  • Analyzing community resilience as an emergent property of dynamic social-ecological systems 

    Faulkner, L; Brown, K; Quinn, T (Resilience Alliance, 2018-01-01)
    Community resilience is widely promoted so that communities can respond positively to a range of risks, including shocks, extreme events, and other changes. Although much research has identified characteristics or capacities ...
  • Ancestral function and diversification of a horizontally acquired oomycete carboxylic acid transporter 

    Savory, FR; Milner, DS; Miles, DC; Richards, TA (Oxford University Press (OUP) for Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution, 2018-04-25)
    Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) can equip organisms with novel genes, expanding the repertoire of genetic material available for evolutionary innovation and allowing recipient lineages to colonise new environments. However, ...
  • The ancestral symbiont sensor kinase CSK links photosynthesis with gene expression in chloroplasts. 

    Puthiyaveetil, S; Kavanagh, TA; Cain, P; Sullivan, JA; Newell, CA; Gray, JC; Robinson, C; van der Giezen, M; Rogers, MB; Allen, John F. (2008-07-22)
    We describe a novel, typically prokaryotic, sensor kinase in chloroplasts of green plants. The gene for this chloroplast sensor kinase (CSK) is found in cyanobacteria, prokaryotes from which chloroplasts evolved. The CSK ...
  • Ancient coexistence of norepinephrine, tyramine, and octopamine signaling in bilaterians 

    Bauknecht, P; Jékely, G (BioMed Central, 2017-01-30)
    BACKGROUND: Norepinephrine/noradrenaline is a neurotransmitter implicated in arousal and other aspects of vertebrate behavior and physiology. In invertebrates, adrenergic signaling is considered absent and analogous functions ...
  • Ancient diversification of eukaryotic MCM DNA replication proteins. 

    Aves, Stephen; Richards, Thomas A; Liu, Yuan (BioMed Central, 2009)
    Yeast and animal cells require six mini-chromosome maintenance proteins (Mcm2-7) for pre-replication complex formation, DNA replication initiation and DNA synthesis. These six individual MCM proteins form distinct heterogeneous ...
  • Ancient DNA analysis identifies marine mollusc shells as new metagenomic archives of the past. 

    Der Sarkissian, C; Pichereau, V; Dupont, C; Ilsøe, PC; Perrigault, M; Butler, P; Chauvaud, L; Eiríksson, J; Scourse, J; Paillard, C; Orlando, L (Wiley, 2017-05-12)
    Marine mollusc shells enclose a wealth of information on coastal organisms and their environment. Their life history traits as well as (palaeo-) environmental conditions, including temperature, food availability, salinity ...
  • An ancient FMRFamide-related peptide-receptor pair induces defence behaviour in a brachiopod larva 

    Thiel, D; Bauknecht, P; Jékely, G; Hejnol, A (Royal Society, 2017-08)
    Animal behaviour often comprises spatially separated sub-reactions and even ciliated larvae are able to coordinate sub-reactions of complex behaviours (metamorphosis, feeding). How these sub-reactions are coordinated is ...
  • Ancient pre-glacial erosion surfaces preserved beneath the West Antarctic Ice Sheet 

    Rose, K.C.; Ross, N; Jordan, T.A.; Bingham, R.G.; Corr, H.F.J.; Le Brocq, A.M.; Ferraccioli, F; Rippin, D.M.; Siegert, M.J. (European Geosciences Union (EGU) / Copernicus Publications, 2015-02-16)
    present ice-penetrating radar evidence for ancient (pre-glacial) and extensive erosion surfaces preserved beneath the upstream Institute and Möller ice streams, West Antarctica. Radar data reveal a smooth, laterally ...
  • Andean microrefugia: testing the Holocene to predict the Anthropocene 

    Valencia, BG; Matthews-Bird, F; Urrego, DH; Williams, JJ; Gosling, WD; Bush, M (Wiley for New Phytologist Trust, 2016-07-04)
    Summary Microrefugia are important for supporting populations during periods of unfavourable climate change and in facilitating rapid migration as conditions ameliorate. With ongoing anthropogenic climate change, ...
  • Animal Forests Through Time: Historical Data to Understand Present Changes in Marine Ecosystems 

    Thurstan, RH; Pandolfi, JM; zu Ermgassen, PSE (Springer, 2017)
    Animal forests form the foundation of many important marine benthic habitats. However, a near ubiquitous lack of long-term scientific data raises significant challenges in assessing how these communities have changed over ...
  • Animal geographies II: methods 

    Buller, HJ (Sage, 2014)
    Animal geographies challenge not only the place and placing of the human and the animal but, critically, the methods we use to engage with both in relation. This second review considers the various methodological implications ...
  • Animal Geographies III: Ethics 

    Buller, HJ (SAGE Publications, 2015-04-19)
    There is no animal geography without ethics. The very coupling of the words gives rise to an ethical endeavor; an acceptance that animals have a geography, a making visible of animals within our human geography and ...
