Mediterranean-climate regions (med-regions) are global hotspots of endemism 40 facing mounting environmental threats associated with human-related activities, including the ecological impacts associated with non-native species introductions. We review freshwater fish introductions across med-regions to evaluate the influences of non-native fishes on the biogeography of taxonomic and functional diversity. Our synthesis...
We have previously shown that diets enriched with (n-3) fatty acids reduced the delayed-type
hypersensitivity (DTH) skin reaction to keyhole limpet haemocyanin (KLH) in
geriatric-Beagles. Although the amount of α-tocopheryl acetate in diets of the previous
study exceeded requirements, plasma α-tocopherol concentration was significantly lower
in dogs fed the high...

Background: Academic medical centers are examining relationships with the pharmaceutical industry
and making changes to limit interactions. Most doctors, however, practice outside of academic institutions
and see pharmaceutical detailers and accept drug samples and gifts. Little guidance for practicing
physicians exists about transforming practices to become pharma-free. Consideration must be...
Volcán Miño (21°11'S) is located on the westernmost periphery of a longlived
complex of stratovolcarioes and domes called the Aucanquilcha
Complex. The Aucanquilcha Complex ranges in age from 11 Ma to
1-lolocene and lies along the main N-S trending axis of Quaternary
volcanoes in the Andean Central Volcanic Zone (CVZ)....
