An 40Ar/39Ar thermochronology of the Ofoten-Troms region: Implications for terrane amalgamation and extensional collapse of the northern Scandinavian Caledonides 

Coker, Janet; Steltenpohl, Mark; Andresen, Arild; Kunk, Michael; 0000-0003-4424-7825 (2022-10-25)
Fifteen Ar-40/Ar-39 cooling ages are reported for metamorphic hornblende and muscovite from far traveled terranes constituting the Ofoten nappe stack of northern Norway. Eight cooling ages on hornblende range from 425 to ...

Accurate virial coefficients of gaseous krypton from state-of-the-art ab initio potential and polarizability of the krypton dimer 

Song, Bo; Waldrop, Jonathan M.; Wang, Xiaopo; Patkowski, Konrad; (2020-06-25)
We have developed a new krypton-krypton interaction-induced isotropic dipole polarizability curve based on high-level ab initio methods. The determination was carried out using the coupled-cluster singles and doubles plus ...

The Adaptive Bleaching Hypothesis: Experimental Tests of Critical Assumptions 

Kinzie, R. A; Takayama, M; Santos, S.R; Coffroth, M. A. (2019-08-02)
Coral bleaching, the loss of color due to loss of symbiotic zooxanthellae or their pigment, appears to be increasing in intensity and geographic extent, perhaps related to increasing sea surface temperatures. The adaptive ...

Rajakaruna, Nishanta; Boyd, Robert S. (2021-01-04)
Rajakaruna, Nishanta, and Boyd, Robert S.

Amphibian Speciation Rates Support a General Role of Mountains as Biodiversity Pumps 

García-Rodríguez, Adrián; Martínez, Pablo; Oliveira, Brunno; Velasco, Julián; Pyron, Alexander; Costa, Gabriel; 0000-0002-9831-2963 (2022-09-20)
Continental mountain areas cover <15% of global land surface, yet these regions concentrate >80% of global terrestrial diversity. One prominent hypothesis to explain this pattern proposes that high mountain diversities ...

Anatomy of the Laminar Organs of Commelina erecta (Commelinaceae) 

Dute, Roland R.; Jackson, Brian E.; Adkins, Ryan D.; Folkerts, Debbie R. (2021-01-27)
A study was undertaken to compare the anatomy of the laminar floral parts with that of the spathes and leaves of Commelina erecta L. Each flower has two types of petals and two types of sepals. In contrast to the other ...

Anemonefish oxygenate their anemone hosts at night 

Szczebak, Joseph T.; Henry, Raymond P.; Al-Horani, Fuad A.; Chadwick, Nanette (2023-09-20)
Many stony coral-dwelling fishes exhibit adaptations to deal with hypoxia among the branches of their hosts; however, no information exists on the respiratory ecophysiology of obligate fish associates of non-coral organisms ...

Ar/TTIP dust cloud 

Ramkorun, Bhavesh; 0000-0001-9678-4118 (2024-01-23)

Are we underestimating the genetic variances of dimorphic traits? 

Wolak, Mathew E.; Roff, Derek A.; Fairbairn, Daphne J. (2022-09-16)
Populations often contain discrete classes or morphs (e.g., sexual dimorphisms, wing dimorphisms, trophic dimorphisms) characterized by distinct patterns of trait expression. In quantitative genetic analyses, the different ...

Assessment of transition operator reference states in electron propagator calculations 

Flores-Moreno, Roberto; Zakrzewski, V. G.; Ortiz, J.V. (2021-01-26)
The transition operator method combined with second-order, self-energy corrections to the electron propagator TOEP2 may be used to calculate valence and core-electron binding energies. This method is tested on a set of ...

Assignment of photoelectron spectra of halide–water clusters: Contrasting patterns of delocalization in Dyson orbitals 

Dolgounitcheva, O.; Zakrzewski, V. G.; Ortiz, J. V.; Ortiz, Joseph V. (2020-01-16)
Ab initio electron propagator calculations in various self-energy approximations provide accurate assignments of peaks observed in the photoelectron spectra of complexes that comprise a fluoride or chloride anion and two ...

Bacteria as an agent for change in structural plumage color: Correlational and experimental evidence 

Shawkey, Matthew; Pillai, Shreekumar; Hill, Geoffrey; Siefferman, Lynn; Roberts, Sharon; 0000-0001-8864-6495; 0000-0002-5131-8209; 0000-0002-9600-2902 (2023-05-17)
Recent studies have documented that a diverse assemblage of bacteria is present on the feathers of wild birds and that uropygial oil affects these bacteria in diverse ways. These findings suggest that birds may regulate ...

BAM files associated with Macaca arctoides hybridization analysis 

Stevison, Laurie; 0000-0001-7900-5266 (2022-10-12)
Genital divergence is thought to contribute to reproductive barriers by establishing a “lock-and-key" mechanism for reproductive compatibility. One such example, Macaca arctoides, the bear macaque, has compensatory changes ...

Basis set converged weak interaction energies from conventional and explicitly correlated coupled-cluster approach 

Patkowski, Konrad (2020-01-16)
Interaction energies for seven weakly bound dimers involving helium, argon, water, and methane are computed using large correlation-consistent basis sets augmented with bond functions. The estimates of the coupled-cluster ...
