The evolutionary ecology of nest construction: insight from recent fish studies

Posted on 9. May, 2014.

Nests are built by a wide variety of animals as functional receptacles for developing eggs and offspring, and they play a critical role in the reproductive biology of many species. Traditionally, research on the ecology and evolution of nest building and construction behaviour has focused primarily on birds, and avian studies have dominated the literature. However, as researchers working on non-bird models have realised the importance of nest construction in evolutionary ecology, the number of studies published on the nesting behaviour of nonbird taxa has increased.

Synthesis of 24(28)-methylene-1α-hydroxyvitamin D3, a novel vitamin D3 analogue

Posted on 8. May, 2014.

In healthy humans, vitamin D3 which is produced from 7-dehydrocholesterol by UV exposure on skin surface, undergoes two metabolic oxidations to afford the physiologically active form of vitamin D3 (1α, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, calcitriol).

Free to read: Avian Models for Research in Toxicology and Endocrine Disruption

Posted on 16. April, 2014.

In the 1960s, populations of wild birds showed dramatic declines. This, in association with environmental pollution, led to long-range interests in avian toxicology and more recently to investigating chemical pollutants that may cause endocrine disruption in avian species.

Free to read: Water or ice? – the challenge for invertebrate cold survival

Posted on 16. April, 2014.

Some insects freeze, others do not. Some insects die when frozen, others do not. This encapsulates the problem facing insects and other invertebrates living in cold environments in which there is a potential to freeze. Nature has chosen not to solve the problem in a single or simple way – a wide variety of adaptations has evolved to cope with cold stress in many different environments.
