The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is emerging as a new important species for studying brain mechanisms and its deficits. Focusing on selected CNS disorders (brain cancer, epilepsy and anxiety) and using them as examples, we discuss the value of zebrafish models in translational neuroscience, and their contribution to neuroimaging, circuit-level and...
The effect of nitrogen (N) application on seed yield of Limnanthes
alba was studied for two years at two locations. Seeding following alfalfa
(Medicago sativa L.) was compared to establishment after wheat
(Triticum aestivum L.). Treatments used were a control (no N applied),
and two rates of N (50 and...
Thirty-four current worksite health promotion programs were
studied in order to obtain comprehensive information about various components
involved in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of existing
programs, and to acquire the necessary data to develop a theory and corresponding
hypotheses pertaining to successful worksite health promotion
programs. The case study...

The major historical studies that have examined American
biology have emphasized the development of experimental biology at
the end of the nineteenth century. In this characterization, the
descriptive branch of biology has often been treated as less than
important and, in several cases, as a hindrance in the application
In their modern context questions of heredity have come to be
closely aligned with theories of evolution because all such theories
require the presence of heritable variation. Thus the need for an
understanding of a source of variation and a mechanism for its inheritance
became very apparent with the general...
The domestic cat (Felis silvestris catus) has shared an intertwined existence with humans for thousands of years, living on our city streets and in our homes. Yet, little scientific research has focused on the cognition of the domestic cat, especially in comparison to human’s other companion, the domestic dog (Canis...
