  Endangered Avian Species Captive Propagation - Free Content

Posted on 27. February, 2014.

Bird species, like plants and other animals are facing an unprecedented decline. Captive breeding as a conservation tool can be used as a substitute for wild populations in research and education, to provide demographic and genetic reservoirs for reinforcing or founding wild populations, and as a last resort for species that have no immediate opportunity for survival in nature.

Gastrointestinal Diseases of Napoleon in Saint Helena: causes of death

Posted on 26. February, 2014.

One hundred and eighty one years after the death of Napoleon I, the circumstances of his death remain very controversial. Until relatively recently, it was assumed that he had died of stomach cancer. This diagnosis was essentially supported by the data in the remarkable autopsy performed and reported by his last doctor in Saint Helena, Francesco Antommarchi.

Protonation equilibria of glycylglycine and histamine in aqueous solution of an anionic surfactant  

Posted on 26. February, 2014.

Peptides are an amazing, diverse and multi-faceted class of compounds constructed from relatively simple building blocks, the amino acids. They are components of tissues and exhibit a remarkable range of biological properties acting as antibiotics, hormones, food additives, poisons or pain-killers.

Bidirectional selection for yolk testosterone content in Japanese quail

Posted on 25. February, 2014.

The variability of hormone levels in avian eggs has often been accounted for by adaptive yolk hormone-mediated maternal effects by which the phenotype of the next generation can be adjusted to environmental conditions experienced by the mother. The environment, therefore, represents an important variable that can create variations in the relative amounts of yolk hormones.

Synthesis, crystal structure and Cu2+ recognition of novel azobenzene derivatives

Posted on 25. February, 2014.

Copper is the third most abundant transition metal following zinc and iron in human bodies and plays a crucial role in many fundamental physiological processes in organisms. However, exposure to a high level of copper even for a short period of time can cause gastrointestinal disturbance, while long-term exposure can cause liver or kidney damage.

Free to read in Science Progress - Chemistry in the clouds: the role of aerosols in atmospheric chemistry

Posted on 24. February, 2014.

Ever since the discovery of the ozone hole over the Antarctic and the recognition of the damaging effects of acid rain, the role of atmospheric aerosol particles in determining the chemical balance of the atmosphere has received much attention.

Reaction mechanisms for the heterogeneous hydrogenolysis of biomass-derived glycerol to propanediols

Posted on 24. February, 2014.

Biomass-derived glycerol is emerging as a renewable, cheap and versatile feedstock for the production of a variety of chemicals and fuels. In particular, hydrogenolysis of glycerol to other value-added chemicals over heterogeneous catalysts has been extensively studied in the past few years. The most desired products arising from this process are propanediols, i.e. 1,2-propanediol and 1,3-propanediol.
