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

I am a PhD student at the American Museum of Natural History at the Richard Gilder Graduate School. I am investigating the ubiquity and potential functions of fish biofluorescence.

Fitness is in part determined by the success of prey capture, often achieved in marine piscivores using teeth to capture and process prey. In ram feeding piscivores, a pattern of monognathic heterodonty has been observed where tooth size either increases posteriorly (Scomberomorus maculatus), or anteriorly (Carcharhinus limbatus), with exceptions s...
Tooth replacement rates of polyphyodont cartilaginous and bony fishes are hard to determine because of a lack of obvious patterning and maintaining specimens long enough to observe replacement. Pulse-chase is a fluorescent technique that differentially colours developing mineralized tissue. We present in situ tooth replacement rate and position dat...
I am modelling a cone (3D revolve of a triangle) on a block to test stress of 10N of concentrated force of tip of the cone. Theoretically, the stress values should be equal when applied at a 90 degree angle to the tip in the x and z planes, but there is variation. I'm assuming this is because the mesh is uneven. The first picture is of the model.The second and third are my attempts to make an even Tet mesh with no success. I partitioned at 22.5 degrees around the cone and seeded the bottom edge of the cone as well as the partitions as a last ditch effort. The last picture is what a Tet mesh looks like with the defaults. Does anyone know how to make an even mesh for a cone?
