So you’d like to plant some trees! As the saying goes, “The best
time to plant a tree was 30 years ago—the next best time is now.” This publication gets you started on the right track and answers some common reforestation questions.
The atmospheric transport and deposition of semi-volatile organic compounds (SOCs), including current and historic use pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), to mountain ecosystems may result in the exposure of tadpoles to these SOCs. This exposure has been implicated in amphibian population declines in California. Tadpoles encounter...
Background: Functional annotations of large plant genome projects mostly provide information on gene function
and gene families based on the presence of protein domains and gene homology, but not necessarily in
association with gene expression or metabolic and regulatory networks. These additional annotations are necessary
to understand the physiology, development...
The peripheral-type benzodiazepine receptor (PTBR) of trout brain was
pharmacologically characterized and pyrethroid interaction with this site
investigated. High-affinity binding sites for [³H]PK 11195 were detected in brain
membranes of rainbow trout; these shared some of the characteristics of the
PTBR of rodent brain (i.e., high affinity for PK 11195...
