Experimenting with sex and speciation: Does intersexual co-evolution drive population divergence?
It has been almost 150 years since Darwin’s “The Origin of Species” was published, yet the mechanisms that lead to the creation of new species are still a topic of fervent research in Evolutionary Biology. In the last ...
Identification of components in crude oil that are chronically toxic to the early life stages of fish
The risk of crude oil exposure to the early life stages (ELS) of fish is difficult to assess, given the complexity of the chemical composition of different oils. The aromatic portion of crude oil contains polycyclic aromatic ...
Physiological and Behavioural Responses of Largemouth Bass Yearlings (Micropterus salmoides) to Hypoxia at Summer and Winter Temperatures
The main objective of this thesis was to determine the metabolic and behavioural outcomes from hypoxia exposure to largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) yearlings when acclimated to either winter (5°C) or summer (20°C) ...
Molecular Identification and Messenger RNA Levels of a Monocarboxylate Transporter (MCT) in Fundulus Heteroclitus, a Hypoxia Tolerant Teleost Fish
Monocarboxylate transporters (MCTs) are bi-directional symporters that couple proton movement to a variety of glycolytic metabolites, including lactate and pyruvate. As such, MCTs not only play a crucial role in pH ...
