Submerged macrophytes in Big Spring Creek, WI: Distribution and influence on phosphorus dynamics
Submerged macrophytes affect many aspects of lotic ecosystems, including nutrient dynamics. We performed longitudinal vegetation surveys to describe the distribution of macrophytes in Big Spring Creek, Wisconsin. We also ...
Determining the impacts of residential lakeshore development and various physical factors on largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) growth rates
Development of residential lakeshore properties can have several effects on aquatic ecosystems including the thinning of littoral coarse woody habitat. Previous studies have shown that reduction of littoral coarse woody ...
The role of offspring in mitigating extreme stress in lactating female mice
Mothers of many species find great comfort in their offspring, which in turn has been found to alleviate mild stress in the mother. In the face of a life-threatening event, however, do offspring still act as effective ...

LEF/TCF family transcription factors are important in the upregulation and restricted expression of zic genes in the dorsal neural tube
A central question in biology is how different cell-types arise from an initially one-celled embryo to form an organism. Many cellular differences arise through differential gene expression in space and time via the action ...
