Article
Full-text available
Migratory species that cross geopolitical boundaries pose challenges for conservation planning because threats may vary across a species' range and multi-country collaboration is required to implement conservation action plans. The lesser long-nosed bat (Leptonycteris yerbabuenae) is a migratory pollinator bat that was removed from the Endangered S...
Article
Understanding the cues that drive larval fish settlement is critical for managing reef systems under stress. Reef sound is increasingly reported to influence fish recruitment, yet the physical and acoustic environment in which larval fish settle varies in space and time. Accordingly, testing potential settlement cues under different conditions is v...
Chapter
The process of finding, identifying, and processing food requires multiple sensory modalities, and complex physiological processes that must also account for competition, predation, and anthropogenic pressures. Thus, understanding how and where songbirds forage allows for a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of migration, as well as the importa...

Males often exhibit elaborate ornamentation that contributes to their fitness. Similarly, females can also exhibit elaborate ornamentation, but we have a relatively limited understanding of its function. Recent studies have demonstrated that female ornamentation can function in both intrasexual competition and male mate choice, but few studies have...

Female competitive behaviors during courtship can have substantial fitness consequences yet we know little about the physiological and social mechanisms underlying these behaviors – particularly for females of polygynous lek mating species. We explored the hormonal and social drivers of female intersexual and intrasexual behavior during courtship b...

Species range contractions both contribute to, and result from, biological annihilation, yet do not receive the same attention as extinctions. Range contractions can lead to marked impacts on populations but are usually characterized only by reduction in extent of range. For effective conservation, it is critical to recognize that not all range con...

Species range contractions are important contributors to biological annihilation, yet typically do not receive the same attention as extinctions. Range contractions can lead to marked impacts on populations but are often only characterized by measurements of reduced extent. For effective conservation efforts, it is critical to recognize that not al...

This article reports a simple one-step method of attaching folic acid (FA) to gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and its fine tuning using different polyethylene glycol (PEG) backbones. PEG backbones used in this study are PEG-diamine with molecular weights 2000 (PAM2-2K) and 10,000 (PAM2-10K), PEG-tetramine with molecular weight 20,000 (PAM4-20K), and PEG...
