Effects of riparian buffer width on stream salamander populations in the southern Appalachian Mountains
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
Salamanders in the Appalachian region have been extensively studied, but the majority of research assessing the impacts of logging has focused on terrestrial species that are not dependent on stream habitats for egg ...
Mechanisms of photoreceptor mediated responses in photomorphogenesis and phototropism
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
Photoreceptor facilitated light perception provides plants with critical environmental information from which they can direct their growth. We investigated the early photomorphogenic responses in Glycine max and Glycine ...
Centromere function and evolution in maize (Zea mays)
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
of repetitive elements showing that certain families of retrotransposons are enriched in the heterochromatic regions flanking the centromere. Finally, I describe a novel chromosomal rearrangement, an inversion with a breakpoint in the centromere that splits...
Tales of an 'invisible' life stage : survival and physiology among terrestrial juvenile ambystomatid salamanders
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2019)
The vital rates (e.g., survival, growth, and reproduction) of distinct life stages within a species are known to influence the growth and persistence of populations. As such, studies describing stage-specific vital rates, ...
Seasonality and elevational migration in an Andean bird community
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
Life history strategies of many birds in the Neotropics remain poorly known. In particular, details on the seasonal movements of individuals and populations within the Neotropics remain largely unknown, including short-distance ...
