Genetic and genomic insights into the successional patterns and reproduction methods of fire-associated Morchella
Burn morels are among the earliest-emerging post-fire organisms in western North American montane coniferous forests, occurring in large numbers the year after a fire. Despite their significant economic and ecological ...
Influence of flooding, gap size, and surrounding forest characteristics on the fate of UMRS floodplain forest canopy gaps
A natural loss of forest canopy creates gaps that can serve as locations for the growth of new cohorts of seedlings. However, adverse environmental conditions (e.g. change in flood regime, invasive species) may inhibit ...
Calcium imaging in C2C12 muscle myocytes to examine the impact of calmodulin mutations on cell signaling
The oxidative stress theory of aging theorizes inadequate redox signaling as a leading cause of aging phenotype. Current studies depict protein oxidation in skeletal muscle as a contributing cause to sarcopenia and other ...
Using Chlamydomonas to identify factors involved in acclimation to limited iron
The means for populations of organisms to be able to cope with changes to survive and reproduce have been demonstrated for many years through the various mechanisms of evolution. Organisms must acclimate to changes to ...
Seasonal differences in brain anatomy and cell proliferation in hibernating thirteen-lined ground squirrels (Ictidomys tridecemlineatus).
Hibernation is characterized by cyclical periods of rest (torpor) and arousal (IBAs). During torpor, neurons in non-vital regions in the brain disconnect from one another and reconnect upon arousal into IBA. However, neurons ...
Improving habitat: periphyton and macroinvertebrate colonization on large wood in Pool 8 of the Upper Mississippi River
Large wood is an important restoration tool in aquatic ecosystems as it has a variety of geomorphological and ecological benefits. We have limited knowledge regarding the role of large wood in large rivers as most research ...
