Free-Boundary Axisymmetric MHD Equilibrium
The calculation of equilibrium conditions is a common task in the study and modeling of magnetic-confinement experiments for con- trolled nuclear fusion, in which a high-temperature plasma is confined in a finite region ...
Crossing the Divide: Admixture Across the Antarctic Polar Front Revealed by the Brittle Star Astrotoma agassizii
The Antarctic Polar Front (APF) is one of the most well-defined and persistent oceanographic features on the planet and serves as a barrier to dispersal between the Southern Ocean and lower latitudes. High levels of endemism ...
Phylogenomic analyses of Crassiclitellata support major Northern and Southern Hemisphere clades and a Pangaean origin for earthworms
BACKGROUND: Earthworms (Crassiclitellata) are a diverse group of annelids of substantial ecological and economic importance. Earthworms are primarily terrestrial infaunal animals, and as such are probably rather poor natural ...
The players in a mutualistic symbiosis: insects, bacteria, viruses, and virulence genes
Aphids maintain mutualistic symbioses involving consortia of coinherited organisms. All possess a primary endosymbiont, Buchnera, which compensates for dietary deficiencies; many also contain secondary symbionts, such as ...
The influence of maternal nesting behaviour on offspring survival: evidence from correlational and cross-fostering studies
The maternal effect of nesting behaviour is important in oviparous species because choice of microhabitat (e.g. shade cover, temperature) can determine the environment in which embryos develop. In turn, this maternal choice ...

Seismic data in SEG-2 format.
Discovery and evolution of novel hemerythrin genes in annelid worms
BACKGROUND: Despite extensive study on hemoglobins and hemocyanins, little is known about hemerythrin (Hr) evolutionary history. Four subgroups of Hrs have been documented, including: circulating Hr (cHr), myohemerythrin ...
Longitudinal Analysis of a Diversity Support Program in Biology: A National Call for Further Assessment
National calls to improve the performance and persistence of students from historically underrepresented backgrounds in science have led to a surge of research on inclusive, evidence-based teaching methods. Less work has ...
Discovery and broad relevance may be insignificant components of course-based 1 undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) for non-biology majors
Course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) are a type of laboratory learning environment associated with a science course in which undergraduates participate in novel research. According to Auchinchloss et ...
Enhancing Diversity in Undergraduate Science: Self-Efficacy Drives Performance Gains with Active Learning
Efforts to retain underrepresented minority (URM) students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) have shown only limited success in higher education, due in part to a persistent achievement gap between ...
