How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
The evolution of sexual dimorphism has long been attributed to sexual selection, specifically as it would drive repeated gains of elaborate male traits. In contrast to this pattern, New World oriole species all exhibit elaborate male plumage, and the repeated gains of sexual dichromatism observed in the genus are due to losses of female elaboration...

Detailed molecular phylogenies of closely related species provide an unprecedented opportunity to study the relationship between plumage evolution and speciation. Through reconstruction of ancestral character states, phylogenies enable us to separate convergence from similarity due to shared ancestry, and gains of plumage ornaments from losses. Mol...
Article
Durante el siglo pasado, numerosos artículos teóricos exploraron la evolución de la migración estacional en las aves. Muchos de éstos se enfocaron en las condiciones ambientales o sociales que podrían haber conducido al origen de la migración. Los trabajos más recientes no se han enfocado en el origen de la migración, sino en los cambios en el comp...
Article
A widely accepted paradigm is that sedentary Neotropical bird species are a reservoir that gives rise to temperate-tropical migratory species. Recently, an alternative theory has been proposed, that developmental plasticity can allow some individuals within a migratory species to establish a disjunct breeding range through loss of migration, thus f...
Article
During the past century, numerous theoretical articles explored the evolution of seasonal migration in birds; many of these focused on environmental or social conditions that may have led to the origin of migration. More recent work has focused not on the origin of migration, but on changes in migratory behavior that have occurred in modern species...

A recent phylogenetic survey of the New World orioles (genus Icterus; Omland et al. 1999) sug- gested that the Baltimore Oriole (I. galbula) and the Black-backed Oriole (I. abeillei) are sister taxa. That survey examined mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from a single representative of each species in the genus. Here, we examine mtDNA sequences from 15 Bla...

1) Identify native avocado abiotic stress resistant genes (homologs to other genes, including the aquaporins) and overexpress them, using Persea machinery, (no trans material, including trans promoter) 2) Produce a viable avocado tree that is significantly smaller, yet healthy and not stunted. 3) Produce an avocado tree that is cool-loving, smaller, and thrives on less hours of daylight. Expresses same proteome as wild-type Persea americana.
