Clutch Investment in the Chilean Swallow (Tachycineta meyeni) Shifts with Time of Breeding and Position in the Sequence of Laying

The Condor, 114(2), 377–384.

By: M. Liljesthröm*, C. Cooper* & J. Reboreda*

author keywords: egg size; laying order; clutch size; reproductive investment; Tachycineta meyeni
TL;DR: Investment in clutches of the Chilean Swallow at the southern limit of its range was investigated, and predicted by energy/nutrient constraints, clutch size and yolk size decreased over the breeding season, though egg mass increased. (via Semantic Scholar)

Natural History Traits Associated with Detecting Mortality Within Residential Bird Communities: Can Citizen Science Provide Insights?

Environmental Management, 50(1), 11–20.

By: C. Cooper*, K. Loyd*, T. Murante*, M. Savoca* & J. Dickinson*

author keywords: Domestic cat; Predator-prey interactions; Urbanization; Birdfeeders; "My Yard Counts"; "PredatorWatch"
MeSH headings : Animals; Birds / growth & development; Cats / physiology; Conservation of Natural Resources / methods; Conservation of Natural Resources / trends; Ecosystem; Environmental Monitoring / methods; Models, Theoretical; Nesting Behavior / physiology; Population Density; Population Dynamics; Predatory Behavior / physiology; Reproduction / physiology; Species Specificity; United States
TL;DR: It was found that species that glean their prey from the ground or breed in nest boxes were three times more likely to be depredated by cats, while birds that hawk were over two times less likely to become cat prey than would be predicted by random chance. (via Semantic Scholar)

Influence of sampling scheme on the inference of sex-biased gene flow in the American badger (Taxidea taxus)

Canadian Journal of Zoology, 90(10), 1231–1242.

By: E. Kierepka*, E. Latch* & B. Swanson*

author keywords: Taxidea taxus; American badger; sex-biased dispersal; sampling; spatial autocorrelation
TL;DR: The study emphasizes the importance in deciphering between actual behavioral mechanisms and sampling effects when interpreting genetic data to understand other factors that influence population density and territoriality. (via Semantic Scholar)

2012 journal article

Photosynthetic response to genome methylation affects the growth of Chinese white poplar

Tree Genetics & Genomes, 8(6), 1407–1421.

author keywords: Photosynthesis; DNA methylation; Growth trait; Methylation-sensitive amplification polymorphism (MSAP) Candidate markers
TL;DR: Positive correlations between photosynthetic characteristics, such as Pn and Gs, and total relative methylation level and relative hemimethylation (CNG methylation) level were investigated and linked to genes taking part in, e.g., photosystem II. (via Semantic Scholar)

2012 journal article

2n egg formation in Populus × euramericana (Dode) Guinier

Tree Genetics & Genomes, 8(6), 1237–1245.

By: X. Xi*, D. Li*, W. Xu*, L. Guo, J. Zhang* & B. Li*

author keywords: 2n eggs; Poplar; Simple sequence repeat (SSR); First division restitution (FDR); Asynchronous megasporogenesis
TL;DR: Cytological analyses of megasporogenesis revealed that meiosis of the maternal parent was asynchronous, and cytological evidence suggests that 2n eggs result from FDR after treatment with colchicine, as a portion of megaspore mother cells (MMCs) were within the first division at the post-pollination stage.

Information beyond the forum: Motivations, strategies, and impacts of citizen participants seeking information during a consensus conference

Public Understanding of Science, 22(8), 955–970.

By: J. Delborne*, A. Anderson*, D. Kleinman*, M. Colin & M. Powell

author keywords: consensus conference; deliberation; information seeking; Internet; mass media; nanotechnology; public engagement
TL;DR: This study demonstrates that conceptualizing models of deliberation as standalone settings of communication exchange ignores the reality of the complex information environment from which deliberative participants draw when making sense of technical issues, and future citizen deliberations must incorporate outside information seeking in the design of the exercises.
