The genomic consequences of sexual selection
Sex-differences in phenotype, development, and life-history can alter the strength of selection experienced by males and females. In particular, theoretical models have demonstrated that differences in the strength of ...

Migratory timing, fitness, and behaviour in a Neotropical migrant songbird: insights from long-term data and experiments
Migratory birds face the distinct challenge of travelling between widely separated and environmentally distinct areas for their breeding and non-breeding periods. They may be faced with different pressures at different ...
Biomanipulation in two Ontario Precambrian Shield lakes: a multi-proxy paleolimnological analysis
Food web biomanipulations provide the means to partly control water quality problems (i.e. algal blooms) in lakes by altering internal ecological mechanisms. However biomanipulation mechanisms are complex and the results ...
Correlates and temporal variation in call phenology of eastern Ontario frogs
Climate change has been predicted to have long-term consequences for North American ecosystems. Amphibians in particular are considered indicators of ecosystem health because of their sensitivity to environmental change – ...
Characterization of the C. elegans PLM Mechanosensory Neurons at the L1 larval stage
Axon guidance is the developmental process where developing neurons navigate their processes based on attractive and repulsive cues. C. elegans has been an instrumental model in the study of neurobiology with one of the ...
Age-dependent Effect of Environmental Light on Spectral Sensitivity and Body Colouration of Nile tilapia Oreochromis Niloticus
Signal reception and production form the basis of animal communication, and are largely constrained by environmental biophysical factors such as environmental light. However, the role of environmental light in producing ...
Windows of opportunity: the timing of dispersal events influences zooplankton community response to environmental change in Subarctic ponds
Theoretical and empirical work has shown that community diversity and composition can be influenced by both local conditions and dispersal from a regional species pool. This may be especially true shortly after environmental ...
Timing and Mechanism of Sepsis-Induced Delayed Gastric Emptying in a Novel Mouse Model
Sepsis-induced delayed gastric emptying is a significant clinical problem for patients in intensive care units worldwide. A series of studies were carried out to examine the nature and mechanisms of sepsis-induced delayed ...
