Evolutionary variations in the expression of dorso-ventral patterning genes and the conservation of pioneer neurons in Tribolium castaneum
© 2015 Elsevier Inc. Insects are ideally suited for gaining insight into the evolutionary developmental mechanisms that have led to adaptive changes of the nervous system since the specific structure of the nervous system ...

Geographic profiling in Nazi Berlin: fact and fiction
(National Geospatial Agency, 2014)
Geographic profiling uses the locations of connected crime sites to make inferences about the probable location of the offender’s ‘anchor point’ (usually a home, but sometimes a workplace). We show how the basic ideas of ...
Effects of growth rate, size, and light availability on tree survival across life stages: a demographic analysis accounting for missing values and small sample sizes.
Plant survival is a key factor in forest dynamics and survival probabilities often vary across life stages. Studies specifically aimed at assessing tree survival are unusual and so data initially designed for other purposes ...
Interfacial equation of state for ionized surfactants at oil/water interfaces
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-07-13)
A new mathematical approach has been developed for describing the interfacial behaviour of oil/water interfaces in the presence of ionic surfactants. The approach relies on the ideal behaviour of ionized surfactants at ...
Novel nitro(triazole/imidazole)-based heteroarylamides/sulfonamides as potential antitrypanosomal agents
We have previously shown that 3-nitro-1H-1,2,4-triazole-based arylamides and arylsulfonamides demonstrate significant activity in vitro against Trypanosoma cruzi, the causative parasite of Chagas disease. More importantly, ...
Exploring the mechanism of how ectotherms change size with changing temperature
(Queen Mary University of London, 2012-07)
The “temperature-size rule” (TSR) describes the intraspecific, phenotypically plastic response of ectotherm body size to temperature: individuals take longer to mature at cooler temperatures but do so at a larger size. ...
