Lizard embryos prioritize post-hatching energy reserves over increased hatchling body size during development
Embryonic development in oviparous organisms is fueled by maternally-allocated yolk, with many organisms hatching before that energy store is completely used up; the resultant leftover (residual) yolk is internalized and ...
Interspecific combat observed among viperid snakes
Bounded Complete Embedding Graphs, Extended Version
This is the extended version of my dissertation, "Bounded Complete Embedding Graphs." This version is presented in three parts, each in a separate file. [Part 1] Bounded Complete Embedding Graphs [Part 2] Extension ...
Simulation studies of a recorder in three dimensions
The aeroacoustics of a recorder are explored using a direct numerical simulation based on the Navier–Stokes equations in three dimensions. The qualitative behavior is studied using spatial maps of the air pressure and ...
Explaining the Railsback stretch in terms of the inharmonicity of piano tones and sensory dissonance
The perceptual results of Plomp and Levelt for the sensory dissonance of a pair of pure tones are used to estimate the dissonance of pairs of piano tones. By using the spectra of tones measured for a real piano, the effect ...
Aeroacoustics of wind musical instruments
This is a record of a dataset deposit.
Ring/Shell Ion Distributions at Geosynchronous Orbit
One year's worth of plasma observations from geosynchronous orbit is examined for ion distributions that may simultaneously be subject to the ion Bernstein (IB) instability (generating fast magnetosonic waves) and the ...
Cross-scale observations of the 2015 St. Patrick's day storm: THEMIS, Van Allen Probes, and TWINS
We present cross-scale magnetospheric observations of the 17 March 2015 (St. Patrick's Day) storm, by Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms (THEMIS), Van Allen Probes (Radiation Belt Storm ...
Rapid evolution of disease resistance is accompanied by functional changes in gene expression in a wild bird
Wild organisms are under increasing pressure to adapt rapidly to environmental changes. Predicting the impact of these changes on natural populations requires an understanding of the speed with which adaptive phenotypes ...
Whistler anisotropy instabilities as the source of banded chorus: Van Allen Probes observations and particle-in-cell simulations
Magnetospheric banded chorus is enhanced whistler waves with frequencies (r)<(e), where (e) is the electron cyclotron frequency, and a characteristic spectral gap at (r)similar or equal to(e)/2. This paper uses spacecraft ...
