  • Trade-off between transcriptome plasticity and genome evolution in cephalopods 

    Liscovitch-Brauer, Noa; Alon, Shahar; Porath, Hagit T.; Elstein, Boaz; Unger, Ron; Ziv, Tamar; Admon, Arie; Levanon, Erez; Rosenthal, Joshua J. C.; Eisenberg, Eli (2017-03)
    RNA editing, a post-transcriptional process, allows the diversification of proteomes beyond the genomic blueprint; however it is infrequently used among animals. Recent reports suggesting increased levels of RNA editing ...
  • The Matamek Research Program : annual report for 1981 

    Naiman, Robert J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-06)
    This report summarizes activities associated with the Matamek Research Station in 1981. Research was conducted on the biological, chemical, and physical environment of streams and rivers, principally in the Maisie ...
  • The Matamek Research Program : annual report for 1980 

    Naiman, Robert J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-06)
    This report briefly describes activities associated with the Matamek Research Program in 1980. Research was conducted on biological, chemical, and physical characteristics of streams and rivers, principally in the Maisie ...
  • CODE-1 : moored array and large-scale data report 

    Beardsley, Robert C.; Mills, Carol A.; Rosenfeld, Leslie K.; Bratkovich, Alan W.; Erdman, M. Rustin; Winant, Clinton D.; Allen, John S.; Halliwell, George R.; Brown, Wendell S.; Irish, James D. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-08)
    The Coastal Ocean Dynamics Experiment (CODE) was undertaken to identify and study the important dynamical processes which govern the wind-driven motion of coastal water over the continental shelf. The initial effort ...
  • Impact of recently upwelled water on productivity investigated using in situ and incubation-based methods in Monterey Bay 

    Manning, Cara C.; Stanley, Rachel H. R.; Nicholson, David P.; Smith, Jason M.; Pennington, Timothy; Fewings, Melanie R.; Squibb, Michael E.; Chavez, Francisco P. (John Wiley & Sons, 2017-03-11)
    Photosynthetic conversion of inline image to organic carbon and the transport of this carbon from the surface to the deep ocean is an important regulator of atmospheric inline image. To understand the controls on carbon ...
  • True’s beaked whale (Mesoplodon mirus) in Macaronesia 

    Aguilar de Soto, Natacha; Martín, Vidal; Silva, Monica; Edler, Roland; Reyes, Cristel; Carrillo, Manuel; Schiavi, Agustina; Morales, Talia; García-Ovide, Belen; Sanchez-Mora, Anna; Garcia-Tavero, Nerea; Steiner, Lisa; Scheer, Michael; Gockel, Roland; Walker, Dylan; Villa, Enrico; Szlama, Petra; Eriksson, Ida K.; Tejedor, Marisa; Perez-Gil, Monica; Quaresma, João; Bachara, Wojtek; Carroll, Emma (PeerJ, 2017-03-07)
    The True’s beaked whale (Mesoplodon mirus, True 1913) is a poorly known member of the Ziphiidae family. Its distribution in the northern hemisphere is thought to be restricted to the temperate or warm temperate waters of ...
  • Sea surface pCO2 and O2 dynamics in the partially ice-covered Arctic Ocean 

    Islam, Fakhrul; DeGrandpre, Michael D.; Beatty, Cory; Timmermans, Mary-Louise; Krishfield, Richard A.; Toole, John M.; Laney, Samuel R. (John Wiley & Sons, 2017-02-25)
    Understanding the physical and biogeochemical processes that control CO2 and dissolved oxygen (DO) dynamics in the Arctic Ocean (AO) is crucial for predicting future air-sea CO2 fluxes and ocean acidification. Past studies ...
  • Entrainment in a dense current flowing down a rough sloping bottom in a rotating fluid 

    Ottolenghi, Luisa; Cenedese, Claudia; Adduce, Claudia (American Meteorological Society, 2017-02-20)
    Dense oceanic overflows descend over the rough topography of the continental slope entraining and mixing with surrounding waters. The associated dilution dictates the fate of these currents and thus is of fundamental ...
  • Slowed biogeochemical cycling in sub-arctic birch forest linked to reduced mycorrhizal growth and community change after a defoliation event 

    Parker, Thomas C.; Sadowsky, Jesse; Dunleavy, Haley; Subke, Jens-Arne; Frey, Serita D.; Wookey, Philip A. (Springer, 2016-08-25)
    Sub-arctic birch forests (Betula pubescens Ehrh. ssp. czerepanovii) periodically suffer large-scale defoliation events caused by the caterpillars of the geometrid moths Epirrita autumnata and Operophtera brumata. Despite ...
  • Mesodinium rubrum exhibits genus-level but not species-level cryptophyte prey selection 

    Peltomaa, Elina; Johnson, Matthew D. (Inter-Research, 2017-02-09)
    The marine ciliate Mesodinium rubrum is known to form large non-toxic red water blooms in estuarine and coastal upwelling regions worldwide. This ciliate relies predominantly upon photosynthesis by using plastids and other ...
