Influence of host genetic origin and geographic location on QPX disease in northern quahogs (=hard clams), Mercenaria mercenaria
(National Shellfisheries Association, 2007-04)
QPX (Quahog Parasite Unknown) a protistan pathogen of northern quahogs (=hard clams), Mercenaria mercenaria, has caused disease outbreaks in maritime Canada, and in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and Virginia, USA. ...
Bryostatin enhancement of memory in Hermissenda
(Marine Biological Laboratory, 2006-06)
Bryostatin, a potent agonist of protein kinase C (PKC), when administered to Hermissenda was found to affect acquisition of an associative learning paradigm. Low bryostatin concentrations (0.1 to 0.5 ng/ml) enhanced memory ...
Microstructural and biochemical characterization of the nanoporous sucker rings from Dosidicus gigas
Recent interest in the development of environmentally benign routes to the synthesis of novel multifunctional materials has resulted in numerous investigations into structure-function relationships of a wide range of ...
Creation of the Marine Resource Center at MBL
The creation of the Station Biologique de Roscoff In France in 1859 heralded a century of study of marine animals. In the US, Congress created the U.S. Commission of Fish and Fisheries in 1871 to investigate declining fish ...
Four-bar linkage modelling in teleost pharyngeal jaws : computer simulations of bite kinetics
The pharyngeal arches of the red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus) possess large toothplates and a complex musculoskeletal design for biting and crushing hard prey. The morphology of pharyngeal apparatus is described from dissections ...
The behaviour and ecology of the zebrafish, Danio rerio
The zebrafish is an important model organism in developmental genetics, neurophysiology and biomedicine, but little is known about its natural ecology and behaviour. It is a small, shoaling cyprinid, native to the flood-plains ...
Hyperspectral imaging of cuttlefish camouflage indicates good color match in the eyes of fish predators
Camouflage is a widespread phenomenon throughout nature and an important anti-predator tactic in natural selection. Many visual predators have keen color perception, thus camouflage patterns should provide some degree ...
Neural control of tuneable skin iridescence in squid
Fast dynamic control of skin coloration is rare in the animal kingdom, whether it be pigmentary or structural. Iridescent structural coloration results when nanoscale structures disrupt incident light and selectively reflect ...
