Most studies of evolutionary responses to climate change have focused on phenological responses to warming, and provide only weak evidence for evolutionary adaptation. This could be because phenological changes are more weakly linked to fitness than more direct mechanisms of climate change impacts, such as selective mortality during extreme weather events… (More)
Across Europe, rapid population declines are ongoing in many Afro-Palaearctic migratory bird species, but the development of appropriate conservation actions across such large migratory ranges is severely constrained by lack of understanding of the demographic drivers of these declines. By constructing regional integrated population models (IPMs) for one of… (More)
Male-biased sex ratios occur in many bird species, particularly in those with small or declining populations, but the causes of these skews and their consequences for local population demography are rarely known. Within-species variation in sex ratios can help to identify the demographic and behavioural processes associated with such biases. Small… (More)
In the title mol-ecule, C(19)H(21)BrN(2)O, the piperidone ring adopts a chair conformation with a total puckering amplitude Q(T) of 0.554 (2) Å. The dihedral angle between the benzene rings is 64.10 (7)°. There are no significant inter-molecular inter-actions.
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C(16)H(13)N(3)O(2), contains two independent mol-ecules in which the pyridine and benzene rings form dihedral angles of 81.7 (2) and 79.8 (2)°, indicating the twist in the mol-ecules. In the crystal, weak C-H⋯N inter-actions link mol-ecules into chains along .
In the title mol-ecule, C13H7N3O8, the phenyl and benzene rings are rotated from the mean plane of the central ester group by 18.41 (9) and 81.80 (5)°, respectively. The dihedral angle between the rings is 80.12 (14)°. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked by weak C-H⋯O inter-actions, forming helical chains along .
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C(16)H(34)N(4) (2+)·2I(-)·2H(2)O, contains one half-cation, one iodide anion and one water mol-ecule. The cation has crystallographically imposed centrosymmetric symmetry. Despite some differences in the unit-cell dimensions, packing analysis on a cluster of 15 cations and a comparison of the hydrogen bonding… (More)
THE ASYMMETRIC UNIT OF THE TITLE COMPOUND [SYSTEMATIC NAME: (R,R)-2,4-bis-(4-hydroxy-phen-yl)-N,N'-dimethyl-3-oxapentane-1,5-diammonium bis-(hydrogen sulfate)], C(18)H(26)N(2)O(3) (2+)·2HSO(4) (-), contains one half-cation and one hydrogen sulfate anion. The cation has crystallographically imposed twofold symmetry with the rotation axis passing through the… (More)
The asymmetric unit of the anhydrous title compound, 2Na(+)·C(4)H(4)O(6) (2-), contains two sodium cations and one tartrate anion. Each sodium ion is six coordinate, with bonding to six O atoms from both the carboxyl-ate and hydroxyl groups of the anion. A three-dimensional coordination network is formed with sodium ions stacking in layers along the c-axis… (More)
