A New Giant Compsognathid Dinosaur with Long Filamentous Integuments from Lower Cretaceous of Northeastern China
A new compsognathid dinosaur, Sinocalliopteryx gigas gen. et sp. nov., is erected based on a complete skeleton from the Early Cretaceous Yixian Formation of western Liaoning, northeastern China. It
Reproductive consequences of the timing of seasonal movements in a nonmigratory wild bird population
TLDR
New capture–recapture– resight models are developed that use both data types to model breeding outcome conditional on the unknown individual arrival times and are consistent with theoretical models that suggest an important role for competition in shaping fine-scale seasonal movements.
Analysis of heavy metals in fish samples along the east coastal region ofValinokkam, Ramanathapuram District, Tamilnadu
Heavy metals are non-biodegradable which cause cytotoxic and carcinogenic effects in animals. Being at top of the aquatic food chain fish constitute a major source of heavy metal in food. The
HOST PREFERENCE BY DIACHASMIMORPHA LONGICAUDATA ( HYMNEOPTERA : BRACONIDAE ) REARED ON LARVAE OF ANASTREPHA FRATERCULUS AND CERATITIS CAPITATA ( DIPTERA : TEPHRITIDAE )
TLDR
This study confirmed that both C. capitata and A. fraterculus are appropriate host for rearing D. longicaudata, but provided evidence that female parasitoid progeny yield can be substantially improved by using A.fraterculus larvae as the host instead of C. fratculus larvae.
Distribution , abundance and habitat use of deep diving cetaceans in the North-East Atlantic
In spite of their oceanic habitat, deep diving cetacean species have been found to be affected by anthropogenic activities, with potential population impacts of high intensity sounds generated by
Tyrant flycatchers coming out in the open : phylogeny and ecological radiation of Tyrannidae ( Aves , Passeriformes )
TLDR
A well-resolved phylogeny based on DNA sequences from three nuclear introns for 128 taxa for Tyrannidae is presented, confirming much of the overall picture of Tyrannidae relationships, and also identifying several novel relationships.
EGG LAYING BEHAVIOR OF MEDITERRANEAN FRUIT FLIES ( DIPTERA : TEPHRITIDAE ) : IS SOCIAL FACILITATION IMPORTANT ?
TLDR
It is found that focal flies did not prefer to alight on a kumquat occupied by an ovipositing fly compared with a similar but unoccupied kumqat, suggesting that social facilitation of oviposition-associated behavior may not be a ubiquitous phenomenon in medflies.
The House Sparrow is Homeless: A Small Attempt to Conservation
TLDR
In this college the college has taken an initiative step by setting Nest pot in various locations where sparrows noticed and places where chance nesting is positive, and has installed more than 100 nest pot in and around found campuses of the Rover Education Institutions.
Breeding performance of the grasshopper buzzard ( Butastur rufipennis ) in a natural and a human-modified West African savanna
Few studies have examined raptor reproduction in response to land-use change in sub-Saharan Africa, hampering conservation efforts to address regional declines. To further our understanding of
