Articles P rinciples of fluvial geomorphology have guided the development of much of riverine ecology over the last half-century. A prominent example is the influential river continuum concept (RCC; Vannote et al. 1980). Based on early principles of fluvial geomorphology (e.g., Leopold et al. 1964), the RCC emphasizes spatially and temporally averaged(More)
Genistein and other inhibitors of protein tyrosine kinases were examined for effects on neurite elongation and growth cone morphology in the rat PC12 pheochromocytoma cell line. Genistein increased the rate of neurite elongation in PC12 cells grown on a collagen/polylysine substratum after priming with nerve growth factor (NGF), but had no effect on(More)

In 2002–2004, we examined the flight responses of 49 species of native and exotic bark and ambrosia beetles (Coleoptera: Scolytidae and Platypodidae) to traps baited with ethanol and/or (−)-α-pinene in the southeastern US. Eight field trials were conducted in mature pine stands in Alabama, traps baited with ethanol lures (release rate, about 0.6 g/day at(More)
Wildfires burned over 200,000 ha of forest lands in Florida froin April to July 1998. This unique disturbance event provided a valuable opportunity to study the interactions of summer wildfires with the activity of pine feeding insects and their associates in the southeastern United States. We compared tree mortality with abundance of bark and atnbrosia(More)
We determined the responses of the southern pine sawyer, Monochamus titillator (F.) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), to the pheromones (ipsenol, ipsdienol, and lanierone) used by pine engraver beetles (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) in the southeastern United States. (+/-)-Ipsenol, (+/-)-ipsdienol, or a combination increased catches of M. titillator in Florida,(More)
Analyses of the enantiomeric composition of ipsdienol produced by individual male pine engravers,Ips pini (Say), from six populations in British Columbia, support the hypothesis that New York and Idaho races of this species hybridize in southeastern British Columbia. Production profiles, expressed as frequency distributions of (+):(-) ipsdienol ratios [=(More)
Bark beetle infested pines are an ephemeral habitat utilized by a diverse assemblage of insects. Although many bark beetle insect associates have little or no measurable impact on bark beetle brood production, some reduce brood production by either competing with brood for the limited phloem tissue or by feeding on brood. Several studies have observed(More)
BACKGROUND Aside from the ecological impacts, invasive species fascinate ecologists because of the unique opportunities that invasives offer in the study of community ecology. Some hypotheses have been proposed to illustrate the mechanisms that allow exotics to become invasive. However, positive interactions between exotic and native insects are rarely(More)
The nonreceptor tyrosine protein kinases pp60c-src, p59fyn, and pp62c-yes are localized in growth cones of developing neurons, but their function is undefined. To determine whether these tyrosine kinases were capable of regulating substrate-dependent axon growth, cultures of cerebellar neurons from wild-type, src-, fyn-, and yes- mice were analyzed for(More)
