Ortet Age and Clonal Effects on Growth and Market Value of Fraser Fir (Abies fraseri) Grafts as Christmas Trees

FORESTS, 9(4).

By: E. Hinesley n, J. Frampton n, B. Deal* & E. Deal*

author keywords: grafting; ortet; ramet; vegetative propagation; shearing; Christmas tree grade; cone crop; scion material
TL;DR: The effect of age on Fraser fir clones varies so that pre-screening might identify some older selections suitable for use as scion donors, and fixed versus variable shearing regimes had little effect on tree value, although some individual clones responded better to one regime or the other.

Function and underlying mechanisms of seasonal colour moulting in mammals and birds: what keeps them changing in a warming world?

BIOLOGICAL REVIEWS, 93(3), 1478–1498.

author keywords: coat colour moult; seasonal adaptation; camouflage mismatch; climate change; phenotypic mismatch; hare; arctic fox; weasel; Siberian hamster; ptarmigan
MeSH headings : Animals; Birds / physiology; Climate Change; Mammals / physiology; Molting; Pigmentation; Seasons
TL;DR: It is found that across species, the main function of SCC moults is seasonal camouflage against snow, and photoperiod is the main driver of the moult phenology, and the synthesis suggests that due to limited plasticity in S CC moulting, evolutionary adaptation will be necessary to mediate future camouflage mismatch.

Co-occurrence dynamics of endangered Lower Keys marsh rabbits and free-ranging domestic cats: Prey responses to an exotic predator removal program

ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION, 8(8), 4042–4052.

By: M. Cove n, B. Gardner*, T. Simons n & . Allan F. O'Connell*

author keywords: invasive species; occupancy; predator management; predator-prey dynamics
TL;DR: It is suggested that while rabbits can colonize and persist at sites where cats occur, it is the number of individual cats at a site that more strongly influences rabbit occupancy and colonization as they recolonize restored habitats. (via Semantic Scholar)

Response of beach-nesting American Oystercatchers to off-road vehicles: An experimental approach reveals physiological nuances and decreased nest attendance

The Condor, 120(1), 47–62.

author keywords: Field experiment; in situ; paired design; flight response; freezing behavior; American Oystercatcher
TL;DR: Higher nest attendance and lower departure rates late in incubation may have reflected a stronger attachment to nests closer to hatching or habituation to the driving treatment, although individuals continued to exhibit physiological responses to passing vehicles throughout incubation.
