    • Trophic Interactions in South West Atlantic Seabird Colonies 

      Van Buren, Amy Noel (2013-04-17)
      Seabirds act as both predators and as prey. In the marine environment, seabird foraging patterns can reflect ocean conditions. On land, their breeding success reflects constraints placed on seabirds by central-place foraging, ...
    • Tuning the auxin transcriptional response 

      Pierre-Jerome, Edith
      Auxin is involved in almost every aspect of plant growth and development. How auxin orchestrates such diverse and context-specific responses has been a longstanding question. The work presented here evaluates the potential ...
    • Vernal migratory behavior in captive white-crowned sparrows, Zonotrichia leucophrys 

      Coverdill, Alexander J., 1980- (2008)
      Avian migration, the biannual movement of birds from non-breeding to breeding grounds, is a global phenomenon that has fascinated scientists for centuries. The presence of seasonal unrest in caged birds coincident with ...
    • The what, when & how of seedling growth regulation. 

      Lilley, Jodi Lorraine Stewart (2013-07-23)
      Photomorphogenesis has two stages. First, seedlings detect light and open their embryonic leaves (cotyledons). Second, seedlings optimize their light environment by regulated elongation of the embryonic stem (hypocotyl). ...
    • Wing flexibility and design for animal flight 

      Combes, Stacey A. (Stacey Anne), 1971- (2002)
      The wings of flying animals change shape dramatically during flight, yet the control and effects of these shape changes have received little attention. In Chapter 1, I discuss the potential effects of wing flexibility and ...
