      Emerging infectious diseases are a key threat to wildlife. Several fungal skin pathogens have recently emerged and caused widespread mortality in several vertebrate groups, including amphibians, bats, rattlesnakes and ...
    • Bacteriophage Distributions and Temporal Variability in the Ocean's Interior 

      Luo, Elaine; Aylward, Frank O.; Mende, Daniel R.; DeLong, Edward F. (American Society for Microbiology, 2017-11)
      Bacteriophages are numerically the most abundant DNA-containing entities in the oligotrophic ocean, yet how specific phage populations vary over time and space remains to be fully explored. Here, we conducted a metagenomic ...

      Background Reproducibility is a fundamental requirement in scientific experiments. Some recent publications have claimed that microarrays are unreliable because lists of differentially expressed genes (DEGs) are not ...
    • Below- and above-ground effects of deadwood and termites in plantation forests 

      Ulyshen, Michael D.; Shefferson, Richard; Horn, Scott; Taylor, Melanie K.; Bush, Bryana; Brownie, Cavell; Seibold, Sebastian; Strickland, Michael S. (Ecological Society of America, 2017-08)
      Deadwood is an important legacy structure in managed forests, providing continuity in shelter and resource availability for many organisms and acting as a vehicle by which nutrients can be passed from one stand to the next ...
    • Between-year breeding dispersal in red-cockaded woodpeckers: multiple causes and estimated cost 

      Daniels, S. J.; Walters, J. R. (Ecological Society of America, 2000-09)
      We studied between-year dispersal of adult females within a population of cooperatively breeding Red-cockaded Woodpeckers (Picoides borealis) in the Sandhills of North Carolina, using data collected between 1980 and 1995. ...
    • Beyond Ecocentrism 

      Cairns, John (EcoRes Forum, 2007)
      In order to avoid further damage to the ecosystems, we must promote ecological health as the primary goal, which will require at least two steps beyond ecocentrism. First, one must regard the relationship between humankind ...
    • Bifurcation analysis of a model of the budding yeast cell cycle 

      Battogtokh, D.; Tyson, John J. (Amer Inst Physics, 2004-09-01)
      We study the bifurcations of a set of nine nonlinear ordinary differential equations that describe regulation of the cyclin-dependent kinase that triggers DNA synthesis and mitosis in the budding yeast, Saccharomyces ...
    • Biological integrity: a long-neglected aspect of water resource management 

      Karr, J. R. (Ecological Society of America, 1991-02)
      Water of sufficient quality and quantity is critical to all life. Increasing human population and growth of technology require human society to devote more and more attention to protection of adequate supplies of water. ...
