The FisherJan may note that pleiotropy is not news, but the organismal
biologist can respond that appeal to stabilizing selection is vacuous, and surely would not predict the phylogenetic distribution of the character, without developmental and functional information, that is, an analysis of organismal
Much of our understanding of the nature of organismal
diversity reflects a feeling that one can explain differences among taxa in life style by differences in the design of various functional complexes in the body.
Scientists from Canada and the US consider such aspects as important steps toward ecosystem-based fishery management, a changing perspective on zooplankton of the Gulf of Maine, anthropogenic and external influences, organismal
biology in the age of ecosystem-based management, and thermal phenological factors affecting the survival of Atlantic salmon in the Gulf of Maine.
Michael Coates, an organismal
biologist and anatomist at the University of Chicago, the paper's second author, said: "There's some sort of pinch at the end of the Devonian."
Special attention is paid to showing how different approaches to automated identification can be applied to various organismal
groups and in varied applied research contexts such as biodiversity studies, biostratigraphy, conservation, and agriculture.
However, that boon comes with a price, warns Peter Curtis, professor of evolution, ecology, and organismal
Many of the organismal
chapters are very descriptive - this seems to reflect the embryonic nature of the research on almost all canopy organisms.
The 10 invited scholarly articles introduce the molecular biology of signal transduction with bone coupling, present a systems biology overview of how bone is physiologically connected at the organismal
level, and consider specialized aspects.
Recent molecular evidence indicates that primordial life may have undergone rampant horizontal gene transfer, which occurs frequently today when single-celled organisms swap genes using mechanisms other than usual organismal
They then shift to the enzymology of biotransformation, looking at the cellular and organismal
response to toxic agents; the chemical mechanisms, substrate selectivity, protein structures, and biology of genetics and regulation of the enzyme families P450 monooxygenases and glutathione transferases.
