, and a new paradigm ...

The WARPS survey. VII. The WARPS-II cluster catalog
We present the galaxy cluster catalog from the second, larger phase of the Wide Angle ROSAT Pointed Survey (WARPS), an X-ray selected survey for high-redshift galaxy clusters. WARPS is among the largest deep X-ray cluster ...
Morphology predicts suction feeding performance in centrarchid fishes
Suction feeding fish differ in their capacity to generate subambient pressure while feeding, and these differences appear to relate to morphological variation. We developed a morphological model of force transmission in ...
Hubble Space Telescope Near-Infrared snapshot survey of 3CR radio source counterparts. II. An atlas and inventory of the host galaxies, mergers, and companions
We present the second part of an H-band (1.6 μm) "atlas" of z < 0.3 3CR radio galaxies, using the Hubble Space Telescope Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (HST NICMOS2). We present new imaging for 21 ...
