For instance, Swindell and Bouzat (2006) provided evidence that the purging of deleterious recessive alleles in Drosophilia
melanogster led to significantly reduced inbreeding depression in certain lineages.
Topics include cell adhesion molecules at the Drosophilia
neuromuscular junction, synapse formation in the mammalian central nervous system, developmental axonal pruning and synaptic plasticity, cell adhesion molecules in synatopathies, the cadherin superfamily in synapse formation and function, nectins and nectin-like molecules in the nervous system, the Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule, molecular basis of lamina-specific synaptic connections in the retina, cell adhesion molecules of the NCAM family and their roles at synapses, ephrins and eph receptor tyrosine kinases in synapse formation, the role of integrins at synapses, and extracellular matrix molecules in neuromuscular junctions and central nervous system synapses.

, Bateman demonstrated that reproductive fitness in males tends to be limited by access to cafemales, and in females by the energetic costs of egg production (Bateman, 1948; Charnov, 1979; Leonard and Lukowiak, 1985; Leonard, 1991; Arnold, 1994; Anthes et at, 2006).
The contributors of these 16 articles focus first on the identification and regulation of germline stem cells in model organisms, describing the development of germline stem cells in Drosophilia
, analyzing the C.
