Abstract

Keystone species restoration, or the restoration of species whose effect on an ecosystem is much greater than their abundance would suggest, is a central justification for many wildlife reintroduction projects globally. Following restoration, plains bison (Bison bison L.) have been identified as a...

Abstract

To improve the welfare of nonhuman animals under professional care, zoological institutions are continuously utilizing new methods to identify factors that lead to optimal welfare. Comparative methods have historically been used in the field of evolutionary biology but are increasingly being...

Abstract

Unlike the normal anadromous lifestyle, Chinese native Dolly Varden char (Salvelinus malma) is locked in land and lives in fresh water lifetime. To explore the effect of freshwater adaption on its immune system, we constructed a pooled cDNA library of hepatopancreas and spleen of Chinese freshwater ...

Abstract

Sociality has brought many advantages to various hymenoptera species, including their ability of regulating physical factors in their nest (e.g., temperature). Although less studied, humidity is known to be important for egg, larval and pupal development, and also for nectar concentration. Two...

Abstract

In order to study the effect of the season on the evolution of ewes' body weight (W) and body condition score (BCS) during their breeding cycle, 22 Ouled Djellal ewes, reared in an extensive system, have been managed in an accelerated lambing rate (3 lambing in 2 years). The combined weighing and...

Abstract

Considerable effort has been devoted to understanding the negative effects of reduced PO2 on cardiac function. Much less is known about the impacts of elevated PO2 (hyperoxia) on cardiac performance and energetics, especially in fishes. The fish heart is of particular interest because cardiac...

Abstract

The amh, a member of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) family, is known to play a critical role in vertebrate male sex differentiation, with its paralogue/s evolving to determine sex in few heterogametic (XX/XY) teleosts. However, it remains relatively unexplored in the reproductively unique...
