Fiddler on the roof : a northern range extension for the marsh fiddler crab Uca pugnax
A northern range extension is presented here for the marsh fiddler crab Uca pugnax. In summer 2014, adult crabs were found as far north as Hampton, New Hampshire (42.924428, -70.820517), which is 80 km north of its previously ...
Ecological functions of uncultured microorganisms in the cobalt-rich ferromanganese crust of a seamount in the central Pacific are elucidated by fosmid sequencing
Cobalt-rich ferromanganese is an important seafloor mineral and is abundantly present in the seamount crusts. Such crusts form potential hotspots for biogeochemical activity and microbial diversity, yet our understanding ...
Species compositional differences on different-aged glacial landscapes drive contrasting responses of tundra to nutrient addition
In the northern foothills of the Brooks Range, Alaska, moist non-acidic tundra dominates more recently deglaciated upland landscapes, whereas moist acidic tundra dominates older upland landscapes. In previous studies, ...
Catecholaminergic connectivity to the inner ear, central auditory, and vocal motor circuitry in the plainfin midshipman fish porichthys notatus
Although the neuroanatomical distribution of catecholaminergic (CA) neurons has been well documented across all vertebrate classes, few studies have examined CA connectivity to physiologically and anatomically identified ...
pH dependent isotropic to nematic phase transitions in graphene oxide dispersions reveal droplet liquid crystalline phases
Size fractionation, amplified by the surface charge density of graphene oxide (GO) sheets, broadens the pH dependent isotropic (I) to nematic (N) phase transition in aqueous dispersions of graphene oxide (GO). In this ...
Living cells and dynamic molecules observed with the polarized light microscope : the legacy of Shinya Inoué
(Marine Biological Laboratory, 2016-08)
In 1948, Shinya Inoué arrived in the United States for graduate studies at Princeton. A year later he came to Woods Hole, starting a long tradition of summer research at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), which quickly ...
The cellular mechanisms of learning in Aplysia : of blind men and elephants
(Marine Biological Laboratory, 2006-06)
Until recently, investigations of the neurobiological substrates of simple forms of learning and memory in the marine snail Aplysia have focused mostly on plastic changes that occur within the presynaptic sensory neurons. ...
Effects of temperature and diet on the growth rate of year 0 oyster toadfish, Opsanus tau
(Marine Biological Laboratory, 2006-02)
The effects of temperature and diet on the growth of captive year 0 specimens of Opansus tau were examined for two consecutive year classes. The 2001 year class was raised at about 23, 26, or 29°C and provided with live ...
The savory swimmer swims north : a northern range extension of the blue crab Callinectes sapidus?
Worldwide, climate-change is shifting species distributions poleward. Here I present recent (2012-2014) observations of the blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, in the Gulf of Maine (GoM), north of its historical range of Cape ...
